Dam Golvach buried his son in early February. Now he feels victimized again.

Spencer Golvach was the victim of a brutal crime spree committed by a single criminal who was living in the Houston area even though he had been deported four times. Spencer was gunned down at a traffic light, one of four people shot by Victor Reyes before he was killed by a Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy.

On March 9th the Texas Legislature honored Spencer’s death with a somber resolution. At the same time, the Houston Police and Harris County Sheriff’s office have all but ignored pleas for information from the Golvach family.

“The Sheriff had time to go to Austin to testify against efforts to identify these illegal criminals, but he doesn’t have time to meet with me. Houston Police refuse to show me what they have done to investigative Victor Reyes”, says Golvach.

Dolcefino Consulting has been assisting Golvach in his search for answers, exposing Reyes as a serial violator of a border that is not keeping deported criminals from returning. Both the Houston Police and Harris County Sheriff have refused to release records of their investigation, even though both Golvach and Reyes are deceased.

“This is an insult to the Golvach family and to all Houstonians”, says Dolcefino Consulting President Wayne Dolcefino.
Golvach is now demanding a face to face meeting with Police Chief Charles Mclelland and Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia.

“I want them to look me in the eye and tell me why I cannot see what they have done to find about the cockroach that killed my son. My family deserves this small courtesy. Instead we are being victimized by their indifference”.
Golvach is available for media interviews and requests the public’s help in getting the answers Houston law enforcement are hiding from the public.

The Montgomery County Bar Association (MCBA) gives ten Scholarships to Montgomery County high school seniors. Over the last several months, MCBA Scholarship Applications were sent to all high schools in Montgomery County, Texas. Over 50 high school senior students/candidates submitted applications.

The MCBA Scholarship Committee then narrowed the applications to 14 candidates. These 14 candidates were then interviewed by the
Scholarship Committee over several days. At the conclusion of the interviews, the Committee awarded ten $1,000
scholarships to ten different students. When the students receive their first 2015-16 college tuition bill, the MCBA will
mail a check to their College or University.

The MCBA scholarship awards were based on academics, extra-curricular activities, community service, financial
need, and interest in pursuing a career in the legal field (although not a requirement). Those receiving the scholarships
are:

Amy Sharp, Oak Ridge High School
Alejandra Cadena, Magnolia West High School
Kennedy Saavedra, The Woodlands High School
Anni Blair, College Park High School
Isabell Lanata, The Woodlands High School
Jacqueline Chambers, Caney Creek High School
Yessica Colin, Willis High School
Emily Deptula, Oak Ridge North High School
Chandler Shannon, Willis High School
Alejandro Cruz, Porter High School

The MCBA is organized and shall be operated exclusively for charitable, educational, and other non-profit
purposes. The MCBA not only represents the interests of attorneys, but also represents all of the good that attorneys
can be. Few bar associations surpass the community outreach efforts of the MCBA. Through scholarships, charitable
fundraising, Law Day education programs, food drives, and other programs, the MCBA is a vital part of the growth of this
great county.

Sara Forlano (MCBA President): “We are very excited to give these scholarships to some outstanding high school
seniors. We received some really great applications this year and it was very difficult to narrow the field to ten
candidates. We are confident that the candidates chosen will achieve great success in their future academic
endeavors.”

Press Release: Dorothy Renay Holman-Williams pled guilty on February 11, 2015 to Driving While Intoxicated 3rd or More in the 9th District Court of Montgomery County, Texas. On April 30, 2015, Judge Kelly Case held a hearing to determine the punishment in the case and ultimately sentenced Holman-Williams to probation.

Testimony during a sentencing hearing showed that on December 13, 2013, Holman-Williams was driving erratically on Interstate 45 causing other citizens to call 911 to report her dangerous driving. She was stopped by Officer Brett Irvine of the Conroe Police Department. Officer Irvine observed an open alcohol flask next to the driver seat.

Holman-Williams stumbled getting out of the vehicle and smelled of alcohol. She admitted to drinking three 18 ounce beers and then refused to perform the standardized field sobriety tests when asked by Officer Irvine. Holman-Williamsalso refused to provide a sample of her blood, requiring Officer Irvine to seek a blood search warrant.

