Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer Represents Youth Charged In Death of Police Sergeant’s Mother

Houston Attorney Cory Roth is currently representing the defendant in a high-profile homicide case. Trenton Bevel, 18, is charged with murder in the death of 75-year-old, Gloria Collins, mother of a Houston police sergeant.

Houston TX: Houston criminal defense lawyer Cory Roth is pleased to announce that he will provide a defense for 18-year-old Trenton Bevel. The high-profile murder case involves Bevel, who is charged with crashing a hijacked automobile into the vehicle of 75-year-old Gloria Collins, who was stopped at a traffic light, killing her. Gloria Collins is the mother of Houston Police Sergeant Collins. The incident is the impetus for changing protocols for the Houston police department. There are local and nationwide calls for immediate local, statewide, and national bans on police pursuits of high-powered street legal race cars such as the 800-horsepower Dodge SRT Hellcat involved in this case.”

According to Houston Police Chief Troy Finner, officers tracked and located the car which reportedly had been carjacked earlier. Police attempted to arrest the two suspects seen in the vehicle, but the suspects drove to MLK Boulevard and Van Fleet Street, where the crash occurred.

As a result of the incident, the Houston Police Department now requires supervisors to approve

all pursuits. Under the new policy, Houston police may no longer chase drivers suspected of

Class C offenses have been the leading cause of police pursuits in Houston in the past five years. Attorney Roth says that more action is needed and that more police pursuits must be banned.

“We are calling for bans on chases by police vehicles of the street-legal race vehicles that reach 0-60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds and achieve a top speed of 200 mph.

Defense attorney Cory Roth stated, “This case is going to be about finding the balance between justice and mercy. Mr. Bevel and his family are heartbroken about this tragedy and they are praying for Ms. Collins and all those who loved her, especially her son, Sgt. Collins. My client and his family are determined to turn this terrible tragedy for both families and the Houston community at large into positive change.”

“There are smarter and safer ways to detain suspects,” Roth explained, “when police already believe them to be dangerous and they are driving what are essentially high horsepower roadway rocket ships.”
