Child Protective Services Liaisons
to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department
and Local Juvenile Probation Departments
CPS provides regional liaisons to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) and to local/count juvenile probation departments (JPDs). TJJD is an agency created in 2011 by merging the Texas Youth Commission (TYC) and Texas Juvenile Probabtion Commission (TJPC). The liaisons are responsible for:
- Working with DFPS state headquarters to address questions, issues, and concerns raised in the regions by CPS, TJJD, or local / county JPDs.
- Reviewing monthly TYC and JPC reports in IMPACT (the DFPS case management system) and forwarding information from those reports to caseworkers.
- Ensuring that caseworkers maintain accurate information in IMPACT about CPS children adjudicated to TJJD or county juvenile probation departments.

i. An Overview
II. Increased Visitation/Visit Coaching
One of the primary goals of the Harris County ITC [Infant Toddler Court] is to increase opportunities for children to interact with their parents and for parents to learn how to respond to their child’s needs. Frequent and consistent contact is essential to maintaining a strong and secure relationship. Visit coaching is a specialized service provided to families involved in the ITC.
The primary goal of visit coaching is to make each visit a good experience and enjoyable for both the parent and your child. A visit coach does this by:
Ever wonder where the saying Don’t mess with Texas comes from?
“Yes– “Houston, where I regretfully livE, there is a PROBLEM!”
The secrets behind TEXAS that I have educated myself about are beyond shocking. You can’t even imagine the adoption scams going on here where countless children are used as bait for a money making… scam. No offense to Hillary Adams, but I know abuse cases that would blow your mind in Texas alone that never got justice! I knew a beautiful girl, Felicia Minix , who I tried to frantically help being ignored who died only trying to escape the horrific abusive shelters here forced by CPS illegal system of organized crimes!
HER story didn’t have any attention at all tragically, at least not until the hit-and-run style assassination in the Donna Ringoringo case on he/r family court march agaisnt Harris County, Texas Family Court Fraud, Corruption, Abuse, and Child-Trafficking/Judicial Prostitution, run over while crossing the street a block away from he/r goal to make it to Austin, the state capitol, after walking all the way from the Harris County “family” courthouse in Houston with plans to further march on foot all the way to Washington, D.C.if the Texas Legislature or “Consensus” Committee refused to stop acting http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/courier/news/auto-ped-victim-id-d-as-conroe-teenager/article_c09e8886-2552-5745-86b1-7c2d91557da9.html.; possibly related, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=55173704;

Cps was used as a tool to take me down, unlawfully.
Click, http://youtu.be/NcLyyzN4iXo .
How in America can this be allowed.?
HAS America become a lawless place to live for countless of us?
PLEASE Fight back against Judicial ABUSE and FRAUD. What kind of monster of a state is this to treat women and children this way!
Can you imagine we live in a world where an abusive family that harmed you and your child (evidence based, “pre-determined,” “trauma” informed outcomes research) can buy your child and steal your life?
How, or Why is it that TEXAS would not let me file a criminal report or write a sworn statement?
So I just started posting the evil faces behind this case, and, already, three (3) of the faces are deleted without me doing it! Anita and Gary McDonald, my mother and step-father (step-father Gary McDonald of Kingwoood, Texas, having been appointed as head of the TEXAS DENTAL BOARD criminally protected by Governor Rick Perry) bully me all you want you won’t shut me up illegally again!
Your buddy, Rowena McGowan Freeman, shown in this public picture on the Internet, is FROM MAINE, and who is also a frequently secretly–ex parte–appointed suborned witness who has a felony record and FBI number!
I had called the police on her for theft in FEB 2008. The same time the following year in 2009, described or disguised sometimes as ” Rowena McGowan Freeman,” had me illegally arrested and thrown in jail for the first time in my life in my life even though I was in my 40′s–statistically significant proof of what i am not!
Since I had called the police on one described as “Rowena McGowan Freeman” about a year before, Freeman had motive to get me. And that she did– but totally unlawfully!
Harris County CPS and solicited, alleged enemies, used Rowena McGowan Freeman as their number one witness illegally/ It is interesting that individual describes, “Rowena McGowan Freeman,“ did not raise her own kids and is on MARRIAGE No. 5!
