1 The Police News VOLUME VIII, NUMBER 7 County Edition July 2011 Mr. District Attorney A conversation with County District Attorney Jack Roady By Breck Porter Six months into his first term as Criminal District Attorney in County, Republican Jack Roady sat down with me recently in his first floor office in the County Criminal Justice Center where we discussed his accomplishments and disappointments since becoming the chief law enforcement officer of the county. Question: You campaigned on a program of achieving higher convictions rates and fewer dismissals if elected. What progress has been made in that regard so far? ROADY: The idea of higher conviction rates and fewer dismissals is, in my view, not a goal, but a measurement of how the office is performing and how the prosecutors are doing. That's something that I plan on measuring. I haven't measured it in the first six months because it will take awhile for my vision of the office to percolate through the ranks and for my staff to become comfortable in the way they try their cases. I think that my vision of the office will produce those as we go by. When I was looking at past measurements I did it over the course of several years and that's something that you really have to look at on the big scale. My goal for this office is to have prosecutors who have all the training they need, the tools they need to try their cases, have good mentors in the office, and have the freedom to do what they believe to be right. I want them to be out there trying cases they believe in and do the right thing. If they really believe in a case and think it needs to be tried then I want them to have the freedom to go ahead and try that case. If it ends up being a 'not guilty' we'll come back, after the fact, and look at what happened in that case that it ended up being a 'not guilty' and we'll use that as a teaching experience. Sometimes you have to try a case. If you really believe in it and the admissible evidence may not be as strong as you would like it to be, but you believe that case needs to be tried and that a jury needs to hear that case, then that's what they need to do. So, I will measure dismissal rates and conviction rates down the road, but that's not what I'm shooting for. Having a staff that knows that I'm supporting them, knows that I'm going to back them up on the decisions they make, that knows that another one of my goals is working with law enforcement to make sure we have a great working relationship, that we're giving them all the tools they need and all the feedback they need for their investigations so they will be able to do their jobs better and to bring better cases to this office. And so, down the road I believe that is going to produce better conviction rates and fewer dismissals. But that's really going to be a by-product of the way that I am managing the office. Question: Another thing you said during your campaign was: "I will provide more training for prosecutors and handson field work with police officers". ROADY: Our experienced prosecutors have a lot of time out visiting crime scenes and spending time with law enforcement in the field and they know how police officers conduct their investigations. But our new prosecutors, especially our misdemeanor prosecutors, who are just coming into the practice out of law school, have no idea of how street law enforcement works and what police officers have to deal with on a daily basis. So we're working on programs to get them out in the field with police officers, and do ride-alongs with them. Our goal there is to give our young prosecutors more than book knowledge, and to give them a practical understanding of what's involved in a law enforcement investigation. That will make them better prosecutors and help them understand the evidence involved in a case and the collection of evidence involved in a case. Question: How many prosecutors do you presently have in your office? ROADY: We have a total of 40. We have three misdemeanor courts for which we provide eight prosecutors. We have five felony courts with three prosecutors each. Then we have division chiefs and specialized prosecutors which make a total of 40. Question: One of the things you mentioned during your campaign also was the high employee turn-over which I believe you said was about thirty percent versus the statewide average of fifteen percent or twice the state rate. How does that stand so-far in the Roady administration? ROADY: So far it's good. But again, that's a measure that has to be taken over the course of several years, and that will play out. I think what's behind that is making this an office where prosecutors feel like they can do the right things for District Attorney Jack Roady the right reasons and feel like they're going to be supported by their boss. People don't get into prosecution for the money just like cops don't get into law enforcement for the money. When an attorney becomes a prosecutor he gives up a lot of income potential, but you get to be the person whose job it is to do justice. And that is an awesome, awesome, responsibility. And its benefit is you get to go to work everyday and your job is to do the right thing. And so I believe, based on my experience in other prosecutor's offices, people will stay in an office and continue to work as prosecutors if they feel fulfilled in their job and supported by their boss, and that's the environment I want to create for them here. I think that over time, that will produce results in terms of people staying. Question:After your first six months in office, what are some of the things you have accomplished that you are most proud of? ROADY: When I came in I did not make any staff changes. I brought in J.J. Freeze as Chief Investigator and he filled a position in the investigative ranks that was already open. I didn't let any of the prosecutors go. My belief is that everyone starts out on a level playing field and my job, starting with my first day in office, is to evaluate everybody to see how they're doing and if they're in the right place in the office.

