Javier Ambler’s Family and Attorneys praise Texas House Passage of bill banning reality TV contracts with police

Posted on: April 19th, 2021 by Romanucci & Blandin

 Two former Williamson County, Texas, deputies face manslaughter charges for death of a Black man filmed for reality TV show

AUSTIN, TEXAS (April 17, 2021) – Javier Ambler’s attorneys and parents praised the Texas House of Representatives passage of bill that banning reality television shows from contracting with state and local law enforcement passed in the Texas House 110-34 on April 15. The bill was sponsored by State Rep. James Talarico (D-Round Rock) in response to the in-custody death of Javier Ambler, whose encounter with Williamson County deputies was captured by cameras for the show ‘Live PD’ in March 2019.

Attorneys for the Ambler family state: “We agree entirely with Representative Talarico. Policing is not and never should have been treated as entertainment.  That it was by Williamson County is indefensible. While we will prove our case in court, the Ambler family is very pleased that the Texas House has passed this bill.  If the Senate does the same, it will help stop the senseless killing of unarmed Black people like Javier Ambler and inevitably lead other states to pass similar legislation.”

The office of Edwards Law represents parents Javier Ambler, Sr. and Maritza Ambler and J.R.A., a minor child.  Ben Crump Law and Romanucci & Blandin, LLC represent Michele Beitia, mother of J.A.A., minor child.
