Investigation into Beaumont blogger and attorney; Possible perjury and witness intimidation
KFDM News - A local website is making allegations that an area attorney and a Beaumont blogger are under investigation for possible perjury and witness intimidation.
Investigative journalist Jerry Jordan says on his SETinvestigates.com website that Attorney John Morgan is a the target of that investigation as well as blogger Phillip Klein.
District Judge Layne Walker has appointed a special prosecutor from Bryan to determine if charges should be brought against Morgan and Klein, according to Jordan.
The investigation stems from alleged perjury during Morgan's child custody case and from alleged witness intimidation relating to the Steven Hartman case.
Special prosecutor Shane Phelps is a criminal defense attorney who served 10 years as assistant district attorney in Brazos County.
KFDM called Morgan and Klein for reaction. Klein told KFDM News he welcomes the special prosecutor and wants to talk with the special prosecutor and grand jury.
We left messages with Morgan and had not heard back from him as of news time.
