Kendall County Criminal District Attorney Nicole Bishop and Sheriff Al Auxier sat down with senator Ted Cruz, Representative Chip Roy, and other experts for a roundtable discussion on the human costs of the border crisis and the toll it has taken on our communities. There was a great discussion about the invasive cartel activity in our country. Cartels are trafficking deadly fentanyl laced counterfeit pills that are killing our kids with one pill. These cartels are also committing atrocities against human beings right here in our country, and they are establishing and strengthening their networks across our country with little resistance from the federal government.

The CDA’s Office and the Sheriff’s Office are doing what we can to make sure we protect Kendall County from these organizations, and we are dedicated to upholding the rule of law in Kendall County.

ALVAREZ-RODRIGUEZ SENTENCED TO 40 YEARS IN PRISON FOR AGGRAVATED SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A CHILD

Geovanni Jesus Alvarez-Rodriguez was found guilty May 27, 2021, by a Kendall County jury for Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child. The child in this case, B.A. (initials used to protect the child victim’s identity), made an outcry to Kendall County Sheriff’s Investigator Anita Seamans that he was molested by Alvarez-Rodriguez, when B.A. was 9 – 10 years old. B.A. was forensically interviewed by an expert from the Kids’ Advocacy Place where B.A. disclosed that Alvarez-Rodriguez committed the offenses of aggravated s*xual assault of a child and indecency with a child. The child went into detail on the progression of the s*xual assaults by Alvarez- Rodriguez and pain suffered. Alvarez-Rodriguez later confessed to all the s*x acts with B.A. to Constable Brian Vaughan and Investigator Anita Seamans. After Alvarez-Rodriguez was arrested, B.A. later recanted his outcry and said he made it all up.

At trial, Special Victims Prosecutor Nick Socias put on evidence of the police investigation, the forensic interview of the child victim, the Defendant’s confession, and expert testimony. Investigator Anita Seamans testified regarding the extensive investigation into Alvarez-Rodriguez and aspects of child s*xual abuse. Also testifying were two members of local Children’s Advocacy Centers: Stephenie Cantu, the Program Director for Kids’ Advocacy Place, and Randy McGibney, the Chief Operating Officer of ChildSafe. Both provided expert testimony on the stages of disclosure, recantation, and statistics regarding child s*xual abuse. “About 1 in 4 children who disclose s*xual abuse will eventually recant” stated Cantu. “This is due to a number of reasons, most commonly being pressure from family members or the offender, but also stress from the judicial process, financial strain, wanting to return to the state of secrecy, etc.”

Sentencing began August 25th. Kendall County Probation Officer Mario Paredes testified that Alvarez- Rodriguez told him to "shut your mouth before I slap the [expletive deleted] out of you." Alvarez-Rodriguez testified that Kendall County is corrupt and his attorney, Alfonso Cabanas, asked for 5 years in prison. After the conclusion of all the testimony, Judge Kirsten Cohoon sentenced Alvarez-Rodriguez to 40 years in prison. The Defendant will have to serve at least half of that time before he is eligible for parole. The Defendant was transferred to federal custody where he awaits sentencing on additional charges.

STATEMENT FROM CRIMINAL DISTRICT ATTORNEY NICOLE S. BISHOP REGARDING NEW COUNTY COURT AT LAW

Recently signed into law by Governor Abbott, HB 3774 created a new county court at law for Kendall County. This new court is on the agenda for discussion at this coming commissioners’ court meeting on Monday, August 9, 2021. As a member of the Kendall County community and as your elected Criminal District Attorney, I will be in attendance, and I invite the public to attend this important public meeting.

I have had multiple inquiries about my involvement or the involvement of my office in the creation of this new county court at Law. The answer is simply that we have not been involved in any way.

We found out that the county would be seeking a new county court at law along with the general public at the April 12, 2021 Commissioners’ Court meeting when they voted to submit legislation to create the court. After learning this, my office requested a copy of the Commissioners’ Court resolution and proposed legislation.

No one from Commissioners Court spoke to me or anyone from my office about the agenda item, and we did not draft, consult on, nor see the proposed legislation prior to commissioners’ court. Furthermore, no Kendall County officials involved in creating the new court have asked for our opinion or advice on the matter at any time since.

The matter obviously affects the operation and planning for my office. The Criminal District Attorney's Office will have to allocate prosecutors, staff, and resources to carry out our duties in any new court. Therefore, while I have had zero involvement in any decisions related to the creation of the new court, I have certainly been actively seeking out any available information since becoming aware of it.

I am eager to hear what is hopefully an update about what is going on with the new County Court at Law, how the legislation creating it came to pass, an explanation for any last minute legislative changes, and what the plans are for the implementation of the new County Court at Law.

Criminal District Attorney Nicole Bishop is honored to announce that the District Attorney’s Office has selected 3 officers for criminal interdiction training. The funding for this training comes from funds seized from criminals in the course of committing felony offenses and subsequently awarded to the State through the work of the District Attorney’s Office.

The training for these officers is from a national organization dedicated to assisting officers in detecting skillfully concealed criminal offenses. The officers selected for the interdiction training, Trooper Josh Heath with the Texas Department of Public Safety, Officer Brandon Goudreau with the Boerne Police Department, and Deputy Justin Granado with the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office, were recommended by the agency administration and approved by a committee at the Criminal District Attorney’s Office. “Criminal interdiction is a vital part of effective law enforcement. With this additional training, we are opening up a new front to combat and intercept those in our county who are committing crimes, while ensuring our community stays safe.” said Katherine McDaniel, First Assistant Criminal District Attorney.
