Harris County DA: Criminal Evidence Destroyed


Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg is telling lawyers that stored evidence in ten-thousand criminal cases may have been destroyed.  

Most of Ogg's emailed notifications this week went to defense lawyers for more than 77-hundred defendants, causing an uproar among them.  

An investigation last year revealed that a deputy cleaning out the property room destroyed more than 20-thousand pieces of evidence.  As a result, Devon Anderson, the district attorney at the time, dismissed nearly 150 pending criminal cases.
