District Judge Removed as Enrique Arochi Appeals Christina Morris Kidnapping Conviction. State District Judge Mark Rusch, who presided over convicted kidnapper Arochi’s trail last year, has been disqualified and recused from further proceedings in the case. Arochi filed the motion through his attorney Steve Miears, who accused Rusch of bias, suggesting that the judge “violated Arochi’s due process rights by unlawfully interfering with the attorney-client relationship.” Last September, Arochi was convicted of the aggravated kidnaping of Morris, who has not been seen since Aug. 30, 2014.

The cost would be $3 by August 2018, and monthly passes would go up from $80 to $96. There will be two public meetings—one at Addison Town Hall and the other at Rowlett City Hall—next Thursday to discuss the proposed changes.
