Child porn in Nacogdoches jails/ Longview police volunteer indicted for child molestation/ Trinity County sheriff fails peace officer certification 3 times

with 4 comments

Nacogdoches County Texas: Posted in neighboring Nacogdoches, TX Daily Sentinel for April 10, 2007 county jailer and sheriff deputy arrested for child porn charges. Name: Brian Roy Sowell, age 39. His wife turned him in after finding his illegal filth on the county laptop he took home.

In 2003, former Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Lt. Michael Kennedy resigned over similar child porn allegations. This is the second incident of Nacogdoches law enforcement engaged in illegal internet activity in a matter of months. How about limiting their computer exposure?

Longview, TX: In a related story, the Longview News Journal reports on April 11, 2007 that a police volunteer Fred McDowell, age 74 is indicted for molesting an 8 year old back in 1988.

The former Nacogdoches Sheriff Joe Evans is the current Cherokee County District Attorney Investigator. Evans gives brief statements to the media during the Bueneka Adams murder trial of 2004, in Cherokee County.

Joe Evans has made no public comments published on the internet regarding his former Nacogdoches County jail employees and their indictments stemming from child porn charges. After his retirement as Nacogdoches County Sheriff, the department and jailhouse apparently deteriorated.

Trinity County Texas: Trinity County, TX Sheriff Jimmy Smith formally resigned on April 2, 2007 after failing his TCLEOSE peace officer’s certification test for the 3rd and final time.
The article cites:
The troubled department has had deputies facing criminal charges ranging from indecency with a child to prisoner abuse, plus five chief deputies moving through second-in-command in two years.”
Sheriff Smith was forced to retake the TCLEOSE test after the Groveton, TX police chief filed in January 2007 a legal petition with the Trinity county attorney’s office

Jimmy Smith was elected and took office in January 2005, and placed the county at risk being uncertified and without liability insurance. Something New Summerfield, TX in Cherokee County overlooked during the same time period, with the hiring and subsequent firing of psuedo-cop Michael Meissner.

  1. Well I’m not sure if I’m doing the right or wrong thing by writing this because there ARE some decent people in, and involved with, Trinity County, Texas, but overall, Trinity County is one of the most corrupt counties I’ve ever heard of. It’s poverty-stricken which usually brings about rampant illegal drug and alcohol problems and of course the thefts that come with this, and illiteracy follows, children left alone to fend for themselves — sometimes even against “Mom” and “Dad,” and a multitude of other sins continue to follow. It seems that county only punishes the innocent, and there’s very little innocence left there!

    I can't

  2. This is the new standard of liability for police misconduct, or brutality, and you are correct, these cops are out of control, and are violating our constitutional rights…

    • Well put and to the point.
      This only scratches the surface; however the problem lies with only a handful of individuals who own and operate within the region. The corrupt elements not only thrive on the constant fear but relish it. These are society’s rejects who could never make a penny in larger metropolitan areas. They believe they are righteous; they have convinced themselves that their actions are justified. It is the ones who promote their religiosity and go overboard in the local papers telling their cousins how wonderful they are.
      The best advice is just that: leave the area and never make the mistake of doing business there.
