    Didn't he have some felonies too? Or did those get dropped?

    I guess in the end, when enough time has passed, all Dupuy will get is a stern warning and a small (given his salary) fine.

    Meanwhile, someone with a quarter gram of crack will get 20 years...

    What does one have to do to NOT retain their license to practice law?
    That 'bar' must be set pretty darn high....

    In this day and time, it would seem from Washington DC to Sacramento, California all one has to do in order to refute or undercut right and truth,...is to magically "EVOLVE" his feelings, or thought process,to match current reasoning and thinking of the society he lives in.

    Ohhhh where did honesty,...integrity,....morality.....and character in public service, or society in general run off to? Where did doing right just because it was the right thing to do,...even when nobody down here was watching, go to?
    -
    When an individual does wrong,...one of the worst things concerning it other than the deed itself, is THAT INDIVIDUAL KNOWS HE/SHE WAS WRONG,...even if nobody else witnessed the wrongdoing. It builds that individual up, and strengthens him in the wrong places,...where habitual wrongdoing sneaks in, and causes a "MIGHTY FALL"
    sometime later in the life of that individual.

    That is exactly what happened to my favorite Judge.

    Dupuy got away with it for so long because the DA Jack Roady refused to act in the face of overwhelming evidence of criminal conduct by Dupuy. Roady insisted that all the evidence be sent to the Bar Association so he didn't have to investigate an elected official. The Bar sent it back to Roady telling him it was criminal in nature and his responsibility to prosecute. Roady then gives it to the AG's Office which quickly acted because the evidence was so overwhelming.

    The DA Roady is loathe to investigate elected officials and law enforcement, effectively creating a two-tiered system of justice in Galveston County.

    This is why people don't trust/like attorneys! The state bar, made up of attorneys, just sanctioned this scumbag's actions. What exactly does someone have to do to embarrass the bar enough that they will disbar them???!!!!

    I guess it's called the criminal justice system because the criminals are running the system!!!

    Maybe Shakespear was right