. . . and the “enemies” fraudulently concealed/ illegally covered- up the real, unambigous truth about he/r very disturbing background. Further, said perpetrators not only permitted, but also suborned perjury (see malfeasance, malpractice, therapeutic deception, false imprisonment, fraudulent concealment, assault, theft, abuse of public office, acts unbecoming of a public-private officer and also of the court, malicious prosecution, a “state” law claim as opposed to federal law claims for damages, abuse of “authority,” abuse of process, abuse of procedure with malice rising to the level of gross negligence, intolerable acts, failing to report child abuse or neglect, collusion, entrapment, federal statute on fraud and false statements, though pursuant to “Title” 18 U.S.C. instead of “Title” 42 U.S.C., grand theft or larceny, tampering with government documents, a felony in “‘state’ of Texas,” harassment, intimidation, retaliation, entrapment by estoppel, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty (to disclose), invasion of privacy, knowing and intentional suppression of exculpatory evidence, racketeering, interference with child custody (Texas Penal Code), child enticement, agreement to abduct from custody, interference with (“child”) “access and visitation,” (Texas Penal Code) misprision of felony of a judge, bribery, perjury, violation of the right to bodily integrity and freedom of movement, unlawful, “unreasonable” search and unlawful, “unreasonable, seizure without probable cause, reasonable suspicion, and without reliability, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraudulent misrepresentation, negligent infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence, conversion, fraud, simple conspiracy, federal, u.S Constitutional conspiracy against rights committed by color (and color of process) of law (42 U.S.C., section 1985(3), and violations of federal, u.S. Constitutional and its Bill of Rights and natural, guaranteed, God-Given and “unalienable” and “inalienable” and implied rights, Amendment IX (Ninth Amendment) to the federal u.S Constitution and its Bill of Rights, (42 U.S.C., section 1983, and see also section 1988, the Civil Rights Attorney’s Fees Award Act of 1976), and the federal Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act)allowed total perjury despite having reliable, verifiable, authentic proof and evidence that s/he was lying! Everything “Regina McGowan Freeman,” CPS, and solicited “enemies” uttered and testified, bearing false witness against an innocent individual in a court, thus “orders” void ab initio without special or appearance, null and void as a matter of law and fact, and also substantive, truthful fact was nothing but multiple-party, suborned, boiler plate hearsay. This violation of Rule 807, Rules of Evidence, was not only ratified, but first suborned with no witnesses to back up any of “Rowena McGowen Freeman’s” outrageous claims peretrated against Oath and section 1986 of “Title” 42, U.S.C., the neglect to protect/”Good Samaritan” law! Freeman, like so many other social workers without the degree, was on a mission to destroy my little girl, markel charron, and i, being natural (wo)man described “amy charron.” That this experience was beyond scary is the understatement of the year.
I will expose “Regina McGowan Freeman” as well as it has now been almost 3 yrs forced to endure being harassed to not! If I get arrested over it you all will get caught! Anyone can pull “Regina McGowan Freeman’s” and other aliases the real record off the internet to corroborate this fact.
“Rowena McGowan Freeman“ also lied about being a nurse to give bogus very damaging medical claims not true about me! Since when can a teacher say under oath she has a nursing degree and call me basically crazy and mentally ill? What kind of outrageous witness was this? That isn’t even legal! She should be in prison for all that she got away with! She also said, under oath, that I was a “call girl” in spite of the fact that there was no proof of this– in almost three (3) years! How very odd it is that there is no proof of her lies, not even as public as I went. Where were the utter lack of witnesses to prove Rowena’s malicious and retaliatory perjury against me in court?
What they did was so unlawful. S/he provoked me clearly and then they set me up for a crime just for calling her and questioning why she was doing this to my child and I. She even said my bed was broken from”wild sex”– under oath! Of course I was mad….I was fighting for my child! What a joke and if it were true men would of came forward by now. It has never ever happened! This crazy witness must have been paid-off. Rowena Freeman got more time than any of my witnesses, yet she knew me less than all the others.