First of all, I'm real proud to have been able to bring in J.J. Freeze, because I think he's phenomenal in what he does. He has great integrity and I'm so glad to have him here. I brought in a new Asset Forfeiture Prosecutor who is a very experienced civil litigator who shares my vision of supporting law enforcement in going after criminals and seizing contraband that they either use in criminal activity or they have gained as a result of their criminal activity. I think the law enforcement agencies have been glad to see a much more aggressive approach in terms of asset forfeiture. I'm happy with the fact that the Sheriff and the county administration have all come together and I've been able to take a much more aggressive approach in prosecuting illegal gambling activity in the county, particularly the game rooms that are operating illegally. That has been a joint venture and it's been great to have everybody, the Sheriff, the County Judge and the Commissioners all on the same page and willing to make a concerted effort to do what we can to get illegal gambling out of the county. We have tried the first death penalty case in this county since 1995, the Travis Mullis case. (January 2008 for stomping his 3-month old son to death) We had great prosecutors on that case. Donna Cameron and Kayla Allen did a phenomenal job. We brought in a special prosecutor to assist because it had been so long since a death penalty case had been tried in this county. We got a just result in that case and I was very proud of the work the trail prosecutors did in that case. Since that time, there are other capital murder charges pending in the county and I have recently made the decision to seek the death penalty in another case, Bernard Cunningham. (January 2010 shot and killed his pregnant girlfriend in front of her 10-year old daughter.) He is charged with capital murder in Hitchcock, with killing a young lady who was six months pregnant with child. And he's charged with murdering both of them. That case has not been set for trial yet, it's in its early stages. I've given a lot of effort towards building a good relationship with law enforcement agencies in the county, the officers and the chiefs, to make sure that our office is responsive to what's going on in their communities so that if they have needs, we are ready to work with them to address that, that our prosecutors are working well with their police officers so that we have a good working relationship to assist in their investigations so when we're ready to take cases to trial their officers are ready to assist us so we can finish the job well that they started.

A witness saw Sauceda, apparently intoxicated and partially undressed, in the middle of a circle of men who were taking turns on top of her. An unidentified man invited him to have intercourse Humberto Leal, Jr. with Sauceda. The same witness testified that he later observed another man carrying a disoriented Sauceda to a truck, where he had his way with her. Twenty-three-year-old Humberto Leal, Jr. was also at the party. At some point the intoxicated but conscious victim was placed in Leal s car and he and the victim left together. About thirty minutes later, Leal s brother arrived at the party in a car which came to a screeching halt. The brother was very excited or hysterical and started yelling to the people left at the party, What the hell happened! Leal s brother was yelling that Leal came home with blood on him saying he had killed a girl. Witnesses Torres and Ortega were present when Leal s brother made these statements. Shortly thereafter the brother left in a rush. Several of the party members went looking for the girl in the same area where the party was. They found her nude body lying face-up on a dirt road and noticed her head had been bashed in and it was bleeding. Her head was flinching or jerking. These party members called the police. When the police arrived, they saw the nude Sauceda lying on her back. There was a 30 to 40 pound asphalt rock roughly twice the size of her skull lying partially on her left arm. Blood was underneath it. A smaller rock with blood on it was near her right thigh. There was a gaping hole from the corner of Sauceda s right eye extending to the center of her head from which blood was oozing. Her head was splattered with blood. There was a bloody and broken stick approximately 14 to 16 inches long with a screw at the end of it protruding from Sauced s vagina. Another 4 to 5 inch piece of the stick was lying to the left side of her skull. The police made a videotape of the crime scene, portions of which were admitted into evidence during trial. Later that day, the police questioned Leal. He gave two voluntary statements. In his first statement Leal said he was with Sauceda in his car when she began hitting him and the steering wheel causing him to hit a curb. Leal said he attempted to calm her down but she leaped from the car and ran away. He claimed he sat in his car and waited about ten or fifteen minutes to see if she would return and when she did not he went home. After giving this statement, Leal was informed that his brother had also given a statement then he gave another statement. In this statement Leal claimed he followed the girl when she got out of his car and ran away and she attacked him. He said he pushed her and she fell to the ground. When she did not get up he tried to wake her but could not. He then looked