New trial date set for of Twin Peaks biker after jury deadlocked

WACO, Texas (KWTX) After a mistrial was declared last week, a spring 2018 trial date has been set for the first defendant to go on trial in the deadly Twin Peaks shootout.

The retrial date for Christopher “Jake” Carrizal, 36, will be April 2, the court coordinator for Waco’s 54th District Court said.

“We’ll be ready,” McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna said Tuesday.

Attempts to reach Carrizal’s attorney, Casie Gotro, were unsuccessful.

A mistrial was declared in the case after the jury couldn’t come to any agreement on the three gang-related charges on which Carrizal was indicted in connection with the 2015 biker shootout at Waco’s Twin Peaks restaurant.

“At the end of the day they couldn’t, there wasn’t enough evidence that the Dallas Chapter, and specifically Jake Carrizal, had committed any violence against any person that wasn’t self-defense,” Gotro said Friday in response to the ruling.

Jurors sent a note to the judge at around 11:15 a.m. that said there was no chance they could reach a verdict on the other two counts against Jacob Carrizal, 35.

The mistrial was declared two years to the day after Carrizal and 96 other bikers arrested on the day of the shootout were named in the first round of indictments handed up in the case.

Carrizal, the president of the Dallas chapter of the Bandidos, is accused of directing activities of a street gang, engaging in organized criminal activity with the underlying offense of murder and engaging in organized criminal activity with the underlying offense of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the May 17, 2015 shootout that left nine bikers dead and more than 20 injured.
