10-DC I Rio, (Texas) NEWS-HERALD, Tuesday, February 14,1981 Famed attorney enters animal case at Marlin MARLIN (AP) - Flamboyant defense attorney Richard "Racehorse" Haynes, representing the leader of a group that is investigating alleged mistreatment of horses in Falls County, says more evidence could be presented in the case. "I promise you, just like MacArthur, we will return. And it will be quicker than anyone imagined," Haynes said Monday after criminal trespass charges against his client, Alex Pacheco, were dropped. Pacheco testified Monday before a Falls County grand jury on deaths and malnourishment of horses which he alleged resulted from negligence. Charges of animal cruelty also were dropped Monday against Mike Davis, a Central Texas rancher who had been accused of letting his horses go without adequate food during subfreezing temperatures recently. District Attorney Tom Sehon announced the dropping of charges that Davis had filed against Pacheco, a leader in a group known as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Sehon dismissed the charges "without prejudice," which means the charges could be filed again later. But prosecutors said 12 counts of theft involving $1.5 million were still pending against Roland Jones Jr. in connection with operation of a horse- dealing operation. Area ranchers said they bought horses under the promise by Jones that his company would buy them back later for a higher amount. Ranchers told prosecutors that when the time came for the horses to be bought back, Jones told them the company didn't have enough money to buy the horses back. The ranchers said the horses went hungry because they didn't have enough funds to feed them through Texas' worse winter in years. Sehon, in dismissing the charges brought by and against Pacheco, said his staff was concerned they might be unable to comply with provisions of the Speedy Trial Act. The grand jury was expected to reconvene either Feb. 20 or "sometime in March," said prosecutors. Assistant Texas Attorney General Luis Vallejo emerged from the grand jury meeting about 4 p.m. and told Haynes, "Your clients have been unable to provide us with anything." Vallejo was assisting Sehon in the investigation into the practices of the horse-dealing operation. Vallejo invited Haynes to come back with Pacheco when he thought they might have more evidence. Haynes, asked why he was involved in defense of someone charged with a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge, asked, "Have you seen the pictures of those dying and starving horses? Wouldn't that motivate you?" Geter dismissal sought DALLAS (AP) — Defense lawyers arguing that armed robbery charges against black engineer Lenell Geter resulted only from racism and police overzealousness say they hold little hope that their pre-trial maneuvering will be successful. Geter's attorneys have asked State District Judge John Ovard to dismiss the controversial charge "in the interest of justice" — a novel legal ploy that is appropriate because of the unusual circumstances of the case, they say. "It would be a remarkable piece of lawyering if we do (win dismissal)," said defense attorney George Hairston, who joined the case on behalf of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. A pre-trial hearing in the case continued today. Geter, 26, spent nearly 16 months in prison after being convicted of the robbery and sentenced to life in prison. After news reports raised doubts about his guilt, he was released in December and granted a new trial. A prosecutor raised the ire of Geter's attorneys when he disclosed Monday during the first day of the hearing that Geter owned a small, chrome pistol used in a South Carolina murder about eight years ago. Assistant District Attorney Norman Kinne admitted he could neither link Geter to the murder nor the gun to the Aug. 23,1982 robbery of a Balch Springs chicken restaurant. A large, black revolver was used in that robbery, witnesses said. Geter's pistol "has no connection to this case. It's obviously just a cheap shot," said defense attorney Lee Bowers. "They inferred he had some connection to a murder, and they know he didn't." Five eyewitnesses picked Geter out of photographic lineups after the Balch Springs robbery. But his colleagues at a Greenville defense contractor, E-Systems Inc., say he was at work that day. Hairston has been probing police procedures and retracing the route of a Polaroid picture of Geter through several suburban police departments in an attempt to prove that his client became a suspect only from convenience. "It will be apparant, when we get through, that the police investigation proceeded on no credible evidence," Hairston said. Court upholds prison order NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected an appeal by Texas penitentiary inmates objecting to a federal judge's changes in his prison-reform order. The three-judge panel Monday rejected an objection by 344 prisoners. They complained that the state: — Failed to furnish a Spanish language version of the notice of modification for Hispanics among the system's 33,000 prisoners. —The English version was deficient because it used too many big words for prisoners who read English at the fifth grade level. U.S. District Judge William Wayne Justice of Tyler on April 21, 1982, approved a change in the ban of the "turnkey" system — trustys who performed some guard roles.
