Roof Repairs Continue After Courtroom Rain Shower

Work continues to fix the leaking ceilings at the Smith County Courthouse, where Williams' trial was supposed to start.

Work on the roof above Judge Cynthia Kent's 114th District courtroom has been ongoing for several weeks, and the county says workmen didn't seal a seam, allowing Sunday night's rain to pour into the building.

We're told the contractor working on the roof is taking care of replacing damaged sheet rock and ceiling tiles, and there is no permanent damage. The county now expects the courtroom to be ready Thursday morning.
