The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton will appear in court today for the first time since he was booked earlier this month on felony charges of securities fraud.

Also, the Dallas school board will discuss interim superintendent Michael Hinojosa’s performance in a closed session tonight. The discussion could determine the direction of the district’s superintendent search.

How well can the law dictate human behavior, especially in the bedroom? A human rights lawyer weighs in.

And finally, Owen Wilson is known more for comedy, but he takes a different turn in his new film, “No Escape.” Our Big Screen team weighs in on whether that transition was successful.

You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.

Former KERA staffer Krystina Martinez was an assistant producer. She produced local content for Morning Edition and KERANews.org. She also produced The Friday Conversation, a weekly series of conversations with North Texas newsmakers. Krystina was also the backup newscaster for the Texas Standard.
