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.
