They’ve been nabbed. The District Attorney’s office reports:
This morning at about 9:30 a.m., Dallas police submitted five cases of assault public servant against Ian McConnell Walker [left] and Joseph Robert Tellini with the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office. Our intake section is currently processing the cases. Both defendants surrendered to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office this morning and are in the process of being booked in to Lew Sterrett Justice Center.
These cases will be processed and entered into our system today. As with all of our felony cases, they will be set for grand jury at some point in the near future, but our office will not release the date of the grand jury hearings because the details of grand jury proceedings are secret by law. When and if they are indicted or no-billed by a grand jury, the decision of the grand jury will be released to the media.
Prosecutors do plan to seek an enhancement of the charges from 3rd degree felonies to a 2nd degree felonies because of the presence of a controlled substance in the muffins. Third degree felonies carry a punishment range of 2 to 10 years in the penitentiary and up to a $10,000 fine. Second degree felonies carry a punishment range of 2 to 20 years in the penitentiary and up to a $10,000 fine.
