Gregg justice of the peace still in hospital, unable to walk after shooting
Longview — A Gregg County judge remained hospitalized Tuesday, unable to walk almost two weeks after police say his wife shot him in the back.
“My father is starting to get the light back in his eyes, and we are hopeful he will walk again and return to his old normal life,” Debbie Drayden said of Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Sam Lawson.
Lawson was found March 9 at his South Longview home suffering from three gunshot wounds.
Investigators charged Lawson’s wife, Ina, with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and family violence in connection with the shooting.
Drayden said her father will be moved to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas, where he will continue to recover from his wounds and begin physical therapy.
