Suspects in Bridge City attorney's kidnapping decline comment at jail

Jim Sharon Bearden Jr. was taken from his home last Monday, May 8, when he was awakened by two masked intruders.

Three suspects accused in the recent kidnapping of a local attorney were taken to the Orange County Jail on Tuesday morning, but they declined to comment when asked a series of questions about the incident.

All three suspects are immigrants from Honduras living in the United States illegally, according to Orange County Sheriff's officials.

They're accused in the May 8 kidnapping Jim Sharon Bearden Jr., who spoke publicly about the incident for the first time Monday, exclusively with KFDM/6 News on Fox.

KFDM's Ashley DeVriend was there this morning reporting live outside the jail.

6 News has obtained the probable cause affidavit in the arrests.
