Senator Ellis responds to Announcement of Criminal Justice Integrity Unit

"I commend the Court of Criminal Appeals and Justice Hervey for stepping forward, showing leadership and taking the initiative to propose the Texas Criminal Justice Integrity Unit. I look forward to meeting with Justice Hervey to discuss the details of the unit, working with the group, and hope it will prove to be an effective means to address the core problems in our justice system, and, more importantly, advance the reforms we desperately need to ensure fairness in our justice system without further delay."
