The rise and fall of Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe; Chilling aspects of the Hays County Trials

Leavitt & Tibbe, ex District Attorney of Hays County Austin

Hays County is singing it's swan song

Is Hays County Texas singing it's swan song, as the evidence of institutionally abusive, greedy, racially targeted attacks against the community is mounting to unprecedented levels? Those were the years from 2006 - 2014, when Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton were in power. They were supported, assisted and harbored by the Hays County Sheriff's Office, the Hays County Judge, the Hays County media and many of "Hays County's finest", the people who made up this "unique" place in small town southern America

Some of the uniquely chilling aspects of what could only be described as the Hays Witch Trials

Leavitt & Tibbe, ex District Attorney of Hays County Austin
Hays County DA office has lobbyists promoting
attacks against certain individuals
- Lobbyists: They had lobbyists targeting minority communities. Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe was not a public prosecutor, but acted as a private prosecutor for her privileged clients and lobbyists
- Plagiarism: Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton plagiarized the trial of another Swami Saraswati of the Satyananda Ashram in Australia. Swami Akhandananda Saraswati was convicted in the 1980s of child abuse, and they plagiarized his trial. According to court records, one of Sherri Tibbe's clients and lobbyists admitted in court that she got the idea to make the accusations from a newspaper article about another Swami. Her best friend and co-collaborator was from New Zealand or Australia, so would have know about the other Swami's conviction.  She may even have had newspapers clippings of the event. The details about the Australian Swami Saraswati's child abuse conviction had largely become unknown in the internet age, and had faded into oblivion until a few months ago when a Royal Commission held a public inquiry. 100s more victims came forward in the past few month and another public inquiry will be held later this year. In Hays County, 100s more people have admitted that Swami Prakashanand Saraswati was collateral damage in a failed blackmail attempt by 2 sisters and their Australian or New Zealand best friend (all in their 30s). One piece of evidence of the plagiarism is that one of Sherri Tibbe's lobbyists wrote a book glorifying Tibbe and Compton, in which they claimed that Swami Prakashanand Saraswati had an assistant called "Vishi". Swami Prakashanand Saraswati had no such assistant, and Vishi is not a real word. Swami Akhandananda Saraswati had an assistant called "Shishy", who corresponded to how Vishi was described. "Shishy" means "female disciple", so the word makes sense, where as Vishi doesn't. The book was signed and praised by many of Sherri Tibbe's lobbyists. It was the first case of prosecutorial plagiarism the world has ever known.
There was no investigation during the Hays County witch trial
There was no investigation during the
Hays County witch trial
- No investigation. Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton or the Hays County Police didn't waste their time on irrelevancies like investigations or evidence gathering. They simply packed Swami Prakashanand Saraswati off to prison and argued to keep him there for 400 years. He would have been 500 years old by the time he was released, if they got their way. Swami Prakashanand Saraswati would be in his 90s now. Maybe when he is 900 years old, they will admit that Sherri Tibbe and Cathy Compton made him disappear. You may be surprised to know that as an Indian man in Hays County, you could be interned until you are half a millennium old, without anyone asking you any questions, interviewing you, visiting the scene of the alleged crime or anything else. None of that was done, and furthermore, the family and friends of the co-collaborators all admitted that it was a failed blackmail attempt against the family. Swami Prakashanand Saraswati was collateral damage.
- Cheerleaders and Groupies: Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton had cheerleaders and groupies who wrote books glorifying and praising them for their criminal acts.
Hays County Prosecutorial Gaslighting
- Gaslighting: Without an investigation or any evidence there was only thing left. For all intents and purposes, they made the trial a movie set with hired hit squads on the roof threatening and roughing up the defense witnesses and giving the media, jury and public the impression that a deadly, made-for-movie operation was taking place. It seemed that no less than Osama Bin Laden was on trial. When eyebrows of local journalists were raised as to why there was such a deadly level of security in place for an 82 year old vegetarian Indian man, the cat caught Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe's tongue. This is a clear example of Gaslighting, a manipulation technique typically used by abusive husbands where they stage bizarre events to manipulate and disorient their wife. 
Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Police
destroyed inconvenient evidence 
- Destroying and Hiding Evidence: Without an investigation or any evidence and a mountain of witnesses who admitted that it was a failed blackmail attempt, there was a second thing left. It was the only trial in which the defendant's exculpatory evidence went missing or was destroyed from the Police evidence room, the DA's office and every other single location. Exculpatory evidence is evidence that exonerates or tends to exonerate the defendant of guilt. More details in the previous post.
Sherri Tibbe of Tibbe and Levette, Hays County
Hays County District Attorney Office
were extortionists
- Extortion via Bail: It's the only trial which was an extortion attempt on a monitory community by interning a senior religious leader, and then attempting to bleed the community of 10 million dollars by making victim disappear and hiding the body. When a team of law makers came forward, they only got .02% of the cash.
- Fulfilling Election Campaign Promises: It was the only trial that was run by two parasitic entities of the community, Sherri Tibbe and Cathy Compton who sought fame and glory and who were fulfilling their election promise of increasing the conviction rate for defendants they had not yet seen (at the time of their election campaign).
Sherri Tibbe of Tibbe and Levette
Speaking out against Sherri Tibbe,
Cathy Compton and Hays County
- People Speaking Up: It's the only trial where 1000s of people have people spoken up about the Hays County Witch Trials while the two perpetrators were still in office. The writer of a new law said she was "alarmed" by Sherri Tibbe's misuse of the law.
- Admissions: It's the only trial where all the lobbyists and groupies of the District Attorney finally admitted that Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton were in it for the cash. What they didn't realize is that that makes it a crime, of which the RICO Act will apply to the DAs as well as to themselves, as they colluded in the racketeering offenses. 
Sherri Tibbe
Never ending denials by Sherri Tibbe,
ex Hays County DA and partner at Levette and Tibbe
Denials: It's the only instance where the DA has been making never-ending over-the-top denials of her criminal activities. 
- Busted: It's the only trial where 2 colluding District Attorneys or assisting District Attorneys have been busted in case after case of evidence tampering and whose colleagues have come forward to blow the whistle on their abuse of power.
- Increasingly Snowballing Evidence: The evidence against the pair is mounting to almost colossal proportions, and the most damning evidence of all is the trial transcript of Swami Prakashanand Saraswati which has been cited as being "disgraceful", among other adjectives, by everyone who has read it.

