Over 180 criminal cases dismissed in El Paso referral court

EL PASO, Texas -- Over 180 criminal cases were dismissed Friday morning in an El Paso referral court.

Since August, hundreds of cases have been dismissed after the District Attorney’s office didn't indict them within the outlined time.

The cases that were dismissed Friday range in charges including online solicitation of a minor, criminal trespass, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, stalking, etc.

The public defender, Kelli Childress, told ABC-7 said Friday's cases were "nothing unexpected."

Childress said a couple hundred more cases are pending.
