Maggie Noel

Dozens of people came out Wednesday evening to celebrate the birthday of Houstonian Maggie Noel. 

The event was held at Oroa Eicholtz Furniture in the new River Oaks Shopping District. 

Lots of familiar faces attended the event including JMac, DJ SupaStar, Gail Brown,  Debra Duncan,  Jamika Wester, Alexis Robbie, Sam Turner,  John Cantu, James Williams, and many more. 

Here are some of the pictures I snapped at the event that lasted through the night. 

Is Houston based reality star, attorney, and elected official Jolanda Jones preparing to get married to her best friend Cherrise Traylor??????

Social media caught on fire when Traylor gave Jones what appeared to be an engagement ring for Christmas.

The photo of the gift was posted on Facebook.

So we sat Jones down and tried to grill her if it was a wedding or not.
Jones says, “Cherrise Shocked me and gave me this ring for Christmas…(Isiah) Is that ring that means you spend the rest of your lives together? (Jones) You might as well ask her that too.”

I guess we will have to grill Cherrise Traylor next to get to the bottom of this.

On Sunday, December 26, 2016, at approximately 3:40 PM, Deputies with the Montgomery
County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division were dispatched to a reported shooting that had occurred at a residence in the 29400 block of Aberdeen Road, in Magnolia, Texas.

Upon Deputies arrival, it was discovered that a 20 year old male, identified as Oscar Salazar, had been shot at the location. Emergency Medical Technicians were summoned to the location, who attempted life saving measures, but were unsuccessful. Mr. Salazar was pronounced deceased at the location.

Witnesses at the location reported that the deceased’s step-brother, 29 year old male Nelson M. Segovia-Amaya, arrived at the home and proceeded into Mr. Salazar’s room.

Shots were heard from the room a short time later and Mr. Segovia-Amaya was then witnessed exiting from the room. Reportedly Mr. Segovia-Amaya then pointed a handgun at other occupants of the residence before exiting. Mr. Segovia-Amaya was then witnessed exiting the property in a vehicle.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Units, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigators, and representatives with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office responded to the scene. A description of the suspect and suspect vehicle was aired over the radio.

A Department of Public Safety Trooper was able to locate the suspect and suspect vehicle near FM 1488 and Interstate 45. The suspect and suspect vehicle was stopped nearby and the suspect identified. Investigators were able to proceed to that location and continue an investigation. After the initial investigation, the suspect, Nelson M. Segovia-Amaya, was arrested and charged with the murder of his step-brother Oscar Salazar.

The investigation is still ongoing

A Yahoo premium subscriber has filed a proposed class action lawsuit against the internet giant, saying the company failed to properly protect his and other subscribers’ sensitive data during two recent massive data breaches.

Last week, Yahoo confirmed that 1 billion Yahoo user accounts were compromised by hackers in August 2013, in an incident likely separate from the big data breach that the company disclosed in September.

In this recent data breach involving 1 billion users, Yahoo said “stolen user account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers.”

Bob Lord, chief information security officer (CISO) at Yahoo, gave details of the data breach in a Dec. 14 blog post, and stated the hackers have not been identified, but it is believe the cyber thieves may have used “forged cookies” to access user accounts without needing to know their password.

“We believe an unauthorized third party, in August 2013, stole data associated with more than one billion user accounts. We have not been able to identify the intrusion associated with this theft,” Lord said.

The second data breach incident was uncovered after U.S. law enforcers shared files with the company that a third-party claimed contained Yahoo user data.

Salem Missionary Baptist Church’s leader Rev. Hosea Stubblefield has rallied the troops to show he has support at their house of worship despite the controversy.

He says, “I would tell everybody again I’m not saying it was right and I do apologize about it and it was a mistake that was made in my past.”

It was Monday when we first reported the former head Deacon and some church members wanted Stubblefield gone.

That’s after the congregation learned their pastor made several explicit sex videos with various women that were posted on a blog.

Lecobeun Lewis says, “they all be up there in front of the church saying God spoke to me. Did he speak to you before or after you made the videos.”

Stubblefield acknowledges he made the sex videos – between 5 and 10 of them over a ten year period. The most recent just two years ago…

However, the 32 year old’s main point is he wasn’t a pastor at Salem Missionary when it happened but he does admit he was still a preacher.

“I have been a preacher for over twelve years,” says Stubblefield.

He says the congregation has kicked out the Davis family – the ones who made the church aware of the sex scandal – The preacher says he’s pursuing criminal charges against the person he says stole the videos from him..

Some of the videos also ended up on this blog by a woman who said she once dated Stubblefield and wanted the public to know what kind of man he is.

Stubblefield says, “they were deleted on the computer and the files were recovered and kept against my knowledge for 7 months to basically use against me.”

Stubblefield, who’s been with Salem for a year, says the dark day he had when the story broke has turned into a positive…He says he’s received support from all over the country but he still wants to make this clear.

“Watch what you do today because it could haunt you tomorrow. Just make sure you are as accountable as you can be for your actions at all times,” says Stubblefield.

