Nehemiah Griego case turned over to third judge after another recusal


The Nehemiah Griego case is now on its third judge after another recused herself less than 24 hours after being assigned to the case.

On Thursday, second Judicial District court Judge Cindy Leos was given the case, tasked with deciding whether the teen who killed his parents and three siblings was rehabilitated enough for release.

However, she recused herself almost immediately.

The case is now in the hands of Judge Alisa Hart.

Griego’s original amenability hearing was with Judge John Romero but he recused himself during the days-long hearing after he was seen talking to a witness outside of the courtroom.
