Longview JP recovering after shooting

An East Texas justice of the peace is making a steady recovery from a gunshot wound. Back in March, Gregg County Justice of the Peace Sam Lawson was shot during an alleged domestic dispute with his wife. His family says that Lawson is still recovering at Baylor Rehab in Dallas and hopes to return to his job. His wife, Ina Lawson, was released from a behavioral treatment facility, and is in the custody of her granddaughter. As part of the release, she must be supervised at all times. The couple filed for divorce and restraining orders in April.