at her nose and saw bubbles. Leal said he got scared, went home, prayed on the side of his mom s bed and told family members what had happened, claiming it was just an accident. After giving this statement an officer gave him a ride home. The police searched Leal s house and seized a blouse which contained several blood stains, hair and fibers. The blouse was later identified as belonging to Sauceda. The police also seized Leal s clothing from the night before. He was arrested later that afternoon at his home. Leal s car was also impounded. The police conducted Luminol tests of the passenger door to determine whether any blood was evident. Blood stains were discovered on the passenger door and seat. Detectives said the blood stains were streaked in a downward motion, indicating the blood had been wiped off. There was insufficient residue to conduct a blood typing of the stains on the vehicle. Other DNA evidence was found on the underwear Leal was wearing that night. That evidence consisted of blood as well as bodily fluid. The DNA test did not preclude the Sauceda s blood type from the evidence tested. Dr. DiMaio, the medical examiner who performed the autopsy, said that even though Sauceda was intoxicated when she received her injuries, she would have been aware of what was happening to her. In addition to her massive head injuries, DiMaio testified about injuries she received to her chest and shoulder which were consistent with having been inflicted by the stick found in her vagina. DiMaio also testified about the defensive wounds she received to her hands trying to protect herself from some object and he said she was alive when the stick was placed in her vagina. Her neck also contained injuries consistent with manual strangulation. The Pathologist also said Sauceda received some of her injuries while San Antonio Killer..Cont. on page 9

5 An Open Letter to the Citizens of County My name is Bill Young and I am announcing my candidacy for County Sheriff. If elected, I will be a working uniformed county sheriff. I have over 30 years of law enforcement experience, over 24 of which have been in County. In my career as a peace officer, I have progressed through the ranks from patrol to detective/sergeant and have served as a captain of police. I am an honorably retired Texas peace officer. The reasons for me entering the sheriff s race are many. It started with the encouragement of several friends who are current or former members of the sheriff s office. They are concerned about the direction of your sheriff s office and the fact that they are unable to earn a living wage. Many deputies are forced to work several extra jobs to feed their families and stay above the poverty line. This is an issue of both public safety and officer safety and is totally unacceptable to me. When elected as your sheriff, one of my first acts will be to ask Commissioner s Court to confront the issue of finding the funding to pay your deputy sheriffs a living wage. I have noticed a great disparity between the lowest paid deputies and the command staff. All positions will be reviewed, some may be adjusted downward to bring others up. It is time to face the fact that we need to professionalize the sheriff s office and its delivery of service to the citizens. Before we can do this, we must professionalize the people delivering the services. As Sheriff, I will institute Civil Service. The protections of civil service will add value and job security to our employees, removing their at-will employment status. My counsel has visited with the Sheriff s Association of Texas general counsel. We were advised that ten counties in our state have these civil service protections. My promise is that County will be number eleven. This increased job security will attract and retain better qualified applicants and employees and will foster a work environment that will nurture innovative and positive change. We will add services such as a daily system to monitor registered sex offenders. We will add the best wanted fugitive investigators in the state to our agency. These officers will also double as the county SWAT team. No longer will any area of County be a safe haven for felons, sex offenders or criminal illegal aliens. This is my solemn promise to you, the citizens. My vision for the sheriff s office includes a Motorcycle Division, an enhanced K-9 Unit with the best drug dogs available, and Bill Young also available helicopters for our search and rescue needs. I will also pursue establishing a patrol sub-station and jail in north County. Our beach patrol professionals will interact with the community to give our children swim lessons and drown-proofing, We also need an integrated county-wide warrant verification system. Our Marine Division should be water available 24/ Most of these items will not require raises in county taxes as federal Homeland Security and other grants are currently available but being diverted to other counties. I will fight for your fair share of federal dollars for our county. I am also interested in instituting bestpractices programs which may include certification or recognition by groups such as CALEA, the Police Chief s Association, etc As your sheriff, I hope to meet with our county/state legislative delegation to discuss and propose laws that seem to be working well in other jurisdictions. For instance, in the State of Nevada all felons must register with the local area