Houston P. A. hosted by Laurent

Houston P.A. is a weekly program of conversation hosted by Laurent Fouilloud-Buyat (just call him Laurent, pronounced low-ront). Each week, Laurent invites you to meet the people who make Houston unique: the museum curators, scientists, writers, dancers, musicians, civil servants, the neighbor who used to be an alcoholic but is now in recovery, and the one who has donated two gallons of blood in his lifetime ... they're on Houston Public Affairs, the show about the people of Houston....

Katya Dow is the legal program director for the Juvenile and Capital Advocacy Project. She is also a legal practice law professor at the University of Houston Law Center. Two of her students are with her: Tressa Surratt and Lizzie Lawrie.
The Juvenile Records Sealing Project helps individuals with juvenile records to expunge those records. (We are not talking about violent crimes, here.) This is a long process that really needs a lawyer’s experience to get through and Katya discusses how they’re making this happen for more and more Houstonians by tapping into the University of Houston’s renewable pool of talent! Tressa and Lizzie talk about their first experiences in court and with their young clients.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
