Welcome to JA and thank you for your question. It will be my pleasure to assist you. My apologies I just was provided the link for your question. Let me take a look at your attachments and we can continue.

Thank you for attaching the documents they are enormously helpful. This a typical example of petty local politics. I don't mean to sound like I am diminishing the nightmare you went through I am sure this just adds insult to injury.

There are two ways to handle this and one is having an Attorney that works with local municipality send the Sheriff a cease and desist letter. You would want an Attorney that is well connected with local politics an municipal as they will not stop until they feel you may actually take action.

If you file a restraining order the Sheriff's office serves this on themselves and they have legal counsel to handle the matter on their behalf.

What might open their eyes is filing an actual lawsuit against the municipality including the Sheriff. You will need an Attorney. Please give me a few moments to provide a link for local Attorneys that provide FREE consultations that will address the harassment an constitutional issues.

I would also report this to the State Attorney General as a public corruption matter. One moment please for that link.

"Special Investigations

The Special Investigations Unit responds to a variety of law enforcement challenges throughout the state. The Unit investigates a wide variety of cases, including violent crimes and white-collar crimes, such as fraud cases, public corruption matters, and Election Code violations." https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/cj/criminal-investigations

You would also file a complaint against the Sheriff's Office with Internal Affairs. Internal Affairs acts independently from the Sheriff's Office.

wow ... thank you so much ... my husband and father (actual legal owner of the property) have discussed in great length about filing harassment and possibly a law suit due to the enormous amount of problems the environmental department has been causing us .. with being arrested we lost a $3000.00 job .. and now some of our customers are wanting to cancel service because they don't want to be a part of the "problem" ... we have even had people lie about why we were arrested ... we live in a very small community less than 1000 people in my town and less than 30,000 in the county they have been throwing crap against the wall and seeing what sticks on that day and then sending out the sheriff's office to "investigate" ... which usually ends up being a ... hey Donnie or Ginny ... fix this or that .. and then they move on - for almost 2 years now ... I have normally been able to fight them off with complying to every request and demand they have put on me even though they are not doing the same to my next door neighbor who owns a mechanic shop and his property is much worse than mine could ever be with all the oil and batteries laying around ..
I have fenced my entire yard with a privacy fence and I still can not seem to get them to leave me alone ... but this went too far ... my husband and myself had to spend 2 days in jail ... they said it was because the judge that was magistrating people the first day was afraid of a conflict of interest due to the fact that he and my husband are friends and went to school together ... crap ... I say ... so we had to wait for a judge from matagorda to come in when she felt like it .. because I guarantee that no one called her to have her come in .... plus I have requested a copy of the warrant and the complaint from the sheriff's office and they advised that the warrant went back to the court and they couldn't give me any copies of the documents??? I did ask about that and received the open records act website from another adviser .. but this is crazy and it's making me loose my mind ... I don't know who to complain to ... cause it seems that we are not getting a fair shake on ANY of these situations ... I'm looking at getting a lawyer from houston that deals in illegal dumping cases and enviornmental issues .. I have an appointment with him tomorrow at noon ... do you have any questions that I should be asking him in particular that can help me with making sure I get the right counsel?

You want the Attorney to tell you how he plans to handle this matter. You will be able to tell from his "plan of action" if he fully comprehends the situation. Try not to lose your mind (I know it easy for me to say this) sadly I have seen these abuses of power far too many times. If they think they can continue to harass and bully you they will. You are letting them know that enough is enough.

Trust me I know how local politics can be horrific.

You are most welcome.
