Waco Attorneys Arrested in Murder for Hire Plot

Two Waco lawyers were arrested Friday on charges that they plotted to killed the woman's ex-husband, who had been arrested earlier this year on child molestation allegations.

Waco police arrested Seth Andrew Sutton, 45, and Chelsea Tijerina, 33, each on a first-degree felony charge of conspiracy to commit capital murder. The alleged scheme indicated Sutton paid an undercover Waco police officer to buy a gun to kill Tijerina's former husband, Marcus Beaudin, a fellow Waco defense attorney.

According to arrest affidavits, Sutton solicited an undercover officer on May 14 to kill Beaudin and the two exchanged ideas about the plot. Sutton allegedly told the officer he would give him $300 to buy a gun and said he would help the officer leave town after committing the murder.

Beaudin, 37, was arrested in February on a felony charge of indecency with a child. Woodway police accused Beaudin of sexually touching a 10-year-old family member in December. He has not been indicted by a grand jury for the crime and Beaudin's attorney Josh Tetens has said Beaudin denies the claims.

After the initial meeting between Sutton and the undercover officer, Waco police enlisted the help of the Texas Rangers on May 20. The next day, Sutton and Tijerina met with the undercover Waco officer to plan the hit, the affidavit states.

Tijerina allegedly provided details about Beaudin's whereabouts and how to carry out the murder.

"Chelsea Tijerina (Beaudin) and Sutton provided a timeline for the murder as well as establishing alibis for Chelsea Tijerina (Beaudin) and Sutton," the affidavit states. "On May 22, Sutton met (with the undercover officer) an provided (the officer) with $300 to purchase a firearm to be used to murder Marcus Beaudin."

The alleged plot was to be carried out at Beaudin's home, the affidavit states.

Sutton participated in a Zoom court hearing with a client Friday in 54th State District Court, officials said.

Waco police arrested Sutton near Bosque Boulevard and New Road on Friday evening, jail records state. Tijerina was arrested at her Waco home Friday night by Waco police.

State District Judge Matt Johnson, who signed the arrest warrants for both Sutton and Tijerina, set bonds at $1 million each.

Seth is a friend of mine.  Whole situation is fucked up.

I can not wrap my head around this whole deal.

Scott, he has a lot of friends, and some are wondering if his defense of at least one of the Twin Peaks bikers is leading to a little Texas law retribution. But he could also be guilty of the accusation. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Normally these cases involve pretty solid wiretaps, audio, etc.

 

I’m interested to see who made the introduction between them and the UC cop.

 

Seth was also president of a motorcycle club, which obviously makes one wonder.

They’re both Baylor Law grads. They’ll probably get a slap on the wrist and she’ll get a slap on the ass. Just ask Walter Smith Jr.

Unless everything Hollywood has taught me is wrong, how on earth would anyone, especially a criminal defense lawyer, think the going rate for a real hit man is, “Just reimburse me the $300.00 I need to buy a gun from Academy, and we will call it good.”

I'm guessing it was a manufactured allegation from good ol' Chels.

I suspect there might have been a custody dispute brewing over her substance abuse, so being a drug-addled crazy bitch, she had to come up with a bunker buster.

It's sad that in this country you can be arrested for a completely fabricated allegation

I sent Seth some cases over the past few years. 
 

I knew he was a zealous advocate but this is a level of service I did not expect!

 

in all seriousness I would like to see the PCs  Solicitation to commit capital murder is a heavy charge...

I have so many questions.  So the Waco 6 made Lawyer Fuckboi to hire a hit man to kill her ex because he touches kids?

or was the molesty dad just false allegations from Waco 6? 
 

And fuckboi was involved in the Waco biker gang trial?

The fact that it hadn't been before a grand jury was an indicator.  I'm sure ol' Chels manipulated the victim, maybe some other child witnesses and/or family members.

Bio

Seth Andrew Sutton is an entertainer by nature. He spent several years in New York City after college performing in bands and pursuing a musical theater career. His transition into practicing law has been incredibly smooth and natural.

"I love trial," explains Sutton. "Being half performer and half sports fan...trial is like competitive theater. There's nothing better!" he jokes. "But in all seriousness, my vast experience of breaking down scripts and finding the truth and the emotion have proved to be excellent preparation for defending my clients. The story of the case is my script and the jury is my audience. I connect with them and I don't miss the 'moments'." And the results have shown.

Ok, that’s different.

That surprises me a bit for the sort of common or garden crime that wasn't witnessed by LEO but is at the arrest stage.  But, because I don't practice criminal law, something I wouldn't know.

They should have just raped the guy instead of trying to kill him. Rape isn't a crime in Waco 

Neither is murder if you're LEO

Waco sure is a den of sin. Guess a church on every corner doesn’t get you very far into grace. 

Well at least they got Pappadeauxs. What's that? Its been 5 years and still no Pappadeauxs? Poor bastards can't catch a break.

Man, it’s really bad luck this guy never broke down a script of literally any of the thousands of crime procedural shows that have been on TV the last 40 years.  West Side Story just doesn’t tell you how much hit men charge or why someone wants you to talk into the wire.

If we could get Chip sand Joanna involved in this the coverage would rival the OJ trial.