chief of law enforcement. This would be a great investigative tool and may encourage felons from other states not to relocate here in County. Last, but not least, I will work for the greater good of all the citizens of County. No longer will a short list of select families impose their will on the sheriff s office. Departmental meetings and roll calls will no longer look like mini-family reunions. All of our deputies will focus on police work, not politics. The deputies will adhere to our policies and treat our citizens with respect. These are some the things I will address when you honor me with your vote. Stay tuned, there is much more to come. Sincerely, William Bill Young Your Republican Candidate for Sheriff POLICENEWSLINK.COM For late breaking police news! DA...Cont. from pg 3 with the police? ROADY: We have someone on call 24 hours a day. When we have a shooting, that prosecutor will get out of bed, go down to the scene with the police officers and be there at the scene to advice on evidentiary issues and be ready to address any concerns that law enforcement has. Question: In the case of Robert Hernandez Ramos who shot and killed his father-in-law in a Texas City bar, have you announced yet as to whether you will seek the death penalty? ROADY: We are not going to seek the death penalty. Question: And in the case of Vernitta Wright in La Marque where a juvenile is accused of murdering her. Have you decided or announced if you will seek to have him declared an adult for prosecution? ROADY: We have not announced that yet. That is pending. Question: What are some disappointments you have had to face in your first six months? ROADY: It's been good. It's been real good. There are some obstacles. Our office struggles with the same budgetary restrictions that every agency in the county is dealing with. I'm not alone in wishing I had more resources available to support my folks. So what it results in is that we have to do the best we can with what's available and make sure we give the taxpayers the best bang for their buck. The most difficult area we have been working with is there are a number of pending public integrity allegations around the county. Those cases require specialized investigation and in-depth investigation and resources to do that are always stretched. That's been the biggest hurdle to overcome, giving those cases the amount of time and resources they need. (Public integrity cases are complaints against public officials who are either elected or paid employees) One of the ways we are going to be addressing that more, is with a new felony division chief, Kevin Petroff, who is coming from Harris County. He will have responsibility over our district courts and felony prosecutors. Also, he, like our First Assistant Donna Cameron, is especially trained in prosecuting public integrity cases. Having him onboard is really going to help in the investigations of those cases and moving them forward. The position of Felony Division Chief has been unfilled for the last six months. Not because it's not needed, but because it's a very important position in the office and I wanted to be sure I got just the right person to fill it. It's been a difficult six months not having that position filled but it's such an important position that you just don't got out right away and just stick anybody in there, you have to have the right candidate. Question: Who's been doing that job? Chief Investigator J.J. Freeze (L) and Jack Roady ROADY: It's been empty. Everybody has been picking up slack. Donna Cameron, my First Assistant, has been doing a phenomenal job of trying cases and supervising prosecutors and managing public integrity cases. Question: And Kayla Allen? ROADY: Kayla Allen is our child abuse/elderly abuse prosecutor but she has just demonstrated herself to be a rising star in the office. She is extremely talented and is entrusted with these cases because she is a good prosecutor. She's got the ability, she's got the ethics, and she's got the work commitment. She will be trying the case against Bernard Cunningham along with Donna Cameron. They also did the Travis Mullis case and Kayla did the Baby Grace prosecution. Question: In closing, where is the DA's office headed into the future? ROADY: My goal is to make this office 'top notch', and to keep the good prosecutors we have here, make it a place where they thrive as prosecutors and find fulfillment in doing justice. Our goal is to continue to strengthen our relationship with the police officers in the county to see they have everything they need to do their jobs well. That means we protect the citizens best. And to do the best we can with as little cost to the taxpayer as possible. Dealing with a juggler Juggler, driving to his next performance, was stopped by the police. What are those knives doing in your car? asked the officer. I juggle them in my act. Oh yeah? says the cop. Let s see you do it. So the juggler starts tossing and juggling the knives. A guy driving by sees this and says, Wow, am I glad I quit drinking. Look at the test they re making you do now! The Police News - Page 5

The new man looks at the old-timer inquiringly. The old-timer says, Look at me. I m old and worn out. You d never believe that I used to live the life of Riley. I wintered on the Riviera, had a boat, four fine cars, the most beautiful women, and I ate in all the best restaurants of France. The new man asked, What happened?

