Brazos County JP Violates Oath of Office to Uphold State Law and Constitution
This morning, in College Station, Brazos County Pct 1 JP Michael McCleary violated the very oath he took when sworn into office after winning re-election, to uphold the laws of the State of Texas. This Judge ruled probable cause existed to tow numerous vehicles without the owner or operator consent from a parking facility that had NONE of the required towing signs posted "within" the parking facility. The photo above show the towing sign posted on the property next door which is not part of the parking facility vehicles are being towed from.
It's was obvious this towing company owner is a donor to the Judge's campaign donation purse and got the ruling he wanted, even being a clear violation of the Texas Occupations Code 2308.301. No other JP Judge has ever ruled probable cause existed when no towing signs were posted, but this Judge McCleary thinks he has the judicial authority to disobey State Law because of his personal relationships with predatory towing company owners.
Incidentally, McCleary holds no law degree, so I can understand his ignorance of the Law, but that is no valid excuse to violate the rights of citizens appearing before his court.
That towing company thinks he won the battle, but it's far from over for his business, as the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations, who has received two different complaints from this morning's tow hearing victim, to which they will be fined $3000.
Anyone towed who filed a tow hearing and the Judge completely ignores State Law should file a complaint against the Judge with the Texas Commission of Judicial Conduct.
It's also very important to file an online complaint against the towing companies in College Station with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation, since 99% of the towing signs are illegal because they are either the wrong sign layout, wrong international towing symbol or lack the required text, "Unauthorized Vehicles Will Be Towed at Owners or Operators Expense".
