State Rep. Reynolds Announces Dismissal of Pending Barratry Case

The Barratry Case Has Been Dismissed Against the First Black Representative for Fort Bend County Since Reconstruction

State Rep. Ron Reynolds (Fort Bend County, District 27) has announced the dismissal of the barratry case filed against him with the Harris County District Attorney's Office (Case No. 134513401010).

Rep. Reynolds was charged and never indicted of barratry by a Grand Jury. Barratry is the solicitation for legal services of a potential client by an attorney without the potential client's permission.

"I want to thank District Attorney Mike Anderson for doing the right thing and dismissing my case," said Rep. Reynolds. "I said from day one that once the facts came out, justice would prevail and I would be vindicated of all charges. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and supporting me and my family during this challenging time. I never lost faith in God and the Criminal Justice System."
