Defense teams for MCS administrators discuss months since arrests

MIDLAND, Texas — Barry Russell, Gregory McClendon, Matthew Counts, Jared Lee and Dana Ellis were all arrested two months ago and charged with failing to report harm to a child and intent to conceal. It has been two months, but their cases still haven’t gone before a grand jury.
In the meantime, the defense teams haven’t been able to do much other than wait because they had been waiting for a report to be submitted to the District Attorney’s office.
