After losing his bench in a Democratic sweep, Harris County Juvenile Court Judge Glenn Devlin released nearly all of the youthful defendants that appeared in front him on Wednesday morning, simply asking the kids whether they planned to kill anyone before letting them go.

Seven women and five men were officially selected Wednesday to sit as jurors on the upcoming case of notorious Sinaloa cartel head Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman — reducing one of them to tears.
