This Promise program was doomed to fail. Schools aren't equipped to deal with criminals. A poorly conceived plan to alter stats and hide the truth.

43 weeks ago by Steve Tyler for District AttorneyLiberal ideas concerning low or taxpayer subsidized bond, decriminalization, diversion instead of punishment, liberal limits on probation and parole revocation ... green lights for criminals to commit crime with impunity and leads to higher crime rates in more liberal municipalities. Who stands for the law, who stands with the citizen, the taxpayer and victim?

46 weeks ago by Steve Tyler for District AttorneyFor your weekend reading, more proof from the Texas Supreme Court that my opponent is either unethical or doesn't know the law, or both. During her time as a traffic court judge (municipal judge) for the City of Victoria, my opponent continued working as a criminal defense attorney in Victoria. Common sense and the Texas Supreme Court both say you can't work as a judge and a criminal defense attorney in the same place at the same time. The brief attached Supreme Court opinions go so far as to say an attorney shouldn't even give the appearance of doing something like this, much less do it. You can imagine the surprise of our local police officers coming to court and being cross-examined by a criminal defense attorney who earlier that week those police had been working with as a judge. As ironic as this might sound, it's also quite serious. In her role with the city, my opponent had the authority to sign warrants for cases like DWIs...when much of her criminal defense business is defending those charged with DWI. Also all her rulings concerning Texas law were subject to appeal in those same County Courts in which she practiced criminal defense. Imagine her as a traffic court judge signing a DWI blood test warrant for a young police officer...and the next time that officer sees her, she's in court defending the person she signed the warrant on, and attacking the police officer and the warrant. While the cops were catching the criminals, she was cashing the criminal's checks as a defense attorney. There's an old story about the fox guarding the hen house that I think you know without me re-telling it. For whatever reason the local media continues to shy away from discussing this despite bringing these ethical issues up in every debate my opponent has shown up for (and please check out Thursday's forum posted at http://www.crossroadstoday.com). So it's clearly time to bring it straight to the people online. Did my opponent act unethically while working for the City of Victoria? Did she break the law? Read what our Supreme Court says here, and you be the judge...46 weeks ago Steve Tyler for District Attorney 3

46 weeks ago by Steve Tyler for District AttorneyMY OPPONENT CLOSES HER EYES AND COVERS HER EARS TO THE TRUTH AND HAS EMPATHY ONLY FOR OFFENDERS. ACCORDING TO THE CDC:
Every day, 28 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This is one death every 51 minutes. The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $44 billion. In 2015, 10,265 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (29%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.46 weeks ago Steve Tyler for District Attorney

For all the trouble I went through, the letter I wrote endorsing Tyler went for naught. The Advocate policy is to prohibit such letters from anyone who does not live in the district. I'm posting it here in case you want to do something with it. You have my blessing and permission. - Patrick Hubbell I had the pleasure of meeting Steven Tyler when he was serving as an assistant district attorney. He had come to the high school to deliver a subpoena for me to testify in court. Here’s the background: Twenty years ago during the first week of school, a student with anger management issues told me to go make love to myself, only not in those words. I caught one last glimpse of him as he shoved a cart with my overhead projector out of his way. One week later, his name was on the front page, arrested for murder. I called the district attorney’s office to offer my services in any way I could, providing some particulars on the miscreant’s conduct. He’s now serving 55 years with his brother. Thanks to Steven Tyler, two dangerous gang members are now turning big rocks into littler ones instead of roaming the streets in Victoria County. Patrick Hubbell

