A well-known figure at the Harris County courthouse has been charged, along with a Texas lawyer, in a barratry case.

The Rev. Johnny Jeremiah, a community activist also known as Johnny Binder, is accused of soliciting clients for attorney Tiffany Mooney and fee-splitting, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"Defendants are entitled to an attorney of their choice, and not be pressured," said Assistant Harris County District Attorney Wendy Baker. "They have a right to be free of solicitation at the courthouse."
