[abc13.com – 3/20/19]

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A convicted sex offender had apparently worked for a newly-elected Harris County judge’s campaign, but wasn’t detected until he was handcuffed in a court room.

______, 36, appeared for an arraignment Wednesday, accused of failing to alert Houston Community College of his sex offender status while enrolled there.

Deputies took ______ into custody while working for Harris County 270th Civil Court Judge Dedra Davis.

Harris County has no record of ______ as an employee, and neither does the district court administrator. If they did, he’d would have undergone a background check before being hired.

However, ABC13 Eyewitness News confirmed that ______ was on the judge’s team, from both people with knowledge of the situation and from the judge’s own Facebook page, which displays photographs of ______ both inside and outside the courthouse representing her office. She refers to him as part of the team.

There is two other shocking stories at that abc13 link. Both very sad and not good for our cause.

“accused of failing to alert Houston Community College of his sex offender status while enrolled there. ”

Is this some sort of new law? Usually you would report your student status while registering, not to the school.

Clearly the purpose of SOR websites are to notify the public. Compelling registrants to notify school official per enrollment repeats SOR’s intent and is therefore duplicitous, like IML. Repetition and duplicity are hallmarks of uncontrolled bureaucracy growth.

Does anyone know any updates with the lawsuit against Texas for not honoring plea deals?
