Several Twin Peaks cases to be dismissed

McLENNAN COUNTY, Texas - FOX 44 has confirmed with the McLennan County District Attorney's Office that it plans to dismiss several of the Twin Peaks shootings cases tomorrow.

As you remember, more than 170 people were arrested after the deadly shooting back in 2015.

The first trial ended last year in a hung jury.

This comes after months of hearings and trials filled with drama. 

The first biker trial for Jacob Carrizal ended in a mistrial, followed by his defense attorney asking to be removed from the case

During the Carrizal Trial, there was also controversy involving a juror who knew one of Carrizal's rival bikers.

One judge from the 54th State District Court has already been recused from two separate upcoming biker trials. 

Defense attorneys have requested perjury hearings involving the McLennan County district attorney and a Waco detective.

On multiple occasions, hearings have been requested to disqualify District Attorney Abel Reyna for taking part in the biker trials. Reyna was also accused of taking part in illegal activity, including handling cocaine.

Two defense attorneys for Twin Peaks bikers became unhappy after a judge put an attempt to disqualify Reyna on hold.

The deadly shooting in 2015 resulted in over 170 people being arrested. It was a shootout between the Bandidos and the Cossacks - two rival biker gangs.

More than 100 bikers were charged after nine people died and over a dozen were injured.

FOX 44 will be in the courtroom tomorrow and will bring you the latest on Facebook, Twitter and on FOX 44 News at 5:30.
