Defense attorney Dick DeGuerin, who represented Calvin Walker in federal case, talks with KFDM News about Jefferson County grand jury indictment of Walker

JEFFERSON COUNTY - by Scott Lawrence

KFDM News spoke by phone with Dick DeGuerin, the well known Houston attorney who represented Calvin Walker in his federal case, for reaction to Tuesday's indictment of Walker by a Jefferson County grand jury. We spoke with DeGuerin just before Walker posted bond and was released from jail.

"I am still representing him," DeGuerin told KFDM News. "I'm sure we'll talk about this as soon as he posts bail and is released. It's the same crap the federal government tried and failed to convince a jury was fraud. The evidence in that federal trial was that BISD didn't rely on any of those invoices. The money they paid was on work that was done and BISD was completely satisfied. This is nothing but sour grapes. I've seen the indictments. It's the same allegations in the federal trial we tried almost two years ago. The evidence was very clear that BISD was satisfied with the work, got dollar for dollar value for what they were billed, and did not rely on any fake invoices. If this case goes to trial, Calvin Walker was hired by BISD to do extensive work, particularly following all the damage to BISD campuses from the hurricane, but also to make new installations. He did that work, did a great job, and he was paid for it. It should be the end  of the story. I might add, BISD was completely satisfied with his work. He was released on a personal recognizance bond in federal court on exactly the same cases. It's chicken---- if you ask me."

When told about District Attorney Cory Crenshaw's vow to go after corruption in BISD, and when told a new D.A. will take office following the November election because Crenshaw was appointed by Governor Rick Perry to fill the unexpired term of Tom Maness, who retired, Deguerin said, "January 1 can't come soon enough for me."
