    He lives in a house at 2573 cr 439. He drives a big white Toyota tundra truck! License plate 009 Sif. He is a fraud and something should be done.

  3. Investigator Thu, Aug 08 2013 2:00 PM

    We investigated it and found that the truck was in his girlfriends name, and she knew and said she bought it for him, so that case is closed. The house at 2575 SCR was in his name and that case also has been closed. We have done alot investigation on him and we have found that the business he is conducting is legit and no charges will be filed. As far as the sex offender registration goes, we have been in contact with law enforcement in Houston, Texas and they have provided paperwork from the court in Harris County, signed by the judge stating that he is not required to register as a sex offender, as he was married to person the charges were brought against him, the so called victim was named Jerrica Jefferson, we even have a marriage license on file for them. He has a court date later this year in which the case will be dismissed, your more than welcome to attend this court hearing to get the facts straight. He was arrested June 4 2013 for a misdeameanor child support violation, and that case to was dismissed, and the court issued him a OR bond, meaning he didnt have to pay anythimg to get out, this was issued because he is not required to register as a sex offender and the court is just waiting on more paperwork from Texas to close the case.
