Description: Script from the WBAP-TV/NBC station in Fort Worth, Texas, covering a news story about about Billie Sol Estes in court before Federal Judge Sarah T. Hughes for violation of conditions of a bond, namely traveling beyond his 100-county limit within Texas; Forfeiting his $10,000 bond and being briefly jailed and denied the chance to go out to lunch with his lawyers, an afternoon session returned $9,000 of the original bond, set a new bond, gave him permission to travel freely within Texas, and granted him 1 three-day trip to New Mexico. Estes had been on limited travel as part of an indictment for making false statements to the Commodity Credit Corporation, and U.S. Attorney Barefoot Sanders stated Estes adopted a "cavalier attitude" towards the court, and should be treated like anyone else, with no special privileges.
