Lt. Governor Dan Patrick Statement on Indictment


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick made the following statement regarding the recent indictments of Attorney General Ken Paxton:

“It is important to recognize that an indictment is not a conviction. Under our Constitution, every person is innocent until proven guilty.

“I am confident our judicial system will weigh all the facts and applicable law with a blind eye for justice and Ken Paxton, like anyone else, will be afforded his day in court.”
