Criminal District Attorney Cory Crenshaw announced today that Jefferson County resident Richard Hernandez, 53, has been found guilty by a Jefferson County jury of two counts of failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements. The trial was held in the Criminal District Court, Judge John Stevens, Jr., presiding over the course of two days.
One certainly would not want their life’s deeds or career judged entirely on what was found on the Internet. Yet, it is hard to imagine how an ex-assistant district attorney for Jefferson County could spend 24 years on the public payroll and have only one story online that mentions his name.
While we harbor no disrespect for the Wall Street Journal who called us “that scrappy little paper from Southeast Texas,” we prefer to think of ourselves as simple seekers of the truth. We’re of the opinion that headlines and sound bites never tell the whole story. Our readers demand all the facts, facets and flavors of every story or event. And, they expect to be informed, educated and stirred to action.
