Republican Party leader Johnnie B. Rogers files motion to dismiss assault

The attorney for former Republican Party leader Johnnie B Rogers, who pleaded no contest to a Class A misdemeanor in the beating of a newspaper reporter last year, filed a motion Monday to release his client from probation and dismiss the charges.

Rogers was sentenced to a six month probationary period during which he was required to complete an anger management course, 50 hours of community service and pay a $500 fine for assaulting Burnet Bulletin reporter James Walker at a Republican Primary watch party on Burnetís square in May last year.

The motion did not give any details on what community service was performed or details on the anger management course. Rogersí attorney, Richard Davis, wasnít helpful in providing any more information.

"Well it was discussed at the time of the plea that this would be coming,Ē Davis told a reporter in response to questions about the filing and terms of the probation.

When asked for specific information about completion of Rogers' community service and court proceedings, Davis responded: "I do not care to make any further comment. I donít understand whatís so hard to understand about that. Would you prefer I donít answer the phone next time?Ē
