antron.fogler.facebookBreakfast reading from the Voice Media Empire: Antron Fogler, 51, has a long, long, long criminal history filled with plenty of unpleasantness. And if the accusations pressed against him are accurate, he’s added a repulsive new act. He’s been arrested on allegations that he pawed at least two women, and masturbated in front of one, while posing as a door-to-door salesman. Westword has the story.

img_1008On the night Jessica says she was raped by a prison guard at the Federal Detention Center in downtown Houston, she had only four days left of her sentence before she was released. (She requested that we not use her real name.)

It had been about six weeks since she cut off a consensual relationship with a prison guard named Samuel Hawkins and began resisting his advances, she said. But on the night of November 15, 2015, Hawkins came to her cell and told her to come with him to drop off a tissue box on the male floor, where she knew one of the inmates. Hawkins “paraded her around,” said Jessica’s attorney, Bill Underwood. And when he returned her to her own cell, seeming jealous of the attention from other men, Jessica says he told her,  “We’re gonna have our first real fight tonight,” before raping her. Hawkins pled guilty to sexual abuse of a ward.

jack-warmolts-facebook-3Breakfast reading from the Voice Media Empire: While Warmolts will have to spend time county jail, the sentence stipulated by the pact keeps him out of prison. This kind of comparatively light punishment for sex crimes involving white, college-age defendants has upset critics on the national level, as in the case of convicted Stanford rapist Brock Turner. Westword has the story.
