Montgomery County, Texas – October 17, 2018: Montgomery County Animal Shelter Director Aaron Johnson and Assistant Director Mark Wysocki have been reinstated immediately after an exhaustive criminal investigation(conducted by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Montgomery County District Attorney’s and Office and Drug Enforcement Agency) found no wrongdoing.
Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack, who recently had oversight of the shelter placed under his supervision by Commissioners Court, fully supports Johnson and Wysocki in their return to work.
“Aaron and Mark have made great strides towards improving the Montgomery County Animal Shelter.” Noack said. “Their continued efforts will help find loving homes and reputable rescue organizations for the more than 700 dogs and cats currently in the shelter. I am confident that their leadership, combined with the dedicated staff and volunteers, will ensure that all theanimals are well taken care of while at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter.”
Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon said he is confident in the work performed by the detectives at the Sheriff’s Department and the Montgomery County Grand Jury process.
“As part of their investigation, the Grand Jury reviewed every recent allegation of criminal conduct against the shelter employees. They found no criminal liability,” Ligon said. “Many of these types of allegations find their way into the criminal justice process because there is no independent office of inspector general that can make a preliminary determination into county employee behavior and help to determine whether alleged conduct would ultimately be a criminal matter, an administrative matter, or merely an in house disciplinary matter. Without this intermediate process, there is often heightened attention and scrutiny into these investigations, which may, in hindsight, be unwarranted.”
