Suing Victims After Pleading Guilty


A former teacher at King High School in Corpus Christi is suing the mother of a child she plead guilty to having an improper relationship with. It is also being reported that she plans to sue the minor involved in the encounter claiming he videotaped a sexual encounter between the two of them and that action was an invasion of her privacy. If nothing else this is a very strange case. The teacher, Tanya Ramirez, said in her complaint the mother visited several Corpus Christi TV stations and referred to her as a sexual predator.

The mother of the minor is also being accused of making statements to those media companies saying Ramirez had carried on other relationships with minor children in addition to her own. Ramirez went on to claim that her emotional distress lead to her losing a job after leaving the school system. It has not been reported how much money she is seeking in this lawsuit.

$5 Million Bond For Killing A Dog


I freely admit that I'm a dog lover and when stories like this come out it makes me sick to my stomach. On Sunday 3-year-old German shepherd Jethro was shot many times as his handler and other police officers answered a call of a break-in at a Canton, Ohio business. According to police reports, 22-year-old Kelontre Barefield shot and killed Jethro as police arrived to arrest him.

While it is very likely to be adjusted in the near future. The judge who arraigned Barefield set his bond as $5 million dollars. Almost 100 people showed up for a vigil for Jethro on Sunday to show their respect for this fallen officer. Every year in the United States, the lives of police officers are saved by dogs like Jethro. May he rest in peace.

Should Her Family Get $250,000?


In April of last year a Texas Tech student by the name of Morgan Lee was killed when the vehicle she was driving was stuck by an SUV driven by a Lubbock police officer. The city believes that Lee was the person at fault, but the city council there is considering a payment in the amount of $250,000 on Thursday to end the case. Is this the right decision for the City of Lubbock to make?

Police believe that Lee caused her own death when she turned into the path of the police vehicle. The family has said through their attorneys that they believe the police officer was driving at an unsafe speed at the time and that his negligence was the cause of the accident. Morgan Lee was 19-years-old and a resident of Abilene at the time of her death. If this settlement agreement is approved by the city, they will face no further liability.
