No charges for Harris County family court judge accused of falsifying records
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A Harris County family court judge who was accused of falsifying court documents will not face charges.
Judge Denise Pratt was no-billed by a Harris County grand jury Friday. This comes after allegations from Webster attorney Greg Enos that Judge Pratt was backdating documents to hide long delays in rulings in her cases. That's when district clerk Chris Daniel launched an investigation.
The grand jury, however, concluded that there wasn't enough evidence to support those allegations.
"We are pleased that the grand jury agrees with us that there's absolutely no evidence that Judge Pratt tampered with court documents or did anything illegal," said attorney Terry W. Yates said in a press release.
