MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

A Twin Peaks defendant has filed a motion to disqualify the McLennan County District Attorney's office from prosecuting the Twin Peaks cases.

Attorney Paul Looney, who is representing Cody Ledbetter who was at Twin Peaks on May 17, 2015, filed a motion on Thursday based on "illegal and outrageous government conduct."

According to Looney, there were photos and videos of Ledbetter and his wife engaging in consensual activity on Ledbetter's cell phone that only the two of them were to see. After his arrest, the cell phone was searched and the images were copied and inspected by law enforcement. Looney said the images were then copied over 150 times and distributed to counsel and staff for each of the Twin Peaks Defendants as part of discovery.

“The District Attorney and his assistants have committed numerous crimes against Mr. Ledbetter and his wife by knowingly revealing these intimate images on his telephone without any legal excuse,” Looney said.  

Central Texas News Now reached out to the District Attorney's Office for comment but have not received one.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
