Appeals court denies Evans’ defense motion

(Continued)

The Democrat was unable to reach Evans’ attorney Larry Moore Friday afternoon but the Parker County District Attorney’s Office said the defense could ask that a higher court hear the issue.

Evans has 30 days to file a petition requesting the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals consider an appeal, which is a discretionary decision for the court, Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain said.

After the appeals process has concluded, they will likely need to hold hearings on other pretrial matters before a trial date can be scheduled, Swain said.
