MORE OFFICERS INDICTED IN HARDING STREET RAID!

Press Release: A Harris County grand jury indicted a Houston Police officer for murder, and five others who are or have served on the force, for engaging in organized criminal activity, as the result of an investigation touched off by a 2019 raid that killed two people in their home on Harding Street.
 
The six officers indicted Monday follow six others – for a total of 12 – including Gerald Goines and Steven Bryant, indicted last year for various felonies uncovered by a probe led by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office Civil Rights Division.
 
Dennis Tuttle, Rhogena Nicholas, and their dog, were shot to death in their home during a botched afternoon raid by members of Squad 15 of the Houston Police Department’s Narcotics Division.
 
“The consequences of corruption are that two innocent people and their dog were shot to death in their home by police; four officers were shot, one paralyzed, and now all of them will face jurors who will determine their fate,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said.
 
The investigation determined that Goines lied to a judge to obtain a “no knock” search warrant to raid the house, and that officers had been involved in a long-term scheme to steal overtime from the city.
 
The officers indicted Monday include:
 
Felipe Gallegos – (HPD) was indicted for murder in the death of Dennis Tuttle. The charge is a first-degree felony and carries a penalty of up to life in prison.
 
Other officers indicted on first-degree felonies Monday who face a maximum of life in prison if convicted are:

Nadeem Ashraf – (HPD) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($30,000 or more but less than $150,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (1st degree)
 
Two officers who were already facing charges were also indicted on first-degree felonies:

The following officers are charged with second-degree felonies. If convicted, they face 2 to 20 years in prison:
 
Frank Medina – (HPD) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($2,500 or more, but less than $30,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (2nd degree)
 
Griff Maxwell – (HPD) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($2,500 or more, but less than $30,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (2nd degree)
 
One officer who was charged last year was also indicted Monday on a second-degree felony:
 
Hodgie Armstrong – (No longer HPD, retired) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($2,500 or more, but less than $30,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (2nd degree)
