This is a novel and important case with wide
public interest. Every citizen in America who has substantial family
assets to be passed down to their children is at risk and is subject to
criminal behavior. The behavior exercised in this case must be
confronted and prosecuted by the criminal justice system. Citizens right
to an impartial judge are tantamount; otherwise you are at risk and
subject to Official Oppression. The massive amount of evidence collected
and presented here is shocking. To believe such a crime could occur in
front of judges who repeatedly averted their eyes is a crime by itself
and should be dealt with harshly.
There was a lot of corruption that occurred in
order for a man to lose his family's 8000 acre ranch in Stonewall
County, TX. I have decided to let the evidence speak for itself and let
you the reader come to your own conclusions as to what happened. You be
I ask that you review the evidence as if you were the judge.
You will probably have a million questions as to how could this have
Me too, but it did happen and at the end of the day Bob Denison and his
family lost the bulk of their ranch and lands which was not only the
land in Stonewall County, TX, but highly valued land in Williamson
County, TX, located right on the South San Gabriel River, mineral
interests, cattle, oil, hunting and fishing, farming, antiques,
household items and income. It all disappeared through the acts of
Stonewall County Constable John Denison who embezzled the majority of
the assets. The Estate's attorney, Isaac Castro breached his fiduciary
duty and defended John's actions of misappropriations. Castro was never
paid a dime by the Estate for a minimum of 5 years. That's a pretty big
elephant in the living room. If anyone has ever hired a lawyer you learn
lawyers want their money up front not years later.
In 2000, After 5 years as attorney for the Estate of Ida Baldwin
Denison, Castro was paid $5000 for his role in concealing and
participating in the sale of the Williamson County land, an asset that
had far more value than what the sale brought in. Mr. Castro concealed
the sale from Bob and his attorneys telling them he knew nothing about
the sale and that "some lawyer in Taylor, TX was handling it." Later it
was discovered, Castro was the one who actually drafted the sales
contract and negotiated with his client Hamlin National Bank who used
the contract as an assignment for a loan, in order for John to pay for
delinquent property taxes with more borrowed funds after falsely
reporting he had already paid the taxes.
With no accounting and no transparency, all this activity was kept
concealed from Bob and his lawyers. Despite substantial royalty income
daily pouring into the estate Castro was paid no more money again until
September 2001 and received $2000 due to a court order by Judge Connally.
In July 2001 Judge Connally issued an injunction to stop John from
stealing. Connally told the Courtroom, "They have proven self dealing".
The judge went further and said "Tell your client to stop stealing. You
know he wants an accounting. He's entitled to an accounting. Give him an
accounting". Despite those instructions from the Judge, Attorney Castro
and John Denison not only continued to evade the accounting, they
stepped up the speed to which the assets were liquidated in total
disregard for the court and the law and in the end Connally recused
himself and the new judge gave them a pass and the river of corruption
continued to flow.
This crime began with the role of Stonewall County Judge Bobby McGough
who repeatedly refused to allow Bob the benefit of a probate Judge.
McGough put his arm around Bob's shoulder and told him, "I did it to
save the county money." A probate judge would never have allowed the
antics performed by attorney Isaac Castro. That is why it was critical
to all of those who benefitted in having Bob lose his ranch for the case
to remain in District Court where so many people could control the
judges who sat on the bench. What you are about to see is a steady
Stream of Corruption.
From February 1999 to 2010 Bob went to Court every time believing justice
would prevail and that with each trip "this time" the judge would do the
right thing and stop the corruption. Though Bob fought valiantly to save
his family's ranch, corruption by attorneys, improper actions by banks,
actions of elected officials, appointed officials, and a title insurance
company owned by the largest Title Insurance company conglomerate in the
United States won the day. In addition, he lost his credit, was forced
to file bankruptcy, his home was foreclosed on, he and his wife's
savings disappeared. Mysterious activities occurred in his real estate
business during critical times in the case, causing great harm. By
November 2010 there was a Stonewall County Sheriff's sale in which the
bulk of the remainder of his ranch was sold at auction for pennies on
the dollar of its true value, including mineral interests.
Corruption did not rest in this case. It
involved the most powerful people in Texas. With such corruption by
so many the line between right and wrong was deliberately blurred by
employing every trick in the book, using color of office to
intimidate, smoke and mirror tactics to cover up, and the power of
the Courts to make what was unclean, clean, by making virtually
every act justifiable.
How could this have happened? This is a work in progress so feel free to
visit regularly and watch as to how it unfolds.