Welcome to Swami Unchained; Sherri Tibbe Denies Accusations of Prosecutorial Abuse

Abuse of Swami Prakashanand Saraswati by Hays County Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Cathy Compton


When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic


Hi, my name is Jake Pepper. The above truth has been evidently clear to all of us who have studied the activities of ex Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and ex Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton and those who refused to give up their allegiance to the duo, despite clear evidence of their crimes.

I am proud to say that I decided to look beyond the headlines created by ex Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and ex Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton at a time when many others refused to accept the idea that a colored foreign man could be falsely accused and persecuted by a small town mob in the small town bible belt. Has that never happened before? The name of that man: 90 year old Swami Prakashanand Saraswati.

Some of my white countrymen in Hays County called me "crazy" and "insane" for speaking out against the abuses against an Indian man, and more so a man who taught "voodoo" (It would be a stretch to expect some of the "Hays County's finest" to distinguish Voodoo from Hindu).

But yes, it has happened before, and my research has shown that Hays County and neighboring areas has a dark history of slavery and mistreatment of minorities who were viewed as unintelligent, and less than human.

Since the time I began my analysis of Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton, many more people's eyebrows have been raised against Sherri and Cathy and now, everyone is speaking out against the Hays County abuses.

Welcome to Swami Unchained


The scale and extent of Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe's criminal operations and those of her assistant, protégé and close friend Nita Spankin (the self-designated code name of ex Hays County District Attorney Cathy Compton) are almost incomprehensible to a normal law-abiding person.


Every time Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe furthered her pogrom against the innocent, law-abiding Indian American community, 100s more lawyers and legal experts came to learn about the trial transcripts of Swami Prakashanand Saraswati. Those offering to work pro bono should go to correct legal representatives, and not me, a student investigator who stumbled on the crimes of Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Nita Spankin (the self-designated code name of ex Hays County District Attorney Cathy Compton).

