If true, this absolutely sickens me.This individual was assigned to one of the most critical positions in the Criminal Justice system. When I was an Investigator, we depended on these folks being as forthright and reliable as anyone in the chain. Were there no warning signs? How extensive is the Galveston County background and reference process? I know that there are bad actors in virtually every profession but, this guy is in the "correctional" business! What a shame for all of those good people in similar positions and for those offenders who are trying to get their lives back together.

I don't mean to make light of a horrible situation but dang this boy has just about as many assault charges complaints against him as Donald tRump!
