A System's Fatal Flaws

By Susan Carroll - November 16th, 2008 - Houston Chronicle

Miguel Mejia Rodriguez, 36, is locked up on the fifth floor of the San Jacinto Jail downtown, accused of raping and sodomizing a second-grader.

It is the fourth time in 12 years that Rodriguez, an unemployed drifter from Zacatecas, Mexico, has landed in Harris County Jail. Over the years, Rodriguez has served time for drug possession, theft, trespassing and indecent exposure. He told jailers he was in the country illegally in December 2006, after a security guard caught him touching himself in an apartment complex parking lot, records show.

But ICE officials did not file paperwork to detain Rodriguez. He was released after serving his 25-day sentence.

"I never lied about who I am, or where I'm from. I'm 100 percent Mexican," Rodriguez said in a jail interview with the Chronicle in September, after he was accused of the rape and sodomy of a 7-year-old.

According to court records, the girl told a friend Rodriguez started abusing her after her mother died in 2005, while he was living with her family.

The girl was hospitalized and treated for syphilis, court records show.

Judges are much more concerned with their power derived from "criminal" rights than they are with any risk or danger to the American people. This man, a clear predator who rapes young girls, has been freed THREE TIMES by the arrogant judiciary. HIS RIGHTS are of paramount concern to the American judiciary precisely because he is a criminal. The rights of our children mean absolutely nothing to these judicial scum.
