BREAKING!

In an article published this evening, Lauren McGaughy of the Times-Picayune cites an announcement by West Feliciana District Attorney Samuel D’Aquilla, that a grand jury has reindicted Wallace. McGaughy writes further that:

(DIRECT QUOTE FROM ARTICLE BEGINS)

George Kendall, one of Wallace's attorneys, said no one on his legal team was notified of the indictment Thursday. Documents filed in Louisiana's Middle District on Thursday show D'Aquilla notified the court of his intent to reindict Wallace.

"We have not received any official notification of an indictment, but if it is true, we are shocked that a state grand jury was asked to indict a man who has only days to live," Wallace's legal team said in a statement.

Kendall said he was "not surprised" that D'Aquilla didn't notify Wallace's legal team, but said the situation is disappointing and unusual.

McGaughy concludes that "the reindictment is largely a political move, as D'Aquilla said he would not ask that Wallace be put back behind bars, and also wouldn't set a court date until the end of the year.." Read the full article here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
