Oral Argument Next Wednesday: Colton Pitonyak's Appellate Attorney

According to the Third Court of Appeals' website, Colton Pitonyak's attorneys are Joseph A. Turner and Terrence W. Kirk. Joseph A. Turner is the same Joe Turner representing John Colyandro (Tom DeLay's and Jim Ellis' co-defendant), who is charged with multiple counts of unlawfully making/accepting contributions, contributing to a political party, and money laundering. Colyandro, Ellis, and DeLay are all currently scheduled for a pretrial hearing in Judge Bob Perkins' 331st District Court this March 7th.

Because I doubt I'll be able to get into what's sure to be a packed courtroom March 7th, I'm especially curious to see Turner arguing for Pitonyak. And, of course, I'm curious to see the DA's argument as well.
