Had fun moderating a panel discussion at @AustinStartup week featuring @AlpacaMarket @towerfarms_ @juicesociety @texasfarmhouse. So interesting! @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Yeakel: Onyeri must also undergo a gambling treatment program, take a cognitive treatment program, pay more than $178,000 in restitution to various banks and IRS. @KVUE
#onyerisentencing Yeakel: Onyeri is dangerous and meant to kill Judge Julie Kocurek. An attack on a public servant is the most serious. This court must impose a sentence that would protect the public. Court sentences LIFE IN PRISON for Onyeri. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Judge Lee Yeakel: listened to a month’s worth of testimony. Both sides raised valid points. Declines to consider the 2 murders prosecutors brought up in court yesterday for purposes of sentencing. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Sentencing hearing for Chimene Onyeri about to start. Judge asked for additional time to consider punishment. Onyeri faces up to life in prison after a jury found him guilty of trying to kill State District Judge, Julie Kocurek, in April. @KVUE (old pic)
RT @ChiefCantu111: Tonight’s the big night, everyone come out to the City of Mustang Ridge National Night Out @TheHornATX @ErinHogan @Bucky…
#OnyeriSentencing No decision today. Judge taking the evening and recessing until tomorrow at 2pm to announce punishment. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Prosecution now presenting final argument. Asking for life in prison and that is the only fit punishment. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Defense attorney : Onyeri did not intend to kill Judge Julie Kocurek. He has a lot of admiration for what Judge Kocurek has gone through. He is asking for therapy for Onyeri. But if his client gets life, he won’t get therapy. He is asking for 30 years instead.
#OnyeriSentencing Defense attorney says there’s a reason murder charges were dropped against Onyeri. Evidence just not strong enough. His client does not deserve lengthy prison term for Houston crimes. Those crimes are not for this court to consider. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Onyeri is done. Defense is making final argument. Disputing evidence prosecution laid out earlier today. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Onyeri: “ I’m sorry once again.” Apologizing to Julie and Will Kocurek. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Onyeri: “I’m almost done.” @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Onyeri just cursed in court. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing During the guilt stage of the trial, attorneys stopped Onyeri when he rambled on. Will they stop him now? US District Judge Lee Yeakel said he wanted to hear from Onyeri before hearing from attorneys during this punishment phase. It has been about 22 minutes.
#OnyeriSentencing Onyeri still addressing the court and still rambling. “I like to gamble.” @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Onyeri: “I’m 31 today....I don’t do drugs.” He didn’t like a lot of the information revealed today. Before he started, he asked the judge if there was enough time. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Onyeri: Denying criminal activity brought up in court today. He is also rambling and at times, not making sense. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Onyeri: It’s been a long process for myself and my family. I apologize to Kocurek and her family. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Will Kocurek: I’m a 15-yr-old kid. I can’t get in my car. I can’t take my eyes off the rear view mirror. I won’t ever forget the feeling when Onyeri shot my mom. I don’t hate Onyeri but I hate what he did to me and my family. I ask the court to give him the max.
#OnyeriSentencing State district judge Julie Kocurek: please send a strong message to those who want to attack judges. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing State district judge Julie Kocurek: cost of her medical treatment and medical health continue to grow as well as security cost. She never feels safe anymore. Onyeri’s crime is egregious. Must be able to make decisions w/o fear as a judge. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing State District Judge Julie Kocurek: Last week, a small piece of metal came out of her wrist. She is scared for her life. Her 15-year-old son, Will, underwent trauma therapy. Went through 30 surgeries. Her family has been deeply affected. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing State District Julie Kocurek now addressing Onyeri and court. Thanks God she is alive. Has “affected every part of my life.” After coming out of coma, had to learn to walk again. Simple things like wearing her wedding ring is a thing of a past. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Prosecution calls 4th witness @FBI lead agent, Daniel Brust. Testified that witnesses said Onyeri killed Jacobi Alexander. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing 15 minute recess.
#OnyeriSentencing @FBI special agent Chad Fitzgerald testified that during the 2 hours of the murder of Jacobi Alexander on 5/18/15, Onyeri’s cell phone was off and 19 calls went to vm. No other times did his phone get so many calls. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing 3rd prosecution witness @FBI Special Agent Chad Fitzgerald. Expert analyst of cell phone records.
#OnyeriSentencing 2nd prosecution witness @houstonpolice Sgt. Michael Dykens. Talking about 2nd murder case now. Victim is 29-yr-old Jacobi Alexander who died 5/18/15. This is the 2nd murder Onyeri was charged with and eventually also dismissed. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Defense resumes cross of @Austin_Police Det. David Hruzek and the evidence in the 2008 Houston murder of Kenneth Brooks. Onyeri was initially charged in that case but that charge was later dismissed. All this to determine Onyeri’s ultimate time in prison. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing recess until 2pm.
#OnyeriSentencing Defense attorney continues cross with @Austin_Police Det. David Hruzek. Defense got detective to admit there was never a wig found at crime scene despite witness testimony saying Onyeri wearing a blonde wig the night of murder. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Defense attorney is now cross examining @Austin_Police Cold Case Detective, David Hrusek, over the victim, 18-year-old, Kenneth Brooks. Starting with Brooks’ criminal history. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing @Austin_Police Cold Case Det Hruzek now saying during 2018 re-interviews with some witnesses, some didn’t recall names, two admitted to not being truthful, and some didn’t remember info. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing @Austin_Police Cold Case Det. Hruzek said Onyeri called @houstonpolice voluntarily and told them he was in Beaumont the night of the murder despite several witnesses putting him at the scene of the crime during Hruzek’s re-interviewing of witnesses. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing @Austin_Police Cold Case Det. lays out testimony from several witnesses that puts Onyeri at the scene of one of the Houston murders. Those witnesses say Onyeri asked to hide in their apt after a fatal shooting. One also picked him out of a line up. @KVUE
@Austin_Police Cold Case Det., David Hrusek, going into details about the two Houston murders which Onyeri was initially charged with but those charges were eventually dropped. We are seeing crime scene photos. @KVUE
#OnyeriSentencing Prosecutors called their first witness: @Austin_Police cold case detective, David Hruzek, who testified that during his investigation into 2 Houston cold cases, he discovered Onyeri was charged with murder in those 2 cases. @KVUE
Federal sentencing hearing for Chimene Onyeri is underway this morning. He was found guilty of trying to kill state district judge, Julie Kocurek, at her home in April. Prosecution is calling witnesses. We are not allowed to record video. @KVUE