How would someone I barely knew have had more ‘say-so’ than my Grandma and life long friends in my trial or hearing? Rowena McGowan ‘Freeman’ walked up to my Grandma and I, and begged to be my friend. Next, Rowena Freeman was their star witness? Maybe this was to help the wealthy enemies win, though unconstitutionally, unlawfully, thus, illegally--presumably unreasonable, even subjectively.
She even said I didn’t graduate from UT and my evil mom just sat there smiling knowing she was lying! My diploma was public and almost 10,000 saw it!
So, Rowena set me up and the judge so allowed it! I was arrested and thrown like a unwanted dog in jail for the first time of my life scared to death during the trial for only questioning her on why she she was lying! I was forced to tell the jurors I spent the night in jail and I came from jail on the day of the verdict!
The case didn’t get heard until a yr later where is was dropped yet I never got another trial! Yet the jurors thought I was going to jail for yrs so how would I of won?
Texas you PLAY ‘DANG’ ‘DIRTY’!
These public servants–non-disclosed slave-owners, well-known, literal, federally investigated by foreign service agents as those who run judicial prostitution rings in Florida, Georgia, Texas, California, Nevada, and New York City–child sex traffickers–made my life HE _ _!
These child traffickers, judicial prostitutes, deal-cutting double agents, child “protective” service or “social” workers–“free man”–unlawfully “ordered”a 6:00pm curfew against me when they knew that I worked at night at a modeling agency, and had started my own fashion shows. The judge wouldn’t let me work–in Texas! I lost tons of money over this!
I have been threaten to not expose this, but enough is enough! “Rowena McGowan Freeman” and my step- dad, appointed to the Dental Board of Texas by Governor Rick Perry, dentist, Dr. Gary Armstrong, sat in court closely together trying to put me in jail 10 yrs when I had never been in jail until their set ups! It was so scary….you have idea!
How could someone with a felony record take down someone with no record?
Proof of one lie for starts read her public article she claimed under oath she was or had been a nurse….. FEATURE STORIES www.markelcharron.justicesite.org …..hurry and take a peek before it all illegally gets shut down again.Changing Lives: Rowena Freeman
Leap of faith Standing at the front of the classroom, seventh-grade teacher Rowena Freeman observes the dark-haired girl to her left. The once-vivacious student has become withdrawn, sometimes hostile. Something is going on, but what—problems with parents, a romance gone awry? Freeman doesn’t know. Not yet. But she has walked these roads, and she knows the best way out of a crumbling life situation—education.
Rowena FreemanFreeman, who’s working on her doctoral degree, comes from a family that was convinced she would never attend college.“I always wanted to go to nursing school, but I grew up in a really poor family,” she said. “Only boys and rich people went to college. My mom was the last of 23 children in her family. She said, ‘You will take business classes, be a secretary and get married.’ I actually got in trouble for taking college-prep classes in high school. But I didn’t want to be a secretary. I planned to have a secretary.”
After graduation, Freeman enrolled in nursing school but soon realized that medicine was not for her. Instead, she followed her mother’s life prescription. She got married, left her childhood home in Portland, Maine, and accompanied her husband to Texas, where he began graduate school at UTA. It wasn’t a happy life. Her husband was brutally abusive, both physically and emotionally.
“He was so controlling,” she said. “He wanted to keep his eye on me all the time.”
For more than four years, she never had access to more than a few cents in pocket change. But since her husband was in school and spent most of his time on campus, he allowed Rowena to return to classes as well. He saw her education as a positive, she says, because it kept her within his circle of control. In reality, UTA gave Freeman the knowledge and help she needed to escape.
One professor noted her gift for writing and encouraged her to study English. Another friend, a retired teacher, insisted: “Your heart is in being a teacher. That’s what you must do.” All the while, compassionate staff at the UTA Health Center patched her up after every beating and helped her make the contacts she would need to leave a man who repeatedly threatened to kill her.
But leaving was complicated. Freeman had a young son to think about. She had no money. Her family lived thousands of miles away. Still, she planned, saved her pennies and prayed for the strength to make the toughest decision of her life.
“I walked out on faith,” she said. “I didn’t know anybody, really, but I knew I had to leave.”
In 1999, Freeman graduated magna cum laude from the UTA Honors College with a bachelor’s degree in English. She followed that in 2003 with a master’s in education. Her Ph.D. will be in educational leadership from Andrews University in Michigan. Retired UTA Honors College Dean Carolyn Barros praised Freeman as someone who “tenaciously stuck to the high goals she set for herself. She kept on through all the challenges. She never gave up, never quit.”
