Ruelas Ordered Not To Talk To Media

Jacobo not doing a very good job at being his own attorney, trying to turn the court into a circus.

Prosecutor Ann Hill requested a permanent order Wednesday, a day after The Herald published a report detailing jailhouse interviews with Ruelas, who is representing himself in court.

Hill declined to be interviewed for The Herald’s report but said that while one or more of the witnesses are receiving financial support as part of the witness relocation program, none is being paid for their testimony.

In her motion, Hill said Ruelas violated the rules of conduct for attorneys by discussing the facts of the case. She asked Judge Timothy Roberts to permanently restrain the defendant and reconsider his decision to allow Ruelas to act as his own attorney.