46 weeks ago by Steve Tyler for District AttorneyGovernment Accountability Office (GAO) report, which finds that only 18 of 32 drug courts — or just over 50% — showed statistically significant reductions in recidivism among participants. That is, almost half of drug courts do not reduce re-arrest rates of their participants below the rates of people who went through the normal criminal justice process. https://www.huffingt...r_b_1151533.html
46 weeks ago by Steve Tyler for District AttorneyAfter 25 years of drug court experience in the United States, a substantial body of evidence suggests that these courts can do more harm than good. First, drug courts should ideally be working very closely with health professionals, who would make medical decisions about the nature and duration of treatment. But many accounts from across the country indicate that drug court judges are often swayed more by their own sometimes uninformed prejudices about treatment than by the views of clinicians. https://www.opensoci...iction-treatment
46 weeks ago by Steve Tyler for District AttorneyAnd yet there is more and has been for some time. Common sense tells you people are motivated by real consequences. Did Mosses' present of the commandments stop all sin?

Takes care of kids ? Not my daughter who was hit by a drug using teen that passed out while driving and crashed into her. After several surgeries to reconstruct her face that had been shattered by the wreck.....the driver was never charged. Maybe the kids he takes care of that you refer to in your add are his own kind ?46 weeks ago Steve Tyler for District Attorney
Names and date?46 weeks ago
That fact pattern is unfamiliar. Was it here? Did law enforcement submit a case? What is suspect and victim’s names as well as the date and location? I’ll be more than glad to go over the case in public or my office.46 weeks ago
He made deals with gang members who kill a 6 yr boy and most of them are,already out of prisons some only served 3 yrs I would at least asked for life in prison they had no reason to kill that boy46 weeks ago 2
That case was before I was elected. The primary defendant will spend the rest of his life in prison on those charges and cases that I brought him back for further prosecution on.46 weeks ago
The canchola boy was kill in 2003 by a guy you know as loco if you look up Joe Mendoza read the article look at your web site and hopefully you'll understand my piont46 weeks ago
Richard Flores, come pickup a copy of his judgements and sentences. He was prosecuted during Dexter’s term by Dexter. I was not sworn in to office until January 1, 2007. True I prep’ed the case and coordinated investigations for it before I left the Office on June 2, 2004 but I did not prosecute any of the Canchola cases, nor have I said I did. You understand I am Steve Tyler not M.P. Dexter Eaves. You have no point because you are wrong. Are you related to the guy that Loney attempted to kill standing over and shooting multiple times (all misses). I prosecuted Loney in the fall of 2003 and Dexter sat with me at trial.46 weeks ago
Richard Flores, Prosecution of the Canchola boy’s murder was before I took office. Only one defendant involved in the Conchola’s boy murder was prosecuted for separate offenses (cold cases) by my office, me. The Canchola Murder case was a joint operation between local, state and federal investigators and prosecutors. You either are unaware of the specifics or you are deliberately misrepresenting what you know.46 weeks ago
Richard Flores, I’m not upset. Text read different than the spoken word sounds. I added 40 years and additional murder convictions that will ensure he never paroles. In the cases I prosecuted, Joe Mendoza did not commit a capital murder so was not eligible for death. The deal was based on what evidence and witnesses were available on a 10+ year old case. I understand your sentiments. We have never as an office won an animal cruelty case, juries just disagree with that law. We will try again with a guy that broke into a home and beat several dogs to death with a bat. If the jury acquits then it’s clear no facts would be enough.46 weeks ago
I am related to a nephew who lonely killed according to people that were thier I am not upset about any of that or even when you tried to convict my dad of animal cruelty and just to ease your mind I have still voted for you but for some reason you made a deal with Joe Mendoza which I feel strongly should have been put to death

