Hmm. How WILL Sanctuary Sally save Austin?? Why, it’s super easy! All she has to do is…keep her husband at home!
Doroteo Salas Hernandez has been married to Ms. Sally Irene Riedle Wooten Whitley Whitley Whitley Whitley Best Hernandez (bet you can’t wait to hear why none of that was a typo!) since October 1997; that would be just four months after his Hays County divorce from Leticia Hernandez (nee Martinez) was finalized.
The first way Sally can Save Austin? In January 1996, Doroteo (Or Ted, if you like) was arrested on a Domestic Violence charge… oh, and he was a Police Officer for the City of Austin at the time. This is interesting since one of the current Mrs Hernandez’s big soapbox campaign promises is….ending Assault Family Violence! The following is copied and pasted from one of the pages on her http://www.vote4sally.com campaign website.
“Assault Family Violence
My plan to address assault family violence for a safer Travis County
Click Here to Download the Working Plan
Former District Attorney Ronnie Earle hired me in 1992 as a Sergeant Investigator and I was promoted to Chief Investigator in 2005, a leadership position I held until Travis County voters elected me to Constable of Precinct Three.
As Chief Investigator, I saw many assault family violence cases end without a conviction because there was a lack of prompt support to the victim from the arresting agency. As a result, many victims went back into an abusive relationship and refused to cooperate with our office.
We have to change how arresting agencies assess and follow up with assault family violence investigations and how we help victims of family violence.
The current practice of arresting the defendant, taking a victim’s statement, and then having an investigator follow up weeks later is not sufficient and is not what Travis County should be doing. We need investigators who will promptly follow up with victims and connect them with the resources they need to improve their lives.
Women, men, and children deserve to feel safe and treated with respect in Travis County.”
Well isn’t that just awesome! If you’d like to see more about the non-physical ill treatment Mr. Hernandez heaped upon this particular wife, go to the Hays County Website, and search for Doroteo Hernandez in “Civil” proceedings. (The booking info above is from a search in the “Jail” category) As if physical violence wasn’t enough, Mr. Hernandez apparently spent years claiming unemployment as an excuse for not making child support payments. (Spoiler alert: This is just ONE of the ex-wives that he has run through the court ringer)
Coming tomorrow: ANOTHER way Sanctuary Sally can help the citizens (illegal and legal) of Travis County!!
It only gets better folks. Help me count down to Election Day with more amazing trivia EVERY DAY about the Democrat Contender for Travis County Sheriff.
