10-01-14 Carol Ann Davis and the Online Public Records of the Sheriff’s Office of HarrisCounty, Texas.
Interest in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office case management system (CMS) arose following an email from a Texasfellow, Dr Shirley Pigott, regarding the taking of Carol Ann Davis, her friend. Interest was also in reviewing the HarrisCounty CMS as a comparison to the CMS of the Sheriff’s Department of Los Angeles County, California – and the onlineInmate Information Center - which were deemed fraudulent by design and in operation.
  
The online systemof the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, in this superficial review, initially appeared exemplary in its integrity compared to theLos Angeles County, California, Sheriff’s Department CMS – all listed inmates had SPN numbers issued, and all courtsthat were listed could be identified as existing courts, compared to the large percentage of entries in the Los AngelesCMS who had no booking number issued, and who had fictitious court listings. However, further analysis of the HarrisCounty, Texas, data - attempt to correlate the SPN numbers with Booking Date - failed to reveal correlations. Finally -the glaring deficiency remained: Carol Ann Davis, who was taken over 12 hours earlier, and was claimed to be held bythe Harris County Sheriff, was never listed on the system at all.
Following correspondence with Shirley Pigott, MD, the Harris County, Texas, Online Public Records system wasqueried for: Jose Rodriguez - 9 hits; Jose Martinez - 4 hits; and Davis (last name, with no first name) - 96 hits.All Public Information Inquiry pages were printed for Jose Martinez and Jose Rodriguez, and sample pages wereprinted for David (last name).In all cases inspected, inmates had an “SPN” number issued, and a court and a case were listed by number. Thecourts that were listed could all be identified as existing courts in the Criminal Justice Center page, and the casenumbers, on their faces, did not appear invalid.In comparison, in Los Angeles County, California, about 30% of the entries had no booking number associated withthem, about 50% of the inmates had fictitious court names listed, and in numerous cases, the case numbers wereinvalid on their faces (e.g. 9999999).Attempt to correlate the SPN numbers and booking dates showed entire lack of correlation between Booking Dateand SPN numbers. Such lack of correlation should raise serious concerns regarding integrity of the styste.In comparison, such superficial analysis of the data in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department CMSdemonstrated that the booking numbers were issued from at least two separate series, with no clear correlation withbooking location or booking agency.However, the fundamental fact regarding the Harris County, Texas, remained, that Carol Ann Davis, who wasreportedly taken at around 10:45am, and who was reported as being in custody of the sheriff, was not listed on theSheriff’s online system over 12 hours later.
