The integrity of the justice system is based on everybody following the rules.
In Sept 2012, I was indicted with false evidence on 3 felonies and facing 25 years to life in prison. My crime ? Protecting and defending a 14th-month-old Military Working Dog (excess) and myself from a neighbor's 5-year-old hunting dog that ambushed us in the middle of the street at night.
This was exculpatory evidence suppressed and withheld by Williamson County.
Round Rock Police 911 call.
My service dog and I were ambushed from behind by a dog owned by Billy & Amber Rodgers. The Rodgers and their friends lied to police and the media about the incident. Billy Rodgers mother is Pam Rodgers, and she is a director for the Texas Attorney State Generals Office. She lied to protect her son and daughter in law.
Billy Rodgers, Amber Rodgers, and their friends were too busy getting drunk and smoking weed while their dog was outside, unleashed and unsupervised. Their dog Rusty charged off their property and made several attempts to bite my dog in the middle of the street.
Why did the Rodgers decide to inform the prosecutor 18 months later that they were smoking weed? I find that very fishy ...
How many people are locked up in Texas for possessing/smoking weed?
It is a crime to possess marijuana in Texas. Penalties vary according to the amount possessed, with increased penalties for offenses in a drug-free school zone. (Texas Stat. and Code Ann. § 481.121.)
Two ounces or less. Penalties include a fine of up to $2,000, up to 180 days in jail, or both.
Yet, Billy Rodgers and his friends get a free pass because if you are the son of a Director with the Texas Attorney State General's Office. It is okay for you to smoke weed and break the law ... isn't that right Gov. Greg Abbott! Greg Abbott was the Attorney State General during this time.
Maybe the police already knew that and turned a blind eye to it. Allison Sutton is a former Austin ISD Police Officer. Her husband Eric Sutton made verbal death threats to shoot me and my dog and threw a beer bottle at us.
I was arrested the first time, on false testimony of Amber Rodgers. She told police she was hit by bullet shrapnel. Which was false, the charge - deadly conduct for injuring an innocent bystander. Police knew within 2-3 days she was lying.
I was arrested again for the second time for animal cruelty. Even though DA Jana Duty and Williamson County had the 911 call and other evidence that proved I was defending my service dog and myself.
Amber Rodgers lied:
No due process or fairness in the law. I am asking that my case be properly investigated and that everyone involved is held accountable to the full extent of the law. Several pieces of evidence were suppressed and hidden for almost 2 years until I found it through an open records request. False evidence was presented to the Grand Jury to get an indictment. This is a color of law violation/abuse.
Judge Ken Anderson presided over my case and violated my civil rights.
(Google Ken Anderson - Michael Morton case)
Judge Ken Anderson, DA Jana Duty, and Prosecutor Elizabeth Whited abused their position as public servants to break the law. This Round Rock 911 call was suppressed by DA Jana Duty, Prosecutor Elizabeth Whited, and others. Even though this 911 call doesn't paint a complete picture on how intense and chaotic this situation was. It does show I acted in self-defense of my service dog and myself.
Here is Cedar Park police video of Amber Rodgers caught collaborating with her husband to lie on her police statement. It starts at 3:25 into the video.
Here is Cedar Park police video of Billy Rodgers caught lying to police, he fabricates a lot of stories on how our dogs met and played together. Just skip to 30:00 into video and watch what he does when the detective asks him if he had any more contact with me after the 11 Aug 2012 party. He nods his head "NO".
Billy Rodgers has lied to so many people about our dog's having a play history together. So how did our dog's meet and play together on numerous occasions if I didn't adopt Alicia until the 29th of Aug 2012?
** Aalice aka Alicia not only "NEVER" met the Rodgers dog, Rusty! **
** Alicia "DOES NOT" play with other dogs! **
The bigger question is why law enforcement have not arrested the Rodger's and their friends for giving false statements to police, obstruction of justice and aggravated perjury etc ...
