Lawyer who lied in court may be headed back to ETX

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A former East Texas judge has signed paperwork that could send a Texas attorney to jail.

In September, Joel Mallory was accused of lying to 7th District Court Judge Kerry Russell.

In that hearing, the district attorney's office brought to light that Mallory had requested their trial be post-phoned because his mother died.

The DA's office said records showed Mallory's mother was alive when he made that request.

Now, the judge appointed to hear the charges against Mallory has given authorities permission to retrieve the lawyer from South Texas.
