Tejano Star’s Drug Rape Trial Starts
Posted by Childress on August 29, 2006
Joe Lopez is a superstar, one of the most popular stars of the Tejano music that’s so popular along the Texas/Mexico border.
He’s also an alleged child rapist.
Lopez is charged with three counts of aggrevated sexual assault, one count of indency with a minor, and one count of providing GHB, Ketamine or rohypnal to her.
On the first day of his trial, Lopoez fired his attorneys — a classic delay tactic — and the trial was suspended until new attorneys can be found. He’s in jail for now, but with jail set at a low $25,000, this is one singer who may be somewhere over the rainbow soon.
