Wounded Austin Judge Seeks Answers In Possible Security Lapse


Two months after Judge Julie Kocurek was injured in a shooting in her driveway, the judge made her entrance back into the Blackwell-Thurman Criminal Justice Center. Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg says Kocurek is in “good spirits and deserves answers.”

On Thursday, Kocurek, along with several other judges, met with Travis County Sheriff Greg Hamilton and Lehmberg to discuss security concerns and how the departments assessed the threat made against a Travis County judge.
