Our Request:  We respectfully ask that Dallas District Attorney Faith Johnson and the Dallas DA's office ensure that the harshest possible charges and prosecution be applied toward known sexual predator Roy Gutierrez.

Background:  On June 18, 2017 at approximately 1:15 a.m., a 26-year-old woman was walking near Crowdus St. and Indiana St. in close proximity to the DART Green Line and, according to media reports, she was "attacked from behind and violently assaulted". The survivor was able to get help from a third-party who called 911; she was first taken to Baylor University Medical Center and then transferred to Parkland Hospital.  The Dallas Police Department worked quickly in posting a CCTV photo of a person of interest and, through the help of the public, were able to quickly arrest Gutierrez.

Current Situation: As of July 5, 2017, Roy Gutierrez is currently incarcerated by Dallas County on a $100,000 bond on a charge of AGGRESSIVE SEXUAL ASSAULT. This assailant's rap sheet goes back almost two decades and the severity of the crimes has increased over the years. Starting with "Criminal Trespass" in 1999, he quickly escalated to DWI, Burglary of Building, Burglary of Habitation, Probation Violations, AGGRIVATED SEXUAL ASSAULT (2007), more Probation Violations, and now, allegedly, this violent assault on the young woman in Deep Ellum on Jun 18, 2017.

Conclusion:  Many Residents and Business Owners in the Deep Ellum community wish to convey to the Dallas District Attorney that we are closely watching the court cases of persons that perpetuate violent crimes in our neighborhood. Roy Gutierrez, through his own actions going back to 1999, has shown time and again that he is a threat to society.

Therefore, we are requesting that the Dallas District Attorney's office do their utmost in ensuring the harshest possible prosecution against Roy Gutierrez take place as he is a detriment to society and needs to be incarcerated for the longest possible sentence.