Her blood was tested and her blood alcohol concentration was confirmed at a 0.201. Because of two prior DWI convictions, Holman-Williams was charged with the 3rd degree felony offense of Driving While Intoxicated 3rd or More.

During the punishment hearing, the State admitted into evidence three separate “penitentiary packets” of judgments and records detailing how Holman-Williams had been sentenced to prison on three prior occasions prior to committing this offense. These prison records were admitted into evidence without objection from Holman-Williams’s attorney during the sentencing hearing. In 1987, Holman-Williams was sentenced to four years in prison for Possession of a Controlled Substance. In 1991, Holman-Williams was sentenced to seven years in prison for Possession of a Dangerous Drug.

In 1992, Holman-Williams was sentenced to 20 years in prison for Possession of a Controlled
Substance. Holman-Williams also had two previous convictions for DWI on August 28, 2005 and on March 6, 2009, making this DWI arrest a third degree felony. In the hearing, Holman-Williams admitted to all of these prior charges and sentences.

Under Texas law, if a person has at least two prior trips to prison, and they are charged with another felony offense (3rd degree or higher), their minimum range of punishment is 25 years to life in prison. In addition, if a deadly weapon is used during the commission of the offense, a Judge cannot sentence a person to a probation sentence but, must assess a term in prison. Therefore, in this case, Holman-Williams’s range of punishment was 25 years to life in
prison.

However, at the conclusion of the punishment hearing, Judge Case decided: 1) to disregard the clear evidence of Holman-Williams’s felony history and her own admissions to the prior prison trips; and 2) that the motor vehicle was not a deadly weapon. Based on these determinations, Judge Case sentenced Holman-Williams to 10 years probation.

Holman-Williams will be released from jail in 10 days.

First Assistant Phil Grant: “Judge Case had absolutely no basis for totally disregarding clear evidence and self-admissions of Holman-Williams’ prior prison sentences. Based on her criminal history, she should have been sentenced to at least 25 years in prison. Notwithstanding this sentencing, our office will press forward with our mission to remove repeat felony offenders from our community.”

A criminal complaint charging three Galveston residents has been unsealed alleging they engaged in a conspiracy to traffic minors for sexual purposes and financial gain, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson.

The criminal complaint was filed under seal April 21, 2015, and charges Charles Devan Fulton Sr., 39, Charmell Potts, 32, and Dominque Warner, 23. It was unsealed in Galveston federal court today as Warner was ordered into custody pending further criminal proceedings. Potts was previously ordered into custody where she will also remain. Fulton is considered a fugitive and a warrant remains outstanding for his arrest.

Fulton is alleged to have coerced several young females into prostitution. The victims were advertised on websites commonly known for publicizing commercial sex. The complaint further alleges that Fulton would not rent rooms himself; therefore, Potts and Warner would do so at area hotels to use for prostitution involving the young girls. The complaint also alleges Warner would drive the girls to the locations, wait until they were finished, then drive them back to Fulton’s residence in Galveston. Potts also drove the girls and would keep some of the monies earned, according to the complaint. Fulton would allegedly keep the remainder of all of the monies the victims earned.

A reward of up to $5000 is being offered by the FBI and Crime Stoppers for information that leads to the arrest of Fulton.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000 or call Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477). Text TIP610 plus your tip to CRIMES (274637) or visit www.crime-stoppers.org. All tipsters remain anonymous.

It’s week #2 and a Sugar Land company where five employees were exposed to radiation is still closed and the workers remain at home.

It was last week when we first told you Thermo Fisher Scientific was abruptly shutdown after some employees were exposed to radiation. 

A spokesperson for the company said the building would open in a week.  That has not happened as of yet. 

Christine Mann with the Texas Health Department says her agency is overseeing the decontamination effort at the building.  Mann says several employees have been brought back to the building to determine their radiation exposure level. 

The workers have also been told to bring in their clothes and shoes that may have come into contact with the powder substance that poses a threat according to Mann.  She says the facility with about 140 workers will not be reopened until the state is satisfied.

The Sugar Land site manufactures gauging devices used in the oil and petrochemical industries.
Thermo Fisher released the following statement:

The facility remains closed while third-party experts test for, characterize and remove any remaining radiological contamination from the site.
