Q&A: The eyes of Texas are upon you

Q&A (2015-16)Allan BlutsteinComment

Q.  I submitted a FOIA form to view a police dash-cam video regarding a traffic citation [in Texas].  I was told that I cannot see the video unless I plead guilty and pay the fine or if I go to trial.   Is this accurate?

A.  I suggest that you contact the Texas Attorney General's office in order to receive the most complete and accurate answer to your question.  The following opinion letter from that office concerning dash-cam video might also be instructive.
