TEXAS JURY ACQUITS WINKLER COUNTY NURSE

On February 11 a Texas jury took less than an hour to acquit Anne Mitchell, the Winkler County Registered Nurse brought to trial in a shameful abuse of prosecution, the sheriff’s office, and the Texas good ol’ boy network. Facing 10 years if found guilty on trumped up charges of misusing county records for reporting the bad behavior of a physician, Mitchel’s nightmare is finally over. As far as the criminal trial goes anyway. Charges against Vicki Galle, initially a co-defendant, were suddenly dropped before the trial began.   Both Mitchell and Vickilyn Galle filed a civil law suit in August of 2009. For an excellent recap, start to finish, visit the ScienceBasedMedicine blog. Also review the time line of events at the Texas Nurses Association site.