A week or so later, he received another letter from his wife: You wouldn t believe what happened. Some men came with shovels to the house, and dug up the whole back garden. The prisoner wrote another letter: Dear wife, NOW is the best time to plant the lettuce! Catching a drunk driver Two rednecks, Bubba and Earl, were driving down the road drinking a couple of bottles of Bud. The passenger, Bubba, said Lookey thar up ahead, Earl, it s a police roadblock!!

We ll just pull over and finish drinkin these beers then peel off the label and stick it on our foreheads, and throw the bottles under the seat. What fer?, asked Bubba. Just let me do the talkin, OK?, said Earl. Well, they finished their beers, threw the empties out of sight & put label on each of their foreheads. When they reached the roadblock, the sheriff said, You boys been drinkin? No, sir, said Earl while pointing at the labels. We re on the patch. Getting a ride home A police car pulls up in front of grandma Bessie s house, and grandpa Morris gets out. The polite policeman explained that this elderly gentleman said that he was lost in the park...and couldn t find his way home. Oy Morris, said grandma, You ve been going to that park for over 30 years! So how could you get lost? Leaning close to grandma, so that the policeman couldn t hear. Morris whispered, I wasn t lost...i was just too tired to walk home. Page 6 - The Police News

7 Texas DPS warns of telephone scams using its name Scammers have been calling Texans in various parts of the state, demanding that residents immediately pay for overdue red-light tickets. The most recent incident was reported in Cleveland, Texas, where police say that residents have received calls from someone claiming to represent DPS and demanding payment on a red-light safety camera ticket. The scammers say that an arrest warrant will be issued if the person receiving the call does not provide a credit card number, as well as Social Security numbers and other personal information. The Texas Department of Public Safety does not collect traffic fines or oversee red-light cameras. You should never give out personal information over the phone when someone else initiated the call, said Steven C. McCraw, director of DPS. If you receive a call like this, you should write down any contact information from the Caller ID, if available, and then contact your local law enforcement agency. DPS also reminds Texans that the department does not call requesting charitable donations. The Department of Public Safety will never solicit financial contributions from private citizens. DPS is funded by tax dollars and our employees will never call your home or business to solicit donations, McCraw said. DPS advises citizens not to give money to these groups as the funds may not go to the causes that are claimed. Some groups include in their names the terms, Texas Rangers, State Troopers, Texas Highway Patrol, or Department of Public Safety. While some current or former employees may be members of some of these associations on their own time, these organizations are not affiliated with the DPS nor do they represent the department. Many of these organizations provide only a small percent of their donations for good causes, with the majority of the donations going to administrative and operational purposes. Some of these organizations suggest that official looking decals resembling official DPS affiliation placed on personal vehicles may somehow keep the individual from receiving a traffic citation from law enforcement. There is also a lack of public accountability and transparency by many of these organizations. If you are contacted by a group you believe is misrepresenting itself as part of the Texas Department of Public Safety, contact the Consumer Protection Division of the Texas Attorney General s Office at Enforcers Take 2nd Place in Texas Police Games In June, the Enforcers men s softball team participated in the Texas Police Games in DeSoto, Texas. Players on the team are from five County law enforcement agencies, said Richard Ferrino of the County Sheriff s Office. Ferrino said in 2007 the games were held in the Houston- area with softball competition played in the Big League Dreams softball complex in League City. I decided to get some guys together from this area and try out luck, Ferrino told The Police News. I felt we could compete