Aryan Brotherhood

Assistant U.S. Jay Hileman filed a notice to withdraw from a case prosecuting a gang of white supremacists for racketeering and murder.  In his withdrawal he cites “Security” as the issue; two state prosecutors were killed in their homes in the past two weeks in Texas.

Thirty-four Aryan Brotherhood of Texas members were indicted in Houston in November for crimes including, drug distribution, racketeering and kidnapping.  A large number of the members potentially faced the death penalty.  

Records show Kaufman county prosecutors assisted in the investigation. 

Linked to the case is Nick Morale arrested on Wednesday by the Kaufman County Sherriff’s Office, for making terroristic threats against county officials.  Morale is being held on a $1 million bond.  According to authorities there is no evidence linking Moral to the murders of the Kaufman County Prosecutors.

Police have not linked the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas with the prosecution killings and are also checking leads that point to Mexican drug cartels and local traffickers.
