Walther Juggernaut Rolls On, Keate trial on December 7th.

One of the most complex series of prosecutions in US History continues with Allen Keate being tried on Pearl Harbor Day this year.
The San Angelo Standard-Times - "Authorities decided Thursday afternoon to hold the jury trial in Eldorado, according to district clerk administrators.

District Clerk Peggy Williams said she plans to send out 300 notices today. Jurors will be pulled from voter registration rolls and driver’s license records.

Allen Keate will be tried Dec. 7 on a charge of sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony that carries a punishment of two to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000."
Meanwhile back in Colorado, an open and shut prosecution of a misdemeanor continues to confound the DA's office, and they refuse to comment on even the most elementary aspects of the case, such as whether or not there are any older misdemeanors they are still pursuing. Allen's case, like Raymond's, will be assembled, brought to trial and finished before El Paso County can get around to prosecuting a simple prank phone call that tied of almost all of CSPD for the duration about two years ago.

Seems the plan to move Allan Keate's case to San Angelo, Tom Green County was just reversed at the request of the Defense. Trial will be set in Eldorado, Schleicher County even though juror summons have been sent out already to Tom Green and Midland Counties. Judge Walther's made the decision in favor of Keate's request.

I believe a reporting error was made in this article. Raymond's case was downgraded to 2nd. Degree Sexual assault owing to crime date of November, 2004 which predated a charge of first degree. Allan Keate's case is based upon a crime date of April, 2006 and carries a sentence of First Degree, Texas Penal Code - section 22.011(2)(a) of life or 5 to 99 years, with a $10,000Dollar fine maximum.
