Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Democrat DA in Texas agrees to resign amidst claims of incompetence, mishandling of criminal cases, and misconduct”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Democrat prosecutor in Texas, who is facing suspension, has submitted her resignation after nearly two years of bungled prosecutions and for allegedly mishandling a case against the suspect in one of America's biggest mass shootings on record. El Paso County District Attorney Yvonne Rosales' resignation takes effect just one day before a judge was set to decide whether she should be thrown out of office pending a trial.

The process of giving Rosales the boot was first initiated on Aug. 24 by El Paso criminal defense attorney Omar Carmona, who filed a petition to remove the Democratic DA for incompetency and alleged official misconduct.

The petition accused Rosales of failure to charge cases in a timely manner; significant decreases in case filings; mishandling of the Gabaldon murder case; mishandling and stalling of the 2019 El Paso Walmart massacre case; and bad faith representations to the the court.

"Rosales' incompetency is demonstrated by both her conduct AND the conduct of her subordinates," said the petition.

Carmona suggested it'd be prudent for Rosales to resign rather than go to trial, saying, "I believe that she will see the writing on the wall."
