Trial lawyers to read Declaration on July 1


LIVINGSTON – A public reading of the Declaration of Independence will be conducted at noon Friday, July 1, by the Polk County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (PCCLA) as part of their fourth annual Independence Day celebration.

The public is invited to attend as PCCLA members read the declaration at 101 W. Mill Street, between the Polk County Courthouse and the Polk County Judicial Center.

The local defense lawyers will be joining other defense attorneys across the state and nation in the reading ceremony. Defense lawyers are now scheduled to read the declaration in front of 80 county courthouses in Texas.

“Your local defense bar is committed to protecting and ensuring by rule of law the individual rights guaranteed by the Texas and federal constitutions in criminal cases,” said Travis E. Kitchens Jr., a PCCLA member.