The 37-year-old Freeman, who teaches English at Arnold Middle School in Grand Prairie, firmly believes that the bad times happen for a reason.
“I have many things in common with my students,” she said. “They’re poor. They come from difficult family situations. I know what it’s like to be hungry, to be cold. All five of my siblings dropped out of high school. My family still can’t understand why I’m still in school. Not a lot was expected of me, but I wanted more.
“I tell them [the students] what my 10th-grade English teacher shared with me: ‘You can become just a product of your environment, or you can go up the ladder of life. Even if your parents don’t believe in you, you can do it.’ ”
As a child, Freeman traveled the world in books.
“I wanted to live in one of two places, either in Venezuela or in Texas,” she said. “My ex-husband left Texas and I stayed. UTA and the people I met there made it possible.
“All of my experiences have made me what I am today. Now I think back about it, and I wouldn’t change it at all.”

www.markelcharron.justicesite.org …. and please hurry and take a peek before Ramona Mayon shuts it all down criminal evidence again illegally after getting so much money out of me!My own always wicked of a mother has not let me even talk to my girl in two (2) years, now even though she only lives forty (40) minutes away! How anyone could doubt my story is beyond me! That is severe child and adult abuse, and it fits her evil patterns of abuse throughout the course of my whole life. She even abused my real dad, who died at the age of fifty (50) years old.
My father, Mark R. Charron, kept so much to himself but I will speak out for him as well! When my dangerous evil mom, Anita McDonald, married him, she was pregnant. So, then she dropped out of high school . She called me so many names while she blamed me for anything and everything!
She always hated me for things that were her own fault! She thought that because my dad wrote hit music for the famous country music artist, BJ Thomas, and others, that she would land big money. But later, when my dad became sick, much like I did in a similar suspicious manner, she had an affair with the man to whom she is now married–Dr. Gary McDonald, D.D.S., Kingwood, Texas, appointed to the Texas Dental Board by Governor Rick Perry.
Any real investigator should have put these puzzle pieces together. I had a very disturbing secret tape of my dad questioning why he felt so sick from 1983 and my mom laughing. I had a jerk of a crooked high profile lawyer named George Parnham, and YES– he was Andrea Yates‘ lawyer.
HE (crooked Houston, Texas lawyer described as “George Parnham”) asked for the tape, but never gave it back, at least not to me.
When I showed up for the tape with a witness, corrupt Houston, Texas attorney described as “George Parnham,” threatened me. Parnham was involved in the unlawful, unreasonable, illegal, “objectively reasonable” entrapment in whichI was intentionally, knowingly, and with reasonably foreseeable knowledge of future harm and consequences with all known information given to him at the time, based on knowledge, belief, direct, damning proof and evidence, complicit in the entrapment-based, federal R.I.C.O. Act of 1970, court con perpetrated illegally, under the color of authority of law in which I was set up after getting a almost $20,000 retainer.
My story is so far worse than you know yet. How am I still standing is beyond me. It’s like no matter how much I tried to win righteously, they would illegally make me step back. My evidence was stolen out of my house with witnesses. The police did nothing. Luckily, much was with a trusted friend, or so one may [ or may not] say.
The threats, harassment, scare tactics, inter alia(generally and actually, federal R.I.C.O Act of 1970 predicate crimes and abuses of power, ) were not not something I ever dealt with until this case so think about it. Sadly everyone in Houston seem to protect their shocking crimes and not even let me legally defend myself. I lost everything unlawfully fighting back even my beautiful home and belongings and they counted on that to win! In this pic with the Governor I was promised he would take action and I gave him my evidence card and showed his people my evidence! He lied and never did anything but hid felony crimes.http://www.change.org/petitions/stolen-only-a-few-months-later-fronm-this-picture-unlawfully My girl changed so much after taken!
This is a parents ‘worse’ nightmare! I didn’t even recognize her this way. Cps, Governor Rick Perry and many others hid felonies and set ups on me! They covered up proof of being my girl clearly abused as well! Since I taped proof of my girls abuse and took secret pictures my rights were unlawfully terminated quicker than any case ever heard of where I could never speak to her again now in 2 yrs!
