Pregnant Woman in Viral Police Beating Cleared of Two Felony Charges
GREENVILLE TX – Deanna Robinson, the unfortunate star of a 2015 viral video which showed her taking punches from a Hunt County Sheriffs deputy while 38 weeks pregnant, was cleared today of interfering with child custody, a felony in the state of Texas. This is the second of two felonies that Robinson was charged with, the first being assault on an officer, which the grand jury no-billed last summer.
According to Robinson, most of today’s trial was narrowly focused on the writ, which supposedly granted state agents the authority to kidnap her child. However, the writ and the execution thereof was incorrectly handled by all involved which prompted Judge Beacom to issue a “scathing” decision in favor of Robinson. He further stated his disgust surrounding the lack of training and experience that the agents apparently displayed.
Robinson still faces one remaining misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest which her attorney plans to file a No Action based on the outcome of today’s trial.
Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks, who never denounced the actions of his officer and claimed we would all learn the full story in court, could not be reached for comment.
