Statement of State Representative Ron Reynolds


HOUSTON, Texas (April 25, 2012) -- Today, State Representative Ronald Reynolds released the following statement regarding an arrest on Tuesday, April 24, 2012.


"In the early evening of Tuesday, April 24, 2012, I was arrested for the alleged violation of a law known as barratry, or the unlawful solicitation of clients by lawyers. While the facts of the case have yet to be disclosed to me, it is my intent to fully cooperate with the prosecutors who are pursuing the charges," said Rep. Reynolds.


"I maintain my innocence and plan to vigorously defend myself against all allegations. Although it appears that the charges filed against me are politicized, I do not take the matter lightly. In fact, since becoming an elected official, I have voted for new laws holding lawyers guilty of barratry more accountable to their victims.


It is my hope that the truth regarding the allegations will soon be made clear.  I have full confidence in our judicial system and look forward to a prompt resolution."
