A Montgomery County judge ordered former NFL player Kevin Ware Jr. to be held without bail for breaching terms of a previous bond in cases unrelated to the disappearance of his girlfriend, Taylor Pomaski.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigators did not name Ware a suspect in the Pomaski case.
In their motion to have Ware’s bail revoked or raised to $ 3 million, Montgomery County prosecutors wrote that he was a suspect in a murder investigation related to Pomaski’s disappearance.

Six of these bills were passed. Do not mistake yourself. We’re not saying all HOAs are bad; but these new laws offer homeowners some protections when their HOA is too large.
