Harris County Juvenile Court Judge Glenn Devlin lost his re-election bid to Natalia Oakes as Democrats swept the county's juvenile judicial offices.
Prosecutors in court voiced their concerns about their seemingly indiscriminate release, with some those facing charges having been accused of violent crimes such as aggravated burglary. At least four of the minors faced serious charges.
A Texas judge reportedly released almost all of his juvenile defendants after losing his re-election on Tuesday, but not before asking if they planned to kill anyone.
Judge Devlin was not at work on Thursday.
United States proposes banning asylum through southern border
The new rule comes as a so-called caravan of migrants from Central America travels north by foot through Mexico to the US border. US Army troops enter a compound where the military is erecting an encampment near the US-Mexico border crossing at Donna, Texas.
Halpert, a Democrat, said Devlin, a Republican, is known to be diligent and thorough - usually running a tight docket.
Public defender Steve Halpert quoted Devlin as saying, "This is obviously what the voters wanted", and opined that Devlin, a Republican, meant to imply that Democratic judges are more lenient with accused criminals. Halpert said he heard the judge say the easier-than-normal releases today were "what the voters wanted".
"This could endanger the public", Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a written statement.
Devlin did not respond to ABC News' request for comment. He said the court is the first of its kind in Texas and only the second in the U.S.
Paul Pogba welcomes Manchester United underdogs tag
Lukaku's injury means he is a doubt for Sunday's trip to Manchester City, so Sanchez might get another outing at the Etihad. He added: "I think it's always good to be the outsider, so people expect bad of us and then we surprise people".
Law says that youth defendants are entitled to a detention hearing every 10 days, the Chronicle reported.
Devlin was elected to Houston's 313th district court in 2010, according to the court's website. He had earned a reputation as a judge who favors incarceration-the number of kids sent to juvenile detention doubled in recent years, despite falling elsewhere in Texas, according to The Chronicle. Once the defendants answered "no", Devlin released them.
Harris County Chief Public Defender Alex Bunin told the newspaper that he could not wrap his "arms around what [Devlin's] actually doing", adding, "It's a huge change and the only thing that has happened is that he was not elected so I don't know what to attribute it to", Bunin said.
