Judge Jack Robison appears to be channeling a higher authority recently in Comal County, Texas. Robison interrupted jurors during deliberations to inform the panel that God told him to acquit Gloria Romero-Perez of trafficking a teenage girl for sex. It appears that divine judgment did not track well with the jury, which proceeded to find Perez guilty as charged.
Perez was accused of paying $6,000 (£4,300) to smuggle ta 15-year-old girl to the US from Honduras. She then received money from an older man who had sex with the girl and had a child by her.