with the players we had, and we did very well, coming in third of 25 teams in our very first tournament. This year was the fifth year of tournament competition for the Enforcers. We have placed 2nd (Silver Medal) twice, 3rd (Bronze Medal) once, and we finished once in 4th place. We definitely put County on the map in the softball tournaments, said Ferrino. This year the Enforcers were only one game away from winning the state championship, but lost two to a team they had beaten earlier in the day I guess it was just not our year, hot one minute, cold the next, said Ferrino. Ferrino added, I have to say I am really proud of our guys. We all worked hard and played well, but just came up a little short this year from being the best law enforcement softball team in Texas. The Texas Police Games will be in Austin in 2012 and the Enforcers will be there in hot pursuit of the gold medal. Brazoria County Deputy Dies in Highway Crash MANVEL, Texas - A Brazoria ua Waldrop, 26, was County sheriff s deputy died June 26th in a collision in Manvel.

9 San Antonio Killer...Cont. from page 4 standing up but her head injuries were received while lying flat. The injuries to her head were due to blows from the front. These injuries were inconsistent with a fall. Saucda s head injuries were consistent with her lying on the ground with somebody standing over her hitting her. DiMaio said the large rock could have delivered the injuries to her head. Based on the injuries to her head, DiMaio said she would had to have been struck with the rock two or three times. He said she died from blunt force trauma injuries to the head but he could not say for certain that the rock caused the injuries. He testified Sauceda was beaten about the face with a blunt object or more than one object which could have been the rock or something else. On cross-examination, DiMaio testified that one blow from the rock could have caused her death. DiMaio also testified about bite marks he found on the dead woman s left cheek, the right side of her neck and the left side of her chest. Another witness compared the bite marks on her chest and neck with dental impressions of Leal s teeth. They matched. The State s indictment charged that Leal killed Sauceda while in the course of and attempting either to kidnap or rape her. He was convicted and, after a separate punishment phase, sentenced to death. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals affirmed his conviction and sentence on direct appeal.

Execution July 20th for Revenge Killer A Mesquite, Texas man who said he killed a service station clerk in Dallas out of revenge for the Sept. 11 attacks is scheduled to be executed July 20th. Mark Anthony Stroman, 32, blamed the slaying of Vasudev Patel and two other shootings on his anger over the terrorist attacks. Patel, a 49-yearold Indian immark Anthony Stroman migrant and U.S. citizen, was shot during a robbery last Oct. 4, 2001 at the suburban Dallas station. The jury that sentenced Stroman to death convicted him of capital murder in less than an hour of deliberation after a brief trial in which prosecutors called their 10 witnesses in only six hours. Witnesses placed Stroman at the scene of the fatal shooting and ballistics tests showed a pistol he had discarded was the murder weapon. A 30-second videotape showed Stroman firing a single shot at Patel. Stroman s attorney argued that Stroman only wanted to rob Patel, not kill him. He said his client only fired when Patel reached for a handgun under the counter. Several family members were called by the defense during the punishment phase of the trial to describe a childhood of beatings and abuse. Stroman was also charged with capital murder in the slaying of a 27-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant at a service station in southeast Dallas Sept. 21. Thank You Police We d like to say a huge thank you to our Police Department! We had an intruder try to get in our house in the wee hours of the morning today, and then he took up a position on our front porch. When we called 911, two patrol cars were at our house literally in about 90 seconds and the officers took control of the situation immediately. The 911 dispatcher was also extremely professional and helpful. Again, our sincere appreciation to our police officers! Lynette and Bill Haaga POLICENEWSLINK.COM For late breaking police news!
