Child Molester Set Free After Hardin County TX Sheriff's Deputy Investigated for Child Porn

After writing several articles about corruption in Hardin County and Lumberton, TX nothing should surprise me anymore right? WRONG!

This latest incident of public corruption shocked me and will likely shock anyone in Texas, or America for that matter.

Charges were dropped against accused child rapist Toby Langham, but not because he did not do it. District Attorney David Sheffield had to drop the charges and let Langham walk because, get this, Hardin County Sheriff's Department Sergeant Jerry Roberts, from Lumberton, TX, is being investigated by the Feds for having Child Porn. Jerry Roberts was the lead investigator for the case against Langham and that means all of his work against Langham is tainted. Now I do not believe that Langham will get out of charges in the long run. David Sheffield will get the evidence back together against Langham (without involvement from Jerry Roberts) and he will bring charges back against the accused Child Rapist. But still, talk about corruption! An accused child rapist goes free because the Sheriff Deputy investigating the case was himself being investigated for having child porn. That is just hard to believe, but it is true.

I am glad to see that Hardin County Sheriff Ed Cain took swift action and removed Jerry Roberts from the force until the investigation is over, which at that time if the evidence shows Jerry Roberts really had child porn, he needs to be fired.

This has also been a hard few months for District Attorney David Sheffield. His own Hardin County District Attorney office clerk, Philip Rodriguez, was recently hit with a public corruption scandal when it was discovered that one of his own employees was stealing money from the public. I was glad to see that Sheffield, like Ed Cain, also took swift action and fired this employee. Great job Hardin County Treasurer Sharon Overstreet for discovering the theft!

Public Corruption is everywhere. This is especially true in East Texas. That is why we should always stay vigilant. We should always ask questions. We should always demand transparency. When we find the public corruption, we need to expose it so that it will deter future public corruption and so that the bad guys will be brought to justice.

Unfortunately, this will not be the last story of public corruption in Hardin County and Lumberton, TX. Other instances of corruption are being investigated as I type this article. Check back here in the future so that you do not miss when I post new articles about public corruption in East Texas!

  1. I have no faith in DA Sheffield and don't think he will bring the child molester to court. I brought evidence to him years ago wthe county attorney about child molestion case and he said he couldn't do anything about it! But when I showed the evidence to a friend who worked at the D.A.'s office in Jefferson county I was told that if I lived in Jeff. CO. These people would have been arrested immediately! I find Sheffield is soft on Molesters.

  2. I know for a fact Sheffield is covering up many child molestation cases an it should not be blamed on the sheriff investigator from what I gather they can't even charge him because there's no evidence so I personally have dealt with Sheffield an my children's cases an was told I had to take plea bargain or we wouldn't get a jury trial for several years then he may walk away with no charges also was told to becareful who I talk to about our case because I never know who may be bringing the information right back to him an him being Sheffield so what was that said to me for who is covering up these cases him or someone else but I will say my children or terrified of him. I can't say why other than I wasn't allowed in the room when he spoke to my kids an they came out in tears saying that he told them there was not enough evidence an acted as he didn't believe them but that's ok God knows the truth an he is our true judge an that's all I have to say God be with this county an put it on all the crooked ones in office that they one day will meet our maker.
