Change of venue?

The attorneys for former HPD Captain Mark Aguirre and Sergeant Steve Wenzel are requesting a change of venue for their upcoming trial on five counts of official oppression, claiming that the local coverage has poisoned the jury pool against them.

Aguirre’s attorney, Terry Yates, said “the amount of coverage and the negativity of the coverage” would prejudice a fair trial in Houston. Wenzel’s attorney, Joe Bailey, said “day to day coverage” of the case will likely continue.

The lawyers did not ask for any particular location for the trial.

Whatever. Personally, I think that if Andrea Yates can be tried in Houston, then these guys can, too. Nice try, fellas.
