Judge admonishes Stern's lawyers for holding press conference Houston Chronicle Copyright 2012 Houston Chronicle. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 11:53 a.m., Thursday, June 14, 2012 Nugent is one of several attorneys representing Stern, who is charged with solicitation of capital murder, accused of masterminding three unsuccessful attempts on his wife's life. Nugent said the Harris County District Attorney's office has not charged anyone in connection with the letter, so he alerted the media to ward off would-be attackers. Bradley said she was frustrated because Stern's attorneys talk to reporters when they want, then complain to her about media coverage. Stern, who acknowledges having had an affair with Gaiser but denies plotting with her to have his wife killed, is facing trial on two charges of solicitation of capital murder.
