Christian group files ethics complaint against prosecutor in convicted Border Patrol agents case


AUSTIN -- A conservative Christian group has filed an ethics complaint against a federal prosecutor, arguing that he mishandled the case of two Border Patrol agents convicted of shooting a fleeing drug suspect and hiding evidence.

In the complaint, Kentucky-based Christians Reviving America's Values asked the Texas Bar Association to investigate U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, arguing that he willfully misled the jury to convict Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.

Sutton's office did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment Monday. Read more...

The Reverend Don Swarthout of Christians Reviving America's Values and I have been GOOD friends by phone and email for over a year now. Rev. Swarthout has GREATLY assisted Ramos and Compean. For instance, he directed several mail-in projects to send the agents letters and prayer cards. Last August, Rev. Swarthout helped with a LETTER-writing campaign launched by "Kingfish," David Hernandez, and me after Mr. Loya had informed me that the agents' incoming mail had ebbed SO much that Nacho Ramos had received ONLY ONE letter the previous week! Rev. Swarthout's compassion for Ramos and Compean RUNS DEEP! He told me over the phone that "Mr. Loya is such a FINE man, and I just CAN'T help FEELING SORRY for him and the families!" I reassured Rev. Swarthout that NO sensible, decent American could REFRAIN from HEARTFELT sympathy for these good people! And I am ALL FOR Rev. Swarthout's demand that CORRUPT US Attorney Johnny Sutton BE investigated!
