For what reason does he want custody? If he didnt have to pay child support would he want custody?

CORPUS CHRISTI CALLER TIMES Mother in beating video flap reportedly acknowledges custody threat Share 0 Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that Hallie Adams, Hillary’s mother, who has been divorced from Hillary’s father, County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams, since 2007, “acknowledged that (the video’s) release comes as Judge Adams seeks to regain custody of their 10-year-old daughter.” Hallie Adams told the Today show that: She told him to stop texting and contacting her this past June, she claimed, and added that he has threatened to have her younger daughter removed from her custody. Hillary Adams talks with the Today show‘s Matt Lauer about why she decided to release this video of her father hitting her with a belt seven years ago: “I’ve experienced everything from crying about it to almost just laughing,’’ Hillary told TODAY. “I’ve just experienced so many emotions. Sometimes it’s like reliving it, and sometimes it’s like watching it from a completely different point of view. It’s really impossible to put all of that into words. “I think (my father) has been punished enough just by seeing this go public like this, and I think he just really needs help and rehabilitation,” she said.

"IN THE KNOW": Why did Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin say the videotape footage is destroyed?

"IN THE KNOW": Why did Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin say the videotape footage is destroyed?

Why did Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin say the videotape footage is destroyed?




YOU"RE FIRED! I understand you are now Twice as Nice? How bout a DOUBLE DOSE of Karma? Then, it can be twice as nice for your pleasure. How many times did Shelly Amaya and Jennifer Shearer "go at it" while at work or did she keep that strap on thing in her pants?How bout a sex offender sign in your front yard and in front of your establishment? Some say Karma is a bitch and a bitch you and your pleasured Nueces County Jailers deserve.

video


Jennifer Shearer is still employed as a Nueces County Deputy Officer. How can that be unless she falsified government records and failed to mention her participation / complicity in the sexual assault. Dont worry her picture is going out next. Pass the word to Shearer and then let her know that Dora et al is not like Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin, Dora et al saves the video tapes. Those cost a lot more than fifty bucks and the Judge along with a "few good men" already have been furnished a copy. She said you that you could last forever with that huge phallic package. Unzip your pants and let us all have a look! After all no man could match you? Dont worry Dora said you "went at it" like the depraved warped man you are. Now lets compete man to man, I challenge You Jennifer Shearer to a PISSING contest and I will even allow you a head start pardon the pun. Can you piss on a fire. Like Nelly says in his song, "It's getting hot in here so take off all your clothes" and lets witness pathetic little you.

Jennifer Shearer then begins to follow us. We pull over and let her pass then behind her as she then turns so as to reposition herself behind us. We see a CCPD Car and approach to document the actions of Shelly Amaya's accomplice. Well, somehow the officer accuses us of following when in fact it was the other way around. My question is how can we be following Shearer when in fact Shearer is behind us and as the video demonstrates Shearer was the one stalking us. Me thinks the Female Officer and Jennifer Shearer are pals in an off duty capacity; they sure were buddied up during this event. The end result was the CCPD Officer impounded my car despite having insurance and we were not on a public thoroughfare. This is just the tip of the iceberg!

Hey Balderas, how do you like it when "she gets to stick her fingers in you"? Who made that policy was it you punk?? Everyone, now it is your turn to get gang raped, invaded in your own home because you are a UFO? That means you f'n owe. Thats what happens when a crooked judge makes a stroke of the pen because of a unpaid fine that was unpayable because he wanted to confine us for a class c misdemeanor punishable by fine only and NOT BY CONFINEMENT. But then again you already knew that You Cox sucker! So like my fair weather friend Johnny Canales always exclaimed on his show, "ESSO,...... TAKE IT AWAY". "YOU GOT IT"!

And what happens when a Nueces County Jailer violates an inmate while other jailers watch as if it were entertainment?

When a request for the videotape footage in writing; what answer did Jim Kaelin tender?

In the light most favorable to the innocence of the accused Jailers it seems video footage would solve the allegations?

That is of course assuming that these Nueces County Deputy Correction Officers did not violate any civil rights or any laws?

A Sexual Assault was committed by Shelly Amaya along with a still employed and sexually aroused (by the way) Officer Jennifer Shearer encouraging the act. Oh yeah and a bunch of male Nueces County Deputy Correction Officers watching Amaya as she tore the clothes off, slammed the inmate on the floor and proceeded to mount the inmate and insert her fingers into the inmates' vagina. Finally one officer removed the Jailer as she was bold enough to admit "she said, "that's right I did say I was going to get to stick my fingers in you" and Colonel Jessup would be proud of the spirit she said it in! You know how he was proud of admitting as if he were bragging?

Jessup: "What's going on? I did my job, I'd do it again!
[stands up defiantly]

Kaffie: we have to get Jessup to tell the court members that he ordered the code red.

