Houston Accuses Christian Of Manipulating The Legal System

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says a headline-grabbing reporter and blogger is trying to game the system to make life difficult for city officials… and avoid accountability for his own actions. 


Houston’s comments come after the latest lawsuit filed against the city by Calvin Christian.  It’s one of several pending lawsuits, including one in which Christian claims a pattern of harassment against him by Springfield police. 


Houston accuses Christian of racking up citations and then getting the charges dropped because he insists on a jury trial, which the state’s attorney’s office didn’t want to go through that process.  However, Houston says that technique most likely won’t work in the future for Christian, suggesting he may face trials on multiple citations for driving without a valid license.
