Today's Houston Chronicle reports, "State Bar investigating DA in wrongful conviction," by Brian Rogers.
The State Bar of Texas is investigating former Burleson County District Attorney Charles Sebesta in the capital murder conviction of Anthony Graves in 1994, a state senator announced Tuesday.
Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, tweeted a picture of the letter Graves received from the State Bar's Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel with Friday's date confirming the investigation.
In January, Ellis, state Sen. John Whitmire and state Rep. Senfronia Thompson, all Houston Democrats, joined Graves in urging the state bar to investigate and punish Sebesta.
