If, in fact, the cell phone data referenced in the Alex Jones case was supplied to the prosecution by mistake, and Jones was to be subsequently charged and convicted for perjury, does Jones have legal recourse to hold his defense attorneys liable for their error? According to Fort Worth, Texas-based law firm Varghese Summersett PLLC, there are two types of perjury: perjury, or lying under oath, and aggravated perjury, meaning any false statement given under oath that could directly affect the outcome of the case.

As L.A. defense attorney Joshua Ritter explains, if Jones’ legal team was, in fact, negligent in those text leaks, Jones could have recourse. Speaking exclusively with Grunge, Ritter said, “[H]e could pursue a legal malpractice claim against them. But only if they proved to be actually negligent or intentionally misrepresented him.” Also, according to Varghese Summersett PLLC, perjury in Texas is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in the county jail and a $4,000 fine. Aggravated perjury on the other hand is a third-degree felony under federal law, punishable by at least two years in prison or as much as 10 years in jail with a $10,000 fine.
