The driving while intoxicated trial of former Texas health commission lawyer Jack Stick has been rescheduled for April of this year, once again delaying the judgment of a man who was recently linked to a state contracting scandal, the Houston Chronicle reported on February 20.
Prosecutor David Escamilla said Stick’s trial should have occurred on Thursday, February 19 but has been re-scheduled for Thursday, April 30.
Stick’s case was the result of a September 2012 arrest wherein Austin police said they stopped Stick for driving erratically while on the road, and Stick refused to submit to field sobriety tests.
Texas Governor Rick Perry received criticism for not asking Stick, a fellow Republican, to step down, although he attempted to force the termination of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, a Democrat, who plead guilty to drunk driving.
