Cherokee County Sheriff Deputy sentenced to 5 years for Indecency with a Child

As part of plea bargain, Cherokee County District Court doesn’t report the prison sentence of Sheriff Deputy molesting a local child.

Taking their cues from the Cherokee County District Attorney’s office and the 2nd Judicial District Court, East Texas media refuses to report the light sentencing of a local Sheriff Deputy convicted of child molestation during the time he was employed with the county. They published each phase of the case from his arrest to indictment. No reports that in March he accepted a plea bargain and is locked up in TDCJ. After reporting on the case for over 2 years, why would they not inform the public that a police officer was sitting in prison for Indecency with a Minor? Because he was given only 1 year for each count after a Change of Venue and Cherokee County sentenced him to probation. Pedophiles avoid prosecution by becoming Narcotics Task Force informants and stoolies for the district attorney’s office.

 

Local sex offenders serve on juries as insurance to keep district court cases from being overturned.

Jacksonville, TX:

Cherokee County Deputy Sergeant Jonathan Bryan Shobert was sentenced in March 2021 after his reported Indictment back in 2019 on 5 separate felony counts of Indecency with a Child By Contact.  His 5 year sentence was processed through the 64th District Court in the Panhandle and away from the prying eyes of the victim’s family. Deputy Shobert is eligible for parole in 2023. He had been in Cherokee County law enforcement since 2002.(Source: Daily Progress, Oct. 24, 2006) In fact he remained employed after being arrested by the Texas Rangers from incidents reported back in 2018. (Source: Daily Progress, Feb 14, 2019) Shobert will be under concurrent Deferred Adjudication as a Registered Sex Offender upon his early release, that way he can still be called for Cherokee County jury duty.
