A major turn of events Thursday morning in the Mineola child sex ring case.
According to the judicial records on the 14th Court of Appeals website, the court has reversed the conviction of Patrick Kelly and Jamie Pittman.
Kelly and Pittman had been sentenced to life in prison for aggravated sexual assault of a child.
The court based its decision on sufficient evidence, errors by the trial court and an improper closing argument by the state.
The pair will be retried. No date has been set.
KETK will bring you more information as it becomes available.