** Important dates to my case **
- 11 August 2012 - Last contact with Rodgers at birthday party for 4 yr old.
- 29 August 2012 - Date I adopted Aalice aka Alicia from Lackland AFB.
- 2 Sept 2012 - Date the Rodgers dog "Rusty" charged off their property and made several attempts to bite my dog, Alicia.
** OUR DOG'S NEVER MET. **
Here is a 2 part KVUE news broadcast of the Rodgers lying to the media, claiming that their dog was only being friendly. Even the news reporter Jessica Holloway gets caught lying about facts in the case stating I dispatched the dog on the sidewalk in front of the house. Big difference from the middle of the street and the sidewalk.
Here is how KXAN news portrayal of the incident.
Here is FOX News portrayal of the incident.
Here is a comparison of how I was compared to New York Police Officers that injured innocent bystanders in a shootout by PJ Media.

Not one news media outlet has apologized to me for this slanderous reporting.
The Rodgers and their close ties to the Texas Justice system, local law enforcement and friends in news media were able to paint me as a monster.
Local leaders, law enforcement, and others had demanded that DA Jana Duty resigns immediately. She got voted out of office but still walked away from any criminal charges in my case.
The Texas justice system disregarded my rights as a citizen. They disrespected me as a veteran. This is a huge cover up and embarrassment to the Texas Justice system. Was Judge Ken Anderson not enough of a slap in the face to the justice system? The state of Texas decided to violate my civil rights to protect Billy Rodgers. Why? Because his mother is a director for the Attorney State Generals Office? Even though there is a mountain of evidence showing they lied, collaborated to lie and conspire others to lie with them and got caught.
Gov. Rick Perry signed the Michael Morton Act on 16 May 2013 and it became law on 1 Jan 2014. The ink on this bill wasn't even dry yet and Williamson County was still up to their shenanigans. It just goes to show how corrupt the Texas justice system really is, they knew they were wrong and continue to cover up this injustice. They want citizens to obey the law, to have respect for the law. Yet it is okay for them to break the law.
This law does nothing to prevent corrupt District Attorneys or Prosecutors from suppressing and hiding evidence. There is no punishment for them to abuse the law and deny citizens due process.
They can ruin someone's life, destroy their reputation and honor and just walk away.
I am going to ask members of Congress and the Senate to pass laws to do away with immunity for public servants. Police Officers don't get immunity to do their jobs, they are expected to perform their duty with integrity and honor.
Prosecutors across the country abuse this right.
People wonder why there is a loss of respect for government, for state officials and law enforcement. It is situations like the one I found myself in that makes people outraged. If it can happen to me, it can happen to you. As long as there is corruption in our justice system. Our country will never heal.
Double standard's in the law does "NOT" build trust or respect. It destroys everything good that was laid out beforehand. You betray the trust of the people and you gain nothing.
As a soldier, I took an oath to protect our country and our Constitution. Yet these people stole from me the very right I swore to protect. I gave 23 years of faithful service to our country and the United States Army and this is how Texas repays my service.
In all ... my 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendment rights violated, wrongful arrest. My property illegally surrendered and held for almost two years. And three felonies left on my record as dispose.
This petition is not just for me and my family, it is for every single person that has ever been dealt an injustice. Help me fight back and hold these bad apples accountable. They disgrace the position and badge of the men and women who truly are fighting for justice, for the Law Enforcement Officers who put their lives on the line every single day to keep us safe.
Greg Abbott and his staff have had more than four years to make an apology to me and my family. Instead of making things right, they doubled down on hiding this.
They will spend money to send investigators to sharpshoot me instead of holding the people responsible. If Greg Abbott can not and will not make an effort to protect my civil rights, how can he protect the rights of Texans as a whole for the state of Texas?
For anybody out there who witnesses an injustice and does nothing, you are part of the problem and not the solution.
Please share my petition and leave a comment.
