Key Rulings in Ken Paxton Criminal Trial Tomorrow

Here’s the background to bring you up to speed on Paxton’s crimes and corruption

Tomorrow, State Criminal District Court Judge George Gallagher will rule on a series of motions in the ongoing prosecution of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.  The judge will rule on a request to move the trial out of Collin County, a request to delay the trial and a request to drop the indictments altogether.

Tomorrow will also mark over 600 days since Ken Paxton was indicted by a grand jury for felony securities fraud and over 1,000 days since Texans learned that Paxton failed to register as an investment advisor while soliciting investment money and receiving kickbacks for doing so.

From the outset, the Lone Star Project has detailed Ken Paxton’s felony criminal fraud prosecution and many of his other illegal and/or unethical activities.
