Prosecutor Gives No-Prison Plea Deal To Gunman Accused Of Shooting 3 People

Clayton Brown with spend no time in jail for allegedly shooting three people in two separate attacks.

Houston, TX – Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg’s office has cut yet another sweetheart deal with a violent criminal to help him avoid serving any time in prison.

Career criminal Clayton Brown, an offender with a “lengthy, violent criminal history,” was arrested in 2018 for shooting two people at a Houston block party, Houston Police Officers’ Union (HPOU) President Joe Gamaldi announced last Tuesday.

One of his victims was a 15-year-old girl.

Brown was released on bond, but ended up back in custody a short while later for shooting yet another person, Gamaldi said.

“Now you would think DA Kim Ogg and her office would throw the book at him,” the union president noted on social media. “You would be wrong.”

In exchange for Brown’s guilty plea in one of the shootings, Ogg agreed to “dismiss two cases, then gave him deferred adjudication [no jail time] on the third,” Gamaldi railed.

Despite having been arrested and charged for having shot three people in two separate incidents, Brown was allowed to plead guilty to only one “and received no jail time,” he added.

“With shootings occurring daily in our community, the DA owes the public an explanation,” Gamaldi wrote. “An explanation as to why she is weak on criminals who commit violent crimes with guns and show no regard for human life.”

“This madness has to stop,” he added.

During an interview with KRIV on Tuesday, the HPOU president reiterated his belief that Ogg needs to be removed from office, regardless as to whether it was her or one of the attorneys in her office who brokered Brown’s plea deal.

“The buck stops with her,” Gamaldi said. “She’s the boss. She’s the elected district attorney of Harris County.”

He noted that Ogg “laid off 39 of her most experienced prosecutors” when she first took over as district attorney, and that 100 more people have either resigned or been fired since then.

“That kind of tumultuous environment breeds bad decision making,” Gamaldi argued. “So, now you have DAs that maybe aren’t experienced cutting these sweetheart deals. And this isn’t the only one!”

The community should be “outraged” that so many violent offenders are being released into the community with little-to-no jail time, he said.

“No mistake – we absolutely want her gone, Houston police officers want her gone,” Gamaldi reiterated.

Ogg’s office blasted Gamaldi for speaking out about the multitude of cases where violent offenders have been allowed to walk free, he said.

“You know what they said today? It’s not my place to criticize the district attorney,” Gamaldi told KRIV. “Well, with all due respect, I’m the elected representation of the 5,200 brave men and women who put a uniform on every single day to protect this community. It is absolutely our place to question the decision-making of the district attorney here in Harris County.”

Furthermore, local law enforcement officers are also citizens of the very community that is being placed at risk, he added.

“We’re members of this community. We love this community and we care about it,” Gamaldi said. “We don’t want to see people getting shot dead in the streets because the DA keeps letting them out.”

Harris county had become a Democrat cesspool. Kim Ogg a lesbian liberal Democrat is too busy prosecuting police officers to bother with keeping criminal locked up. Straight party voting swept liberal judges into power and violent crime is out of control. County officials are more concerned with protecting illegal aliens than actually running the county. It's a huge mess

This is especially true with black defendants like Clayton Brown. They go easy on black defendants to, in their minds, make up for past injustice, and they call it "criminal justice reform"

There are multiple other cases of this covered by Colin Flaherty on Minds.com and several other places. To quote the article, "This Madness has to stop!" If they [sjw's ] are going to let people go who have shot people, what are they going to do to a fella that just like, ya know, rapes and robs a person?

Kim Ogg is a criminal too. she should be held responsible for these criminals she let's loose on society. We can only hope karma visits her in the worst way possible!

Yet Houstons mayor gives the keys to the city and honors nasty vile foul degrading rapper Travis Scott as a role model. It's all demented.

Sounds like vigilante justice is now the course to be taken if justice is to be served. What the heck, no one goes to prison with Ogg in charge, go for it.

The left is always screaming about too many guns, gun violence, etc. We have so much gun violence because they won’t keep these ass-wipes in jail.

Unfortunately (for Houston), it's not just the ultra-liberal District Attorney, Ogg, that is the problem: the police chief, Art Acevedo is just as radical as Ogg. Google "Art Acevedo" and "liberal" and read some of the stories about him. He's anti-gun/Second Amendment; pro sanctuary cities; he doesn't have his officers' backs; etc.

Absolutely unbelievable. I find it hard to believe any Prosecutor would do this to the citizens they've sworn to uphold. She needs to be recalled and the Chief of Police replaced. The law abiding citizens have got to band together to work towards their ouster. I'm certain Sam Houston would roll over in his grave if he could see what his namesake has become.

It helps with their gun control policy, take our guns away and give them to gang bangers.

HERE is the problem in a nutshell. Anyone who attempts to take the life of another merits incarceration until they die. If that taking of human life is particularly heinous, they merit that death as soon as humanly possible.

I have seen people get stiff sentences for shoplifting food so they could feed their families. I have seen addicts get stiff sentences for well, being addicts and caught with paraphernalia. In my state, thank goodness, some of the stiffest penalties have been for violent crimes, but I don't live in Texas. This is a joke!

People also need to understand that a portion of this miscarriage of justice needs to be placed on the judge. They have the final say on sentencing and can choose accept the recommendation of the DA/prosecutor or not, because that is all it is, a recommendation. If it makes it through the court and so ordered by the judge, then they both have some answering to do to the public.

Another bleeding heart, hug-a-thug, liberal, so called DA "working hard" to keep dangerous criminals out of jail. Pathetic. Should be fired.

She is owned by America hater George Soros. He is funding ultrasoft liberal DAs all over the nation. Wake the hell up USA. Someone send that old bastard to hell where he belongs.

Why even bother arresting criminals, if the DAs are just going to have revolving door prisons?

++++++++++++++++++++++The buck stops with the citizens of Houston. When you turn your City over to a bunch of left wing Democrats, expect the worst. Houston, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, no longer resemble the Texas I grew up in. When things get bad enough, maybe the citizens will start voting like Texans again? My condolences to the rank and file POlice Officers who have to work in those places.
