TX: Iowa Park city council turns down father’s plea for sex offender exemption

An Iowa Park man was turned down after asking the City Council on Monday night to consider an exemption to the code of ordinances.

After recently writing a letter to the city of Iowa Park, James H. Pappas stood in front of the City Council and requested an exemption for his son, ___ ____, who is in his 60s and was convicted of having child pornography in Duluth, Minnesota.

However, the City Council denied the exemption based on Texas state law. Councilwoman Sherrie Williams said, “We’d have to void the ordinance entirely, and we’re not going to do that.”

In Pappas’ letter to the city, he wrote that he is 83, his wife is 81 and they needed their son to move in and take care of them. Full Article

May there be a Janice clone emerge to the fore front in Texas, to start tearing down these strongholds that are being maintained by these wolves in sheep clothing.

Mr.Pappas , I would write to the city council and tell them they are liable to your well being in the denial of in home care and civil rights violations in putting your son in double jeopardy.
Contact texas ACLU and any similar help there.
Liberty freedom restraint demands them taking your son to court , due process,
They won’t ….They can’t…..
Its double jeopardy.
Let’s Go ..! texas.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
