On Wednesday, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals granted David Temple a new trial. If you follow Big Jolly at all, you would know that Kelly Siegler has been the focus of more than one story regarding prosecutorial misconduct. This particular trial involved a Katy football coach convicted of murdering his wife in a cold case that led to Kelly Siegler’s now defunct television show, Cold Justice. Siegler ran against Pat Lykos in the 2008 Republican Primary to replace Chuck Rosenthal, the former Harris County District Attorney who was forced to resign in disgrace. The timing of this decision signals that the Court of Criminal Appeals wanted to rule before the new judges took office. See Mary Lou Keel.
