Lykos subpoenaed

That grand jury keeps stirring things up.

A grand jury investigating possible wrongdoing within the DA’s Office has officially subpoenaed DA Pat Lykos. The probe centers around problems with the Houston Police Department’s DWI testing vans.

The DA’s Office will neither confirm nor deny that there’s been a subpoena issued. They say that due to the secrecy of the grand jury proceedings, they can’t talk about it. But we do know that the DA has been subpoenaed and that some time in the next few weeks, she will be testifying.

This is an ongoing grand jury investigation that’s already seen some of the DA’s top assistants take the stand. At question are the DA’s use of so-called BAT vans used in drunk driving cases, and whether the DA’s Office knew of flaws with those testing vans without informing defense attorneys of those potential problems.

There are several links to prior coverage on that story, if you need to catch up a bit. Let’s just say that if this is true and it does happen, it’s going to be a big deal. Mark Bennett has more.