But anyway, a startling number of people have also realized that Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe is the most dangerous and corrupt elected official Texas has ever known.

We'll start with her former assistant, Miss Peach.

1. When former Hays County Assistant District Attorney Peach (one of the good guys) stormed out in protest in 2009 over the falsifying of evidence in the trial of a Hays County man, Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe (one of the bad guys) basically said (I paraphrase here):

We believe you. We know that the evidence was falsified, but we don’t believe it was wrong

Link 1: http://www.newstreamz.com/2009/05/18/peach-speaks-about-da-controversy/ 

Link 2: http://www.dallasjustice.com/da-watch-whistleblower-san-marcos-da-lynn-peach-resigned-yesterday/

With that, former Hays County Assistant District Attorney said:

Holy smokes, he’s lying

 about her colleague who presented the false evidence in court and whom Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe had defended. Peach then brought the attention of the world on Sherri Tibbe by revealing the facts to the man’s defense team, as well as to the media. For this, she was named “Hero of the day” by blogger and journalist Anthony Roberts.

Link 3:
http://www.zimbio.com/Anabolic+Steroids+Information/articles/6552161/Hero+Day+Hays+County+Assistant+District+Attorney

The former Assistant District Attorney had nothing to gain, and everything to lose by standing up for justice. She was an outsider and a newbie. She had just joined the Hays County District Attorney’s office. She lost her job and her livelihood because of her honesty.

After she left her job on moral grounds, only corruption was left at the Hays County conviction factory.


No one was left to stop Sherri Tibbe and Cathy Compton from destroying evidence that Swami Prakashanand Saraswati’s (a later victim of Hays County justice system) defense hinged on.

Newstreamz has repeatedly asked Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe, or an authorized representative of her office, for comment or an interview about the whole fiasco. Sherri Tibbe’s only response was that she stands by the falsification of evidence. The former Hays County Assistant District Attorney was repeatedly shunned, ridiculed and bullied by her colleagues for standing up to the status quo.

Earlier this year, Peach herself ran for office of Hays County District Attorney. She promised to bring "a stronger sense of transparency and respect to the office."

Hays County Doesn't have a proper DA
http://lovehays.com/hays-countys-most-important-vote-lynn-peach-for-district-attorney/

She promised to "clean up" the Hays County DA office of Sherri Tibbe
http://smmercury.com/2014/02/19/letter-peach-ready-willing-and-able-to-clean-up-das-office/

Peach also said:
The Hays County District Attorney's Office must first reestablish credibility with law enforcement, with those within the legal system and with the community. Public trust has to be restored.
http://www.peachforda.com/

2. Former Hays County Republican Party chair, Cox, writes that the district attorney’s office is

long due for a major overhaul 
http://smmercury.com/2014/02/19/letter-peach-ready-willing-and-able-to-clean-up-das-office/

Cox also says:
By law, district attorneys are not supposed to hide facts or conceal evidence that establishes the innocence of the accused. The primary duty of the district attorney is not to accumulate convictions but rather to see that justice is done. 

The office of the Hays County District Attorney lost sight of those obligations as well as the constitutional protections owed to the accused. The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is one of my passions, but I feel strongly about all of the Bill of Rights. The Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Eighth Amendments relating to rights of the accused are no more negotiable than the Second Amendment. 

The Hays County District Attorney’s office conduct of seeking convictions without regard for justice is bad for the rule of law, bad for the accused, bad for the family of the accused, bad for the image of the district attorney’s office and the county, and bad for the taxpayers forced to foot the bill.

3. Charles O’Dell, Ph.D. and President of Hays Community Action Network (HaysCAN) was a very popular political analyst and activist in Hays County. His life ambition was to expose the widespread corruption and cronyism he saw in Hays County. He had a regular and popular column on Hays County Roundup. Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe was high on O’ Dell’s list of corrupt Government figures in Hays County. At 4:15 p.m on Friday 1st 2012, Charles O’Dell was (probably) killed by Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Nita Spankin (the self-designated pseudo-name of ex Hays County District Attorney Cathy Compton who was fired or resigned from office earlier this year).

