BROWN COUNTY, Texas - The Declaration of Independence was read in front of the Brown County Courthouse on Friday.

Brownwood members of the criminal defense bar took turns reading the document starting at 10 a.m.

Brown County Judge Ray West kicked off the reading.

Attorney Todd Steele first organized this last year and he hopes to continue the tradition into the future.

The Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer's Association began this effort in Houston and it has now gone statewide, according to Steele.
