Accused Southlake juvenile trespassers could still face jail time
Tarrant County DA's office will review the matter on Friday (Sept. 28).
Southlake police chief Wade Goolsby insists that any suggestions that the teens accused of criminal trespass on a local construction site received some kind of special treatment are groundless.
His assurance comes as Kurt Stallings of the Tarrant County district attorney's office prepares to huddle with associates to consider whether the originally-filed charges of criminal trespass were reduced to lesser charges (posing no threat of jail time) as a result of improper coercion. An attorney for one of the accused teens (characterized as being from wealthy families) made a request to authorities to reconsider the severity of the charges - which request was apparently granted.