Here is a list of some of his commentary on ex Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe


- "Sherri Tibbe is dangerous"  http://hayscountyroundup.blogspot.com/2011/04/save-taxpayer-money-and-strike-blow-for.html
- "Sherri Tibbe might have fallen in with the good ol’ boys" http://hayscountyroundup.blogspot.com/2008/10/hays-county-cant-afford-biased-district.html
"Sherri Tibbe protected a friend from investigation" http://hayscountyroundup.blogspot.com/2011/04/procession-to-killing.html
Sherri Tibbe protected a friend on murder charges and helped smear the victim through the media http://hayscountyroundup.blogspot.com/2011/04/procession-to-killing.html
"In Hays County corrupt officials protect each other – and justice isn’t blind."

He died in a freak and co-incidental traffic accident, on his way from collecting an open records request. The question is, what did he find in that open records request about Hays County District
Attorney Sherri Tibbe that made it necessary to "take care" of him?

INTERESTINGLY, in Nov 2014, KVUE reached out to Hays County District Attorney Office Sherri Tibbe for an explanation of how serial driving offenders in Hays County keep getting off, and are able to keep driving, although they are killing people, but Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe literally went into lock-down and refused to speak on camera!

4. Another DA candidate - the one who eventually won the election and will take office in January -Wes Mau, also got a look at the inner workings of the Hays County District Attorney’s Office, and
agreed things need to change.

5. The author of a new law, which Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe boasted she used to creative effect, said she was "alarmed" that Sherri Tibbe misapplied the law.

6. Several legal experts, law professors and those who propose laws in Texas, defended against Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe's attempt to take 10 million dollars from the Hindu Community in Austin, after Sherri Tibbe made Swami Prakashanand Saraswati disappear. Hays County District
Attorney Sherri Tibbe only managed to get 200,000 dollars, or 0.02% of it.

7. Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe also lists some of the many accusations which have been made against her:

- Win-at-all-costs mentality
- Withholding or destroying evidence crucial to the defendant's case
- General misconduct at any and every opportunity
- The DA office does less with more resources since Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe became district attorney
- DA staff are unprofessional and unethical
- Never-ending over-the-top denials of her criminal activities
- Increasing the conviction rate since 2007, as she promised in her election manifesto, through deceitful prosecutorial tactics, destroying evidence etc.
- Bring cases to trial which don't need to be brought to trial

http://smmercury.com/2014/02/23/letter-tibbe-will-not-remain-quiet-while-da-office-disparaged/

This is just a few, but people everywhere are talking about Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe.

Some of the things which ex Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe has been accused of


1. Terror against innocent people in Austin
2. Gas lighting, a psych-ops technique which typically sociopaths use:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaslighting
3. Win-at-all-costs mentality
4. Silencing or taking down those who speak against her abuses
5. Destruction of evidence
6. Intimidation against her victims. Witnesses have said that Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton have often mocked the victims of their terror in the comment sections of news articles about their cases. They also paste pictures of Indian religious leaders on their office walls with hand-drawn speech bubbles coming from then, such as "I like children".
7. Withholding or destroying evidence crucial to the defendant's case
8 General misconduct at any and every opportunity
9. The DA office does less with more resources since Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe became district attorney
10. DA staff are unprofessional and unethical
11. Never-ending over-the-top denials of her criminal activities
12. Increasing the conviction rate since 2007, as she promised in her election manifesto, through deceitful prosecutorial tactics, destroying evidence etc.
13. Bring cases to trial which don't need to be brought to trial
14. Hays County assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton calls herself "Nita Spankin" (Need a spankin?), according to Texas Lawyer, which demonstrates her Freudian desires to cause pain and humiliation to innocent human beings in Hays County. You couldn't make this stuff up!

Ex Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe has attacked those of us who make these claims, but her defiance only strengthens the case against her. Does truth need to be defended?

Attorney Cathy Compton's hunt against innocent minority defendants here:

Despite ex Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe's constant denials, her office has been busted in case after case of evidence tampering, as she did in her effort to send an 82 innocent man, Swami Prakashanand Saraswati, to jail for 400 years (he only 280 years though).


The question is, when is this duo, ex Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe and ex Hays County Assistant District Attorney Cathy Compton going to see the inside of a prison cell?

Here are some documents which show some of the instances where ex Sherri Tibbe's office has been busted on evidence tampering and other abuses
