Texas specific question:

I am researching a case in which the ADA recused himself from the specific case in 2014, citing conflict of interest due to personal knowledge of and interactions with the accused. However, this same ADA has been in the courtroom and interacting with the pro tem ADA throughout the entire case. I am looking for the specific Texas Statutes that govern recusal of a prosecutor and limitations of their involvement after recusal.

Why your interest?

Rule 1.6 of the Professional Code is conflict of interest.

Here is a link to Texas Government Code 411.0255 on recusal:

The amount of permittable subsequent involvement in a case by the recused prosecutor depends in large part on the reason or reasons for the prosecutor requesting recusal.