I think he wants to say it. I think he's pissed off that he has to hide behind all this. I think he wants to say that he made a command decision and that should be then end of it.
[Starts imitating Jessup]
Kaffee: He eats breakfast 300 yards away from 4000 Cubans who are trained to kill him. And nobody's going to tell him how to run his unit least of all the Harvard mouth in his faggoty white uniform. I need to shake him, put him on the defensive and lead him right where he's dying to go.There is nothing on this earth sexier, believe me, gentlemen, than a woman you have to salute in the morning. Promote 'em all, I say, 'cause this is true: if you haven't gotten a blowjob from a superior officer, well, you're just letting the best in life pass you by.

Kaffee: *Colonel Jessep, did you order the Code Red?*
Judge Randolph: You *don't* have to answer that question!
Col. Jessep: I'll answer the question!
[to Kaffee]
Col. Jessep: You want answers?
Kaffee: I think I'm entitled.
Col. Jessep: *You want answers?*
Kaffee: *I want the truth!*
Col. Jessep: *You can't handle the truth!*

[pauses]
Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
Kaffee: Did you order the Code Red?
Col. Jessep: I did the job I...
Kaffee: *Did you order the Code Red?*
Col. Jessep: *You're Goddamn right I did!*




As the inmate repeatedly dared Shelly Amaya to admit that she had already said she was going to stick her fingers in the inmate.

She said it and the male member of the Nueces County Jailer Audience pulled Shelly Amaya from on top of the naked inmate.

Why do they answer and say the videotape footage is destroyed?

Surely they would use it to vindicate themselves?

Heck,..... wouldnt that put and end to these allegations?

Jay Worthington conducting an internal affairs investigation? Yep, he is definitely worthless and Mike Lowrance well lets just say since it is not his wife who endured the sexual acts and it is Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin who is his "dom" and it is Nueces County Sheriff's department from who he receives his authority and paycheck; who knows karma is life giving you back what you give, dish out and / or deserve I just pray Karma gives it to him and not his spouse. Yeah they are all little bitches,.... where is Bubba when we need him?

I have one man who stood with me! The rest of you well you know,..... it is hitting you about right now. Dont worry you guys have time to get your political puppets milked out and get your greedy souls paid but I assure you I care nothing about the chumps running for office nor the power they think they possess. Power, influence or just the sheer trumping of a pure heart. Joe Flores, I gotta give it to you you are awarded the suckass, bull####ter, limp phallus constipation of the brain / diahrea of the mouth #### all over yourself an love it award of the year.

New DA post will help lighten Valdez caseload

Hubert, a Kingsville resident, will have felony jurisdiction.



CORPUS CHRISTI — The newly created district attorney position for Kleberg and Kenedy counties could help lessen jail overcrowding and case backlogs.

Gov. Rick Perry appointed John Hubert, who will be sworn in today in Austin, as the district attorney for the two counties.

Since 2005, officials from both counties have hoped to ease the growing workload of 105th District Attorney Carlos Valdez, who was tasked with handling cases in Nueces, Kleberg and Kenedy counties.

But up until the recent 80th legislative session a bill to create the position had been unsuccessful.

Kleberg County Judge Pete De La Garza credited Sen. Eddie Lucio Jr., D-Brownsville, for carrying the legislation and said it will benefit all three counties.

"This is a win-win for us," De La Garza said. "(Valdez) did an excellent job for us but it just got too voluminous."

It also will help with the county's jail overcrowding by allowing prisoners to go through the court process quicker, De La Garza added.

Valdez, who was not available for comment Friday, has said that with another district attorney for those two counties he can refocus his efforts on tackling Nueces County cases.

Hubert, a Kingsville resident, will have felony jurisdiction, while the County Attorney's Office will continue to handle misdemeanor cases.

Hubert, who received two Bronze Stars, led a tank platoon in combat in the Gulf War.

He served as an assistant district attorney of Nueces County for a year and as an assistant district attorney for Kleberg and Kenedy Counties for four years.

"This is one of those jobs where I can really make a difference," Hubert said. "One of the major goals is to basically get the whole process done on a more timely schedule."

The Army Reserves major is the commander of Headquarters and Headquarters Company 451st Civil Affairs Battalion in Pasadena.

Kenedy County Judge J.A. Garcia was not available for comment on Friday.

The two counties have a combined population of about 33,000. The state will provide all the funding for the new district attorney position, including Hubert's $125,000 annual salary along with $19,833 in benefits and a $3,500 car allowance. Another $33,500 a year in funding to operate the district attorney's office also will be provided by the state, De La Garza said.

This man John Hubert is not fit to serve the people. He is a malicious prosecutor. Next week a Federal Lawsuit will be filed against the 105th District, Kleberg County, City of Kingsville, John Hubert alleging Civil Rights Violations, prosecution for personal interests, abuse of power, official oppression, falsifying documents, malicious prosecution, jury tampering with more to be listed upon the filing of the lawsuit next week. It is possible that this case will evolve into a class action lawsuit to engulf the Uranium Processing, the groundwater contamination and the complicity of Gov Rick Perry, Kleberg County, and the City of Kingsville.