47 weeks ago by Steve Tyler for District AttorneyI am aware of recent concerns for student safety since the Florida School shooting. I have pledged all of my staff and office assets to assist the Sheriff if he should require any of my resources for his office’s SRO program or response teams. I am also aware that at one or more of our local campuses particular students have been the focuses of questions following reports of their behavior and comments suggesting they had violent intents toward their respective student bodies. I have confidence in my Sheriff, his staff and the educators and administrators of VISD. I do not say this lightly, I have one child and one wife; 100% of my immediate family and everything I live for is at a VISD School today. If I were to entrust them to anyone’s care but my own, then I could not have picked more able or dedicated people than those of the Sheriff's Office and VISD. The Victoria County Sheriff's Office will conduct a thorough investigation. If at the conclusion those officers have reason to believe, and actual belief of criminal conduct, then they will refer it to my office for prosecution. We will present the cases to a jury of Victorians. We have a reliable partnership between prosecution, law enforcement and VISD. We will be safe then we will be firm and fair. http://stevebtyler.com/47 weeks ago 2
Stephen Tyler my kids are scared to go to school today, and I don’t blame them. My daughter has a class with the boy in question and has had issues with him in the past. She has informed us that this boy is returning to school today. What steps are being taken to insure the safety of our kids? I understand the sole responsibility is not on your shoulders, but you are one of the only public officials that has chimed in on the issue. I think my biggest question is are you letting your daughter go to school today?47 weeks ago 1
Yes Sir, and I am positive that those parents are concerned as well. I am pretty sure the reduced census at Howell Middle School today will be a pretty good indication of those parents concerns. LIke I said in my original post, I understand that this not solely on your shoulders, and I am in no way indicating that you are neglecting any of your responsibilities. The purpose of my post was to reach out to a fellow parent of a Howell student. Since your position allows you a lot more access to those investigating the "rumors", I would have felt a lot more comfortable sending me kids to school if you were sending your daughter.47 weeks ago 1
He has class with lots of kids. One of the problems is the spread of false rumors which get people worried/ outraged and send law enforcement chasing false stories and wasting time and resources. VISD and the Sherriff have complete and sole control of school security. They have been working the problem. They do not normally share operational details because that could reduce the effectiveness.47 weeks ago 2
I am so glad to read this ....public school is become a scary place to drop your I kids off....and at times I feel VISD doesn't take some of the bullying serious.47 weeks ago 2
Although I have not made my decision,yet,BASHING your competitor serves NO purpose. Remember, YOU ran when YOU NEVER prosecuted a SINGLE case. It's better to list yor accomplishments and goals than to waste time and effort to belittle your opponent. This is just my honest opinion. I will continue to watch what transpires before voting day.47 weeks ago 6
No sir, I ran after having prosecuted many cases including many murder cases. Four years after passing the bar I had 10 + homicide convictions, multiple sex offense trials and Narcotics trials. I was an experienced prosecutor who paid my dues and did the work. In fact I had prosecuted in federal court before having passed the bar (as a supervised intern).

48 weeks ago by Steve Tyler for District AttorneyA Four-Tre-Crip's rein of terror ends with him going away for 60 years. Tough on crime is smart on crime and what the people (the boss) want. This is not what my opponent, defense attorneys, and the ACLU want. They are more concerned with a criminals self esteem and actualization than your or our community's safety. Do they live in safe neighborhoods, and do they care if you do?
A prosecutor is not a counselor. A prosecutor is sworn to uphold the law and protect the community.48 weeks ago 2
When did my occupation make me an enemy of the State?48 weeks ago
That’s not what is said. Whose interest do you represent the community’s or your defendant client’s best interest? Don’t say both because the ethical rules forbid representing the community (the State) and a defendant at the same time as their interest are in conflict.48 weeks ago
Straw man arguments. No one called you an enemy or a criminal or questioned if you had a family. You represent a defendant’s best interest only and seek a favorable outcome for that defendant; a prosecutor represents the community and their laws while seeking justice. The duties under the law, ethics rules and practice are as I described.48 weeks ago
I am a defense attorney who vigorously defends my client within the laws. I am also a parent, grabdparent and a member of this community. My job is essential to the process of justice, just like the District Attorney's. I am no one's enemy. I am a law abiding citizen. In the courtroom we are civilized adversaries doing our jobs. Of course I care about my community, my neighbors and our schools. I live here!
