Attorney for Dewhurst Niece Slams Attention on Shoplifting Arrest

The attorney for the niece of Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst is calling the attention surrounding his client and her shoplifting arrest a "miscarriage of justice."

Allen police arrested Ellen Bevers on Aug. 3 on suspicion of shoplifting. Her uncle's call to dispatch asking for help in getting her out of jail has made national headlines.

According to a police report, Bevers tried to leave a Kroger grocery store in Allen with $50.23 of merchandise that she had not purchased. The items included household cleaning products, lightbulbs and shampoo.

Her attorney, Todd Shapiro, said his client is mortified, saying the incident was a simple mix-up at a self-checkout station. He said Bevers offered to pay for the items, but was turned over to Allen police.

1. Yep, she could have resolved this with no media attention if Uncle David hadn't

stuck his nose in. Bet the family member that asked him to help is regretting it now.
