Another Houston employee has been arrested for allegedly crossing the line with a student…
The latest is 38 year old Mauricio Mendoza who works at Hartman Middle School in HISD.
Mendoza was taken into custody Wednesday by HISD police and charged with aggravated assault of a child under 14.
Sources tell the Factor that 13 year old female student is now claiming she is pregnant by her former teacher…
However, it would take a DNA test after the child is born to prove that.
Mendoza has bonded out of the Harris County jail!
HISD Statement: The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has accepted criminal charges against a former HISD employee following an HISD Police investigation into reports that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with a student while working at Hartman Middle School.
Mauricio Mendoza was arrested Wednesday and charged with sexual assault of a child. He is no longer employed with the district.
The allegations were first reported to school officials in December at which time he was removed from the campus and an internal investigation began. The administration also notified HISD Police and Children’s Protective Services (CPS) of the allegation. Police conducted a lengthy and thorough investigation, which they concluded this month. Police presented findings from their investigation to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, which accepted criminal charges.
Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Investigators need the public’s assistance identifying the suspect(s) responsible for the shooting death of 21-year-old Reginald Thomas JR in north Harris County, Texas.
On August 10, 2016 , at approximately 9:14 p.m., Harris County Precinct 4 Constables responded to a call for service at an apartment complex located at 19000 block of Kenswick Drive in Humble, Texas.
Family members became concerned after not hearing from .

Anyone with information on the murder of Reginald Thomas JR is urged to call the Harris county Sheriff’s Office Homicide unit at 713-755-9100.
Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and/or arrest of the suspect in this case. Information may be reported by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org.

Deputies and Detention officers with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will have a new look starting April of 2017. The men and women of the Sheriff’s Office will be transitioning from the traditional tan and blue uniform to a standardized navy blue utility uniform for enforcement functions and a standardized grey-blue uniform for detention functions. Paying tribute to former Montgomery County Sheriff Tommy Gage, elements of the traditional uniform will be maintained within the agencies’ Honor Guard function.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is making this change for several reasons. Most significant is that the new high-quality uniforms are cost efficient, both in the near and long term. Few law enforcement agencies, in this modern era, wear special-order tan uniforms. Additional costs and added delivery time were incurred by having red epaulets and pant stripes sewn on. These new uniforms are durable, functional, readily available, and an important part of an ongoing effort to promote the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office as team and community oriented.
The new uniforms also boast a new agency patch featuring a simplified design that will modernize its look. This new patch features a traditional five-point Texas star under “SHERIFF” in capital letters. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office set out to design an emblem that our public could easily identify while showing pride in our community and rich history – indicating the County’s founding date of 1837. This patch accomplishes those goals.
At about three sets of uniforms per employee, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office stands to save approximately $36,000 with this change. Not to mention a significant amount of time gained in not having to wait weeks for a special-order uniform to be delivered. These new uniforms, while sharp-looking, are simply plug-and-play with readily available stock.
Residents can also expect to see a sleek, definitive, new patrol vehicle graphics design. This new graphics package is being applied only on new vehicles entering the fleet, at a savings of $62 per vehicle. However, the old graphics package will stay on current patrol vehicles nearing the end of their services life, as not to incur any unnecessary costs.
The Department of Public Works has finally changed the speed limit signs on the very troubled Parker road in north Houston.
Residents say cars have been speeding on a curve on Parker at Clark roads and then crashing into multiple homes.
Those who live in the area say they want the city to post four way stop signs.
However, city officials say the stop signs would only lead to more accidents so they reduced the speed on the street instead.
DPW workers posted the new signs taking the speed limit from 35 to 30 this week in the area.
A 45-year-old woman has been indicted on multiple charges in a scheme to steal money from a local program funded with federal money designed to improve air quality in our area, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez.
Shonda Renee Stubblefield, of Houston, is considered a fugitive and a warrant remains outstanding for her arrest. Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to contact the Department of Transportation – Office of Inspector General at 1-800-424-9071 or via email at email@example.com.
The 10-count indictment charges Stubblefield with theft of public money, two counts of mail fraud, four counts of wire fraud, two counts of money laundering by spending criminal proceeds and aggravated identity theft.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is an agency within of the Department of Transportation that supported state and local governments in the design, construction and maintenance of the nation’s highway system through financial and technical assistance. FHWA administered the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program which provided funding to areas that faced challenges attaining and maintaining national ambient air quality standards for ozone, carbon monoxide and/or particulate matter.
The FHWA entered into a contract with the Texas Department of Transportation (TX DOT) to provide federal money to reduce traffic congestion and improve the air quality in Texas. TX DOT then contracted with the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) which provided financial incentives to companies that participated in a regional telework program designed to improve air quality in our area by reducing traffic congestion through single vehicle travel.
The indictment alleges Stubblefield was the owner of World Corporation Inc. and participated in that federally-funded telework program. She allegedly stole approximately $126,000 from the CMAQ program by submitting invoices and employee timesheets that falsely documented her participation in the program. The indictment alleges Stubblefield provided false and fraudulent bank records, match documents and a fictitious client list to H-GAC as part of her fraud scheme.
The indictment includes a potential forfeiture and a money judgement for the $126,000.
If convicted of either theft of public money or money laundering by spending criminal proceeds, she faces up to 10 years in federal prison. The possible punishment for a conviction of mail fraud and wire fraud is a maximum of 20 years in prison. She also faces an additional mandatory and consecutive 24 months upon conviction of aggravated identity theft. All charges also carry a possible $250,000 maximum fine.
The Department of Transportation – Office of Inspector General conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Julie Redlinger is prosecuting the case.
You can call it a sad day at the University of Houston.
Throughout the day students have been stopping and paying their respects to an unofficial mascot.
That animal is a white tailed squirrel that has been seen on the campus for the last six years.
The squirrel was found dead on campus this week and since that time memorials have popped up on campus and the school even sent out a tweet mourning his loss.
The squirred was never given a name but he was considered fun, friendly, and brave.
One person says the little animal would walk up to any human and beg for food.
Little squirrel you will be missed even though I didn’t get a chance to know ya!
The case is related to an engaging in organized crime arrest when rappers Wall and Bash were taken into custody during an appearance at a Houston smoke shop back in December!