By: Amy Charron My child was knowingly forced into danger
Written by a lawyer in Dallas, Robert Guest. Governor Rick Perry has opined on the CPS YFZ disaster.
What would Mr. Perry have to say to the hundreds of children who were wrongfully taken from their parents?If responsibility needs to be taken for […court edicts] saying that we stepped across some legal line, I’ll certainly take that responsibility,” Mr. Perry said.
“I am substantially less interested in these fine legal lines that we’re discussing than ……I am about these children’s welfare, that’s where my focus is. That’s where CPS’ focus is.”
How could someone call the law that protects parents from having their children arbitrarily stolen by CPS a “fine legal line”?
Statist apologetics are built upon the tyranny of good intentions. Mr. Perry readily endorses this illegal compound raid based on phony evidence, sloppy police work, and religious profiling because CPS meant well.
Rick has also taken it upon himself to accept responsibility for one of the worst bureaucratic disasters in Texas history. If I was responsible for the YFZ disaster, I would have the decency to resign. Unfortunately, Rick won’t step aside and let someone with less incompetence, hubris, and disdain for freedom run our state, or CPS.
WHEN did it become OK that the innocent are guilty over conspired actions to predestine there fate? When did it become okay …..that often those who don’t get justice is due to matters of revenge and motives than really justice? Who anymore holds our Constitution sacred? Immoral and injustice results should never be the final measure to credibility. So many as myself are treated by this flawed agonizing system …with ‘savagery.’ When did …it become okay to watch so many devoted victims forced into being a prisoner of pain and isolation only because “ WE THE PEOPLE” rather see them as outcast clearly misunderstood or simply crazy.
When did it become okay to watch our stolen, visible children vanish into misery, and sometimes death?
Does anyone believe in fighting for something bigger than oneself?
Why is it that many are never held accountable for such injustice and crimes on humanity?
Since when is judicial immunity tolerated and countless violating their oath to office? Since when is okay to be Guilty of Willful blindness? Our Founding fathers created a Constitution to protect the innocent from such tyranny. If FREEDOM AND JUSTICE isn’t worth fighting for, then what is?
Often the persecution is without limits when attacking the falsely accused. I am livid to see what really is happening in America now. I was personally tortured for fighting against this corrupted system. Truths embrace me now that I never would of believed 3 yrs ago. I am Amy Charron who has earned my opinion. I will never be okay with any of this and I will not quit fightback against this corrupted system.
Now, regarding all my criminal evidence being shut down by
Ramona Mayon–? . . .
I have spoken to a sheriff, and Ramona Mayon is being investigated for crimes, now.
even took down proof of my little girl being abused on secret audio and secret pics I took! Who the ‘H_ _ _ _ ‘shuts that down?
I gave her enough chances and she continued to try to bribe me for a lot of money to keep felony crimes on my girl and I public! She is so ignorant to think with over 10,000 seeing all the evidence all over google and all that she would get away with hiding crimes. I am gathering all the proof now and a witness and the sheriff will be making a criminal report for extortion and stealing my evidence and property over a money scam. I also taped our conversations.
She will be held accountable for clearly allowing me to lose this case by hiding the truth. That is criminal. She knew that evidence was everywhere and now it is all suspended even she trashed me on the internet lying about why it is shut down.
I will also do a you tube today that my officer friend is filming. It is funny that all my shocking you tubes videos went down at the same time she shut me down. Such a darn thing but very stressful! Luckily I still have some proof of these things. Pictures are public still of my girls back last seen that Ramona has shut down over fraud. This is a crime to hide crimes.
Word is that the infamous Pat Shelton told the juvenile court administrative judge last week that he’d stop hearing cases as a substitute judge. That’s what state Sen. John Whitmire relayed to me for last Thursday’s column.
Good choice on Shelton’s part, especially since the judges who had been appointing him don’t seem to have the authority to do so.
Shelton is the divisive former judge widely criticized through the years for stepping on parental rights and running a kind of adoption express out of his courtroom. Last year, after sixteen years of serving the bench, Judge Pat Shelton decided not to run for re-election. Shelton was succeeded by one of his favorite, oft-appointed lawyers and political donors, Glenn Devlin. Last year, Devlin raked in nearly $111,000 on appointments in Shelton’s court.
