“The average man on the street might say, “Judge, you’re just not being fair.”–Judge James Morgan of Bosque County who recused Strother
Susan Criss and Rick Rousseau, along with attorneys for two other accused, were successful in arguing for the recusal of Judge Strother from the Waco Twin Peaks prosecution against their client. A retired judge ruled Wednesday that 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother should be removed from presiding over the cases of three Twin Peaks bikers, saying he thinks the average man on the street might say, “Judge, you’re just not being fair.” “It just didn’t smell good, and the evidence at our hearing really didn’t allay that feeling,” Morgan wrote.
