Dear Editor,

There is a very big problem in this county that everyone should be made aware of. There is a very poor prosecution for juvenile sex offenders.

There is one case that is conformed of a juvenile sex offense and it was thrown out “due to lack of evidence,” nevertheless, when someone admits to doing something illegal, as this juvenile did, they are guilty. This case devastated a family and he, the offender, did not get a punishment, but offered the chance to do the same thing again, knowing there will be no consequences.

This juvenile got away with devastating another with this disgusting act. It is just as disgusting that the people we trust to uphold the law get away with breaking it, protecting the guilty, and punishing the victims by not doing the job they get paid for.

The police men and women involved in this case did their job in collecting proper evidence, but even it was dismissed, and justice was not served.

Hopefully this letter will get the attention of people and parents and support for the victims. Beware – sex crimes and drugs are taking over this community. They are in our schools, our playgrounds, our football field, and all around. Our children are at risk, young victims unsupported and unprotected as the criminal walks free. If we don’t stand up against poor prosecution, it will get worse.

An attempt to find upstanding citizens who care for justice and the safety of our children, tweens, and teens is being made. Please help support myself and a few others who are soon to fight because of the lack of justice and lack of caring for the victims. This is a very important issue and it will be fought. When proper procedure to help fight this situation is obtained, I will notify publically and ask for all the support I can get.

Henry Hesskew,

Blanco, TX