Coincidentally, or perhaps not, it was Judge Glenn Devlin who appointed Judge Pat Shelton to fill- in [the papers and to sit as a substitute judge for him much like the corrupt judges directly responsible for Robin Carr near Rockwall, Texas (Dallas and Tyler, Texas and Smith and Dallas Counties) having not seen he/r private property described by the “State” as “children” in SIXTEEN YEARS AND COUNTING] for him [Devlin] in a parental rights termination case that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. Attorneys for the mother and grandmother faced apparent retaliation from other lawyers in the case after they accused Shelton of bias and asked for a mistrial.
The circumstances of the case, and also the names of those involved, were familiar enough to get the attention of [Senator Whitmire, D-Houston [but of course, it would be human nature to want to know what the innocent, oppressed mothers and children other Comm ittee members have on those like it] who has long been concerned about visiting, substituting, and special appointment sincecure, Judge Pat Shelton’s antics on the bench, and also for his preference of adopting kids out rather than first considering whether there are appropriate relatives who can take them, as the CPS policy requires.
Whitmire began poking around to see why Judge Pat Shelton was still presiding over cases. He found out Shelton wasn’t on the official list of “visiting judges,” maintained by regional administrative Judge Olen Underwood.Naturally, Whitmire wanted not to know on what authority Shelton was appointed to hear cases. The senator and I were referred to a mysterious “local rule” that makes the claim that juvenile court judicial discretion in appointing a substitute judge in the event of their absence.
But, the rules, provided by district court administrator Clay Bowman – entitled, Rules of the Judicial District Courts of Harris County Juvenile Trial Division – don’t appear to give any judge the authority to appoint a “substitute.”
The rules do talk about what to do if a judge is absent: The local administrative judge is supposed to notify Judge Olen Underwood (the presiding judge of the 2nd Administrative Office of the district courts) and ask for a “visiting” judge to fill in. Alternatively, cases could be distributed to one of the other juvenile courts.
There’s no mention of a rule that lets juvenile judges call up one of their former judge buddies to baby-sit the bench for a day.
The model “local rule” appears to be nothing more than a good ol’ boy understanding that lets judges line their friends’ pockets on the taxpayers’ dime.
So far, Shelton has been paid about $13,600 for working 274 hours as a substitute judge in juvenile courts, according to records provided by Clay Bowman.
The county spends tens of thousands of dollars on these substitutes each fiscal year, including more than $59,500 spent in 2010, $55,300 in 2011 and $41,300 so far in fiscal 2012, according to records. Before Glenn ‘Devlin’ even became a judge, he was a part of the substitute judge club, albeit a minor one, earning $5,000 since fiscal 2010.
So, on what authority is the county writing these checks?
Clay Bowman wouldn’t return my call Wednesday and didn’t answer my questions through email. Nor did I get a response from Shelton, Devlin or juvenile court administrative Judge John Phillips.
The level of incest, conflicts of interest and pay-to-play politics in two of the three juvenile courts has long been a scourge on Harris County’s justice system. Sadly, this is just the latest example.
And even if Shelton has sworn off the bench for now, as Sen. John Whitmire heard from Phillips, he’s still a player in the juvenile courts.
Shelton this year has received appointments to represent children in 23 cases, according to documents provided by the Harris County Auditor’s Office in response to an open records request. He’s been paid $9,200, and counting, for his work as an attorney or guardian ad litem, or co-ad litem representing the interests and/or wishes of children in CPS cases.
Those of us who breathed a sigh of relief last year were wrong. Shelton never left. He just changed seats.

I have been severely abused where Texas put my helpless child and on top of it they were suspects for attempted murder by a lawyer making a police report that was covered up after I did as well! Stories like mine are more common than you think. Many of our children die, or we do just from a broken heart because some are intentionlly, knowingly, foreseeably, maliciously, with invidiously discriminatory animus and cruel and unusual abuse, systematic re-victimization, and torture for profit perceived as not being able to survive with all the illegal tactics they pull. The media does not cover our stories but they are beyond REAL!