A 16-year-old male has been detained following an intensive investigation into a brutal attack on an off-duty deputy with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office on the evening of Saturday, December 10th.  After the deputy was assaulted and seriously injured at a gas station in the Porter area, MCSO detectives released still photos of two males they believe were involved.  One of the males could be seen wearing a distinctive shirt depicting two raised palms and the words “DON’T SHOOT.”  The males quickly fled the scene in a red pickup truck which had been reported stolen in Houston the day before.  Officers with the Houston Police Department subsequently located that truck on Monday.  MCSO detectives have also learned the identities of two individuals believed to be involved in the attack, and warrants have been issued for their arrest.


Montgomery County Attorney J D Lambright stated, “Following the recovery of the truck and the discovery of several witnesses through Crime Stoppers, the Sheriff’s Office identified a 16-year-old male suspect and contacted our office.  We assisted them in preparing a Directive to Apprehend, which is the equivalent of an arrest warrant in the juvenile system.” 

            Although he is prohibited by law from offering any specific remarks about the juvenile male taken into custody or the facts of the case, Lambright did note that the juvenile resides in Harris County and added, “This has been a recurring problem for Montgomery County.  The I-45 and I-59 corridors serve as attractive targets for Harris County youth who want to commit a crime in the suburbs and then make a quick escape home.”
             Mr. Lambright reported that his office has dealt with similar situations in multiple cases since he took office in January 2013.  “In some instances we have committed those Harris County youth to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department, and in others we have certified them to stand trial as adults.  It is our policy to send a clear, strong message that we will not tolerate this kind of conduct from any youth, regardless of where they live, and we know we must remain vigilant to prevent Montgomery County from being seen as an attractive target for criminals from neighboring jurisdictions.  Protecting our residents is of paramount importance in my office, and we take that obligation very seriously.”

On December 8th, Judge Paul Damico, sitting judge in the 221st District Court of Montgomery County, sentenced New Caney mechanic Richard Earl Sisney to 10 years TDCJ for Aggregate Theft, pursuant to a plea agreement. The charges were based on thefts by Sisney due to car repair, restoration work, and sales to over 60 customers during a 30 year period from 1986 to 2015. The case(s) were investigated by the Montgomery County Auto Theft Task Force (ATTF), with assistance of the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office. The lead detective on the case was Alton Neeley with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department.

Sisney was arrested on a 2013 felony warrant which set forth various thefts from 22 separate customers. Following the execution of a search warrant on Sisney’s shop, located in New Caney, an additional 40 customers contacted ATTF to complain of Sisney’s business practices. Sisney initially posted bond, but the bond was set aside because of a customer who paid Sisney to restore his car, whibelongs. “ey was on bond. Although the customer paid Sisney in full upfront, the car was found at an upholstery shop, where the owner was waiting for Sisney to pay him to do the work. In November of 2015, former 9th District Judge Kelly Case released Sisney on a PR bond. Following Case’s resignation from the bench, the case(s) were transferred to Judge Lisa Michalk of the 221st District Court, who set the case for jury trial on October 31st, 2016. A few days before trial, Sisney pled guilty to the Aggregate Theft of over $200,000, for which he was sentenced to 10 years TDCJ, pursuant to plea agreement, on December 8th.

The 2013 felony complaint and warrant sets forth the scheme and course of conduct Sisney pursued to unlawfully appropriate money from customers during the 30 year period. Among the various ways in which Sisney would steal from customers included selling cars titled in other people’s names, promising to put engines and transmissions in vehicles that customers later found out were not put in the vehicles, and taking large sums of money upfront for vehicle restoration work that was never completed. In one case, a restoration customer who paid Sisney $37,000+ upfront found his vehicle at a shop in Crosby after Sisney refused to tell him where the vehicle was. The car was a complete shell. Sisney would also claim to do work on a car and would attempt to or would obtain a mechanic’s lien and title to the car after the customer balked on payment for work that Sisney never completed. In another case, Sisney obtained a mechanic’s lien and title on 2 cars that had been reported stolen approximately 7 years before. He restored one of the vehicles and sold it to a buyer in Australia for $75,000. As the car sat on a dock in Los Angeles, California, waiting to be shipped to Australia, the car was seized by law enforcement after ATTF put a hold on it due to the car being reported as stolen.
Sisney’s practice of stealing from customers would usually begin by “inducing” them to part with their money by promising to perform certain tasks on their vehicles. He would do this by holding himself out as a credible businessmanand mechanic who was capable of virtually any task in car repair. After the customers parted with their money, Sisney would then enter into the “delay and excuse” phase of his scheme. When customers would ask why the work on a vehicle hadn’t been done, Sisney would provide excuses such as “we had a snowstorm”, “Hurricane Ike came to town”, “I haven’t been feeling well”, “I have title to the car in a vault at my bank”, etc. The customer would eventually demand their money back, at which time Sisney entered the “confrontation” phase. During this phase, he would threaten them physically, or would tell them to go ahead and sue him because he had better lawyers. He would also tell various customers that he has powerful friends and friends in high places in Montgomery County. Some customers did successfully sue Sisney, but were unable to collect on their judgments, due in part to Sisney filing for bankruptcy protection, which he did on 3 separate occasions and due in part to find assets in Sisney’s possession to execute on to satisfy the judgment.
Chief Prosecutor Jim Prewitt: “Finally, justice was achieved for the countless number of victims ripped off by Richard Sisney. Sisney was the definition of a con man and cared nothing about fair and legal business practices or a genuine desire to do the right thing for his customers. We are glad to see him finally admit his wrongdoing and go to prison where he belongs
