Another Life Saved!

Dear Supporters,
We have news to share: Our client, Kyle Phillips, is no longer facing the death penalty. Mr. Phillips was arrested in 2020 in Bexar County in connection with a robbery and murder. 
Our mitigation specialists investigated Mr. Phillips’s case and shared his life story with the District Attorney.
And on February 8, the District Attorney dismissed the capital charges against Mr. Phillips. Mr. Phillips’s case is ongoing – he faces a motion to revoke his probation on an unrelated charge – and we remain involved in his defense.
But for now, we are relieved. We are relieved that the District Attorney listened to Mr. Phillips’s story. And we are relieved that he is no longer facing a death sentence.

With gratitude,

Burke Butler
Executive Director
Texas Defender Service
