It's Not What You Did That's Important - It's Who You Know

From an article by John MacCormack in the San Antonio Express If you have the right connections you can get away with anything, even rape. In Guadalupe County (Seguin) one Roger Sanchez was caught on tape raping a woman but the assistant DA who reviewed his case, Kristy Stone, declined to prosecute. Ms. Stone saw no conflict of interest problem from her prior defense of Sanchez when she was in private practice. Her boss, District Attorney Heather McMinn apparently agrees - the case has languished since mid-April. The victim's lawyer, James Millan, was finally able to shame McMinn into referring the case to the Attorney General. Report: Boy Scout files reveal repeat child abuse LOS ANGELES (AP) — Internal documents from the Boy Scouts of America reveal more than 125 cases in which men suspected of molestation allegedly continued to abuse Scouts, despite a blacklist meant to protect boys from sexual predators..... Predators moved from troop to troop because of clerical errors, computer glitches or the Scouts' failure to check the blacklist, known as the "perversion files," the newspaper said. In at least 50 cases, the Scouts expelled suspected abusers, only to discover they had re-entered the organization and were accused of molesting again. In other cases, officials failed to document reports of abuse in the first place, letting offenders stay in the program until new allegations came to light, the Times reported. One scoutmaster was expelled in 1970 for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy in Indiana. After being convicted of the crime, he went on to join two troops in Illinois between 1971 and 1988. He later admitted to molesting more than 100 boys, was convicted of the sexual assault of more than 100 boys.


  1. That's exactly right and the good ole boy system is alive and well here in Kerr County. Let's see what the 216th does with Lou Chamberlain, considering all of her and the other parties involvement with that pesky DA election.
