Elizabeth works only a bit because she’s often ill. Can’t get insurance because of a class 3 felony she’s not guilty of. Can’t afford the probation fee she’s forced to pay. Can’t pay the urine analysis she’s forced to pay. Rent and utility money is an issue, food money is an issue. I take care of those things for her when I can. The probation people know how she gets money to pay for things, the D.A knows how she gets money to pay for things, the judge knows how she has to get money to pay for things.
it’s five and one half years into a six year probation term. They have no evidence they have no proof. Her son was in posession not her. They were in the same car at the time. Opened and shut case to them. Ha.
Most people get off of these charges after three or four years. Why Liz is so lucky to still be on this ride?
Diabetes, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia. All expensive with no insurance.
I know this is just one story. There others in bad situations. I understand.
Does it bother anyone though?
Liz sent a letter to the presiding judge and the D.A. No reply.
I sent a request to change.org for a petition to send to the Attorney General of Texas. No reply from change.org.
I sent a message to a local T.V. station in Abilene to see if they thought Liz’s ordeal was a story. No reply.
Sean almost died in their custody. He complained of pain and fever. They took him to court instead. He had cancer. They delayed his treatment. If it wasn’t for a few programs, my money and some good doctors, Sean would be dead.
He finally got to a halfway house. Of course you have to give them anything you make for rent and your probation. He wanted to give his mother some money because she is living from hand to mouth. Now he’s in jail for another six months.
Her story is here also.
August 15, 2016.
Another meeting with the judge, another kick in the head.
Why didn’t he mention the mandatory drug class a few months ago when Liz had a formal meeting with him? A three month class. No details really. He says Liz agreed to it when she was released on probation in 2012. She has no paperwork from that time.
Liz has to get by for another three more months before the judge will consider letting her off of probation. Since her last meeting with the judge she has lost part of her left foot to diabetes. Her pain and suffering mean nothing to judge wheeler. No caps for him. No respect for him. If she had a lawyer; maybe she could fight his mean justice.
More to follow.
We finally got to a point where Liz’s probation fees were all caught up. I helped her pay almost $400 to get a meeting to decide if she could finally get an early release from probation. However nothing is easy with Judge Wheeler in Abilene.He doesn’t care that she has untenable expenses trying to fulfill the requirements of probation and health and living needs. When on probation you are required to have phone and a place to live, with an address, where they can come and scoop you up if you violate your agreement. By agreement I mean pay probation fees on time and never miss a meeting with your probation officer and not fail a urine analysis (which you also have to pay for). Those expenses alone would be a burden on a probationer who can find a decent job and/or a family willing and able to assist. Liz isn’t that fortunate.
What is wrong with you Judge Wheeler? Have you no sympathy for her situation. She has had to have surgeries to resolve infections left from a spider bite, She was finally diagnosed with diabetes after she was not able to heal from the previous surgeries, she has had to have surgery to alleviate symptoms of Cushing’s disease.
I have spent many thousands of dollars to give Liz a chance at getting by from day to day. It is way past time for her to be free of this judge and his government cronies. Anyone with a heart should be able to see that Liz has suffered more than anyone should when she was only trying to help her son with his drug addiction.

illness nor not, you can fall to your knees and beg to God. to any one. …yet there is no help for the avg earning American. which means, there is no help for this illness …
