State Rests Case In Coleman Trial

Just one day into witness testimony, the state has rested its case in the Lubbock trial of Tom Coleman.

Members of Tulia 46 Come to Lubbock for Coleman Trial
A number of those who were put in jail based on Tom Coleman's testimony will make the trip to Lubbock all week to watch his trial's outcome.

He is the discredited lawman who was at the center of the Tulia drug convictions that were overturned. The state called less than a dozen witnesses to testify about Coleman's use of Cochran County gas cards. Several testified that gas records showed that Coleman may have used gas to fill up his personal truck. This testimony is crucial to the state's case because they are trying to prove Coleman lied about his theft charges during a 2003 evidentiary hearing involving Tulia defendants.

The trial will resume in the morning at the Lubbock County Courthouse.