Governor appoints Anna Jimenez as Nueces County’s DA Successor to lead office until November election  

By Mary Ann Cavazos, Jaime Powell Posted March 18, 2010 at 11:12 a.m. , updated March 18, 2010 at 5:06 p.m.



 CORPUS CHRISTI — Hours after Gov. Rick Perry announced Anna Jimenez was his choice for Nueces County district attorney she was surrounded by fellow Republicans and some Democrats, as she was sworn in. Jimenez, 40, is the first woman and first Hispanic Republican to hold the post — two points she brought up during the informal swearing ceremony officiated by 13th Court of Appeals Justice Rose Vela, a fellow Republican. “I wanted to get the process done so I can get to work,” Jimenez said. Jimenez will fill the spot vacated by longtime District Attorney Carlos Valdez, who now is city attorney. About 40 well wishers, including Sheriff Jim Kaelin, County Judge Loyd Neal, County Commissioner Mike Pusley, County Commissioner-elect Joe McComb and District Judge Tom Greenwell, all Republicans, were among those who cheered. Democrats, including Valdez, lawyer Bill Edwards and District Judge J. Manuel Bañales also attended, which several Republicans said signals Jimenez has support across party lines. “I’m so proud of you,” Valdez told Jimenez, hugging her. Speaking to the crowd, Valdez called Jimenez’s appointment historic and added that he believed Gov. Perry made a good choice. Jimenez has been a prosecutor in Valdez’s office since 2006. “I know her abilities and her work ethic,” Valdez said. “I know she will do an excellent job.” Valdez said he had to attend what he called a historic moment for Nueces County. First Assistant District Attorney Mark Skurka also interviewed in Austin for the job. Valdez said Skurka also would have been a fine pick for a position he feels should be nonpartisan. “There’s no Democratic or Republican way to prosecute or judge a case,” he said. Jimenez will seek the Republican nomination for a November special election to complete the final two years of Valdez’s unexpired term. Skurka had served as acting district attorney until Jimenez’s appointment. He intends to seek the Democratic nomination for the position. Several key Republicans supported Jimenez for the job and are likely to support her as their nominee, a decision that will be made by the party’s precinct chairs. Neal, Pusley, State Rep. Todd Hunter, businessman Mike Scott, businessman Dick Bowers, lawyer Lance Bruun as well as former GOP party chairmen Mike Bertuzzi and Joel Yowell sent a list of potential candidates for the district attorney job to the governor and listed pluses and minuses for each, Pusley said. Jimenez, who has an undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and a law degree from Texas Southern University, was a standout among the group, several said. She has longtime ties to the local GOP, Pusley said. “We think No. 1 that she will make a good D.A. Secondly, we think she is electable in November,” Pusley said. “We have to look at people who we think are electable.” Valdez spent 17 years leading the District Attorney’s Office. The district attorney’s salary is $136,000.

He has lost elections before and he will again. How funny is it that he was willing to turn republican for this appointment but when he doesn't get it he runs back to the democrats.

Those listed would not put their name or their character on the line by asking for someone who WAS NOT qualified to be considered. As for Skurka, he has sat in the shadows for too long. He is part of the previous administration and more than likely would not provide any change to the functions of the office or the pursuit of the bad boys (girls) of CC. I wish Ms. Jimenez the best of luck in this new endeavor. I applaud her for her accomplishments in prosecuting some really sick individuals that prey upon our most vulnerable citizens - our children. Anyone who can take on these sick B*S*A*D* deserves a little more credit than some of you, with negative comments, have provided.

Is she for incarceration, rehabiliation, or just letting offenders slide until they really screw up. How does she plan to work with the Adult Probation and Parole Dept.? Does she believe in the death penalty ? If yes, for what offenses ? What changes does she plan to make at the DA's Office ? Why ? In closing, I feel we need Judge's that are fair, firm and tough. Give the criminal one or two chances and on strike 3 say bye-bye. The time has come to get tough on crime and take back our streets. I agree.

I'll wager you, this deal was struck some time ago to even the playing field. The talk in previous post was Valdez couldn't win another election. He opted to move over to city atty and create an open slot in the DA's office. Gov Rick blessed it, done deal. It's temporary, but it fits. If Ms Jimenez decides to run for the position, and wins, Gov has jumped started her career. If she runs and loses, but makes a decent showing, she'll have name recognition.

Dear True Ill-Informed: The last time, go check the minutes, the Commissioners approved raises for themselves was during Peggy Banales tenure and that was somewhere around 4 years ago. The one you should be complaining about having too many pay increases are the divas behind the computers in the courtroom - the court reporters. Most of them make at least $20-30k more per year (and that is just on the county pay - not all their "other" pay) than the ADA's. As for "prosecuting the smarter, more experienced criminals", the ADA goes to battle with the Defense Attorney moreso than the "accused". Many who do work in the DA's office are there because they WANT to make a difference, then there are those who are there collecting a check and not doing a thing (which is par for the course for many in the courthouse). www.caller.com/news/2007/aug/21/county-commissioners-get-25-pay-raise/
