I do not believe that Morgan from the Texas Tribune knew that Pearson was lying to her about the hot check info, but this certainly is another example of the lies and deception coming from fired Police Chief Rodney Pearson (I have found today out that Morgan Smith has reached out to Julie and has asked Julie for more info to correct what she says Pearson is lying about)
On a side note, I hear from Not on the Payroll blog
that the city is looking to pay Pearson to go away. I wrote a story a few weeks ago saying that Pearson was only pulling the race card because he knew he would be fired and wanted to try to get some cash in a settlement
after he got fired....
Letter from Julie Fish regarding Chief Pearson accusation in Texas Tribune Story that she wrote Hot Check even though Public Record and arrest shows Pearson wrote check:
name is Julie Fish and I am Rodney Pearson's first wife and I just read
an article as follows from the texastribune.org With Cade Bersen hired
by Rodney Pearson for his termination as Chief of Police that has been
ongoing for months...
"Cade Bernsen, the former police chief’s
attorney, said the rankings were purposely devised to discredit Pearson,
who has 22 years of experience as a DPS trooper, and had never
previously been used to evaluate candidates. The check, he said, was
written by Pearson’s wife at the time, and was for less than $20."
In Jasper, Black Leaders Say Tensions Escalating After Chief's Dismissal, by Morgan Smith
Jasper continues to deal with fallout from the dismissal of its first
black police chief. Black community leaders in the East Texas town say
racial tensions are at "an all-time high.
Fish, did not write this hot check that was less than $20 dollars that
Rodney himself wrote and was arrested in Nolan County Texas "Sweetwater
Texas" and is now claiming that I wrote after Rodney was terminated...I
am so very appalled that the texastribune.org and The Bernson attorney
for the former Chief of Police would allow such an out right lie to
defame me. This is considered libel and I want a public apology due to
this out right lie that Rodney has told his attorney and that the
texastribune.org would print publicly. Again, Rodney was arrested in
Sweetwater Texas on Hot checks or check that he was repeatedly told to
take care of that he himself wrote. He was arrested at our home at the
time and booked and photographed and fingerprinted at at the Nolan
County Court house and then he bonded out...That check was written by
Rodney Pearson himself period...Anyone that is arrested it then becomes
Then once he was transferred to Jasper he
continued to have the same repetitive behavior with hot checks that he
left in Nolan county from where he was transferred to Jasper Texas. It
is also my understanding he was suspended with no pay for a certain
amount of days for theft of service by checks in Jasper Texas as well
which is also public record....It is not my fault that Rodney Pearson
was suspended with no pay for not taking care of his
No governing body of court of law or law
enforcement agency would allow someone to be arrested and booked on a
hot check that someone else wrote. The texastribune.org and the Berson's
attorney's are wrong for allowing this to be printed and published for
blaming and defaming my name for this particular check that Rodney
himself wrote...The truth shall set you free....
I want a
retraction of the truth printed as I will not set back and let someone
that has been terminated from a position that is in no way ever been or
even remotely connected to me. The is a libel charge and I am a strong
woman and I will stand up for what is right when it comes to my name...
I guess in today's world it has become so easy to blame someone else
for your own problems that was brought on from you yourself when all a
person has to do is be honest... Honesty to me is the ONLY
policy....Just to let the town of Jasper Texas Know that I am in no way
perfect and no one is, but to print an out right lie that defames my
name and can be proven by the open records right can prove my very
statement that I am openly speaking out about...PERIOD..
my homework and will continue until this stops and will do what it takes
to stop this libel and vicious way to make someone else look like that
it is the people of Jasper, Texas fault and now me, his first wife that
lives in another state... What is wrong with people...This has nothing
to do with race...Well, I maybe I am wrong, I am white and being accused
of something that I did not do, so maybe he texastribune.org would like
to interview me...I have lots of knowledge...
