A COMMITMENT TO SURVIVORS

[Excerpts] I have been in the field of Domestic Violence for over 14 years, and throughout my experience there have been many unfortunate reminders of why I, and many of us do the work that we do. On September 6, 2015 Deputy Cecilia Hoschet was shot and killed by her husband. He then took his own life at a fire department building several miles away. Several POV advocates attended the memorial services of Deputy Cecilia Hoschet, offering our condolences to her immediate family and her sheriff family. This beautiful service gave me insight to what an amazing woman she was, all she did for the community and how much she loved her six year old son. I sat and left there with a very heavy heart. I saw Donovan cry for his mommy; this was particularly heartbreaking... Although I never knew Cecilia personally, her tragic death is one that I will always remember. Her story motivates me to remain committed in our efforts to ending violence in our homes, families and communities. I don’t want another child to lose his/her parents the way that little Donovan lost his. I remain committed to our vision, a world without violence where no child is abused, no wife battered, no friend raped. A world without terror, without threats, without wounds from intentional actions... [Full article here]

[SC] Ex-cop husband of Judy Orr (Baldwin) arrested, charged with her murder

Judy Orr McWaters (Baldwin)

Ex York Police Officer James Harold Baldwin has been indicted by a grand jury and arrested for the beating death murder of his wife Judy on Dec. 14, 2016 - which he staged as accidental. James initially claimed that Judy had hurt herself falling while putting up Christmas decorations and then was killed in the crash that happened as he tried to get her to the hospital. The indictment says Baldwin “inflicted or caused to be inflicted blunt force trauma” to his wife’s head, causing her death. Family members had pushed for the case to be investigated since Judy was killed. Judy's sister said, “It’s sad that my sister’s life ended in pain.” From Judy's obituary, she was the owner and operator of Judy's Personal Touch, a member of Woodward Baptist Church, a member of the church's Women's Missionary Union, and member and secretary of the Carolina Thunder Christian Motorcycle Club. James Baldwin had also formerly been a police officer at the Columbia Police Department and a police dispatcher for the Chester County Sheriff’s Office. Since Judy's death James Baldwin is also accused of burning down a roommate’s trailer in York County, then trying to defraud the insurance company after the fire. Those charges are also still pending. [Google him here to follow his court case]

[FL] Said-suicide of Corrections Officer Charlotte Mae Webb (2005)

Corrections Officer Charlotte Mae Webb is said to have killed herself on July 29 of 2005. She's gone and can't say a word. What we know comes from 2 different Marion Correctional Institution supervisors who were both supposedly having a relationship with her and who both had much to lose - married Assistant Warden Gustavo Mazorra and married Sgt. George Sherrets. Charlotte's body was found on the floor of her home and she is said to have overdosed on antidepressants but no reference to testing was reported in the news so we don't know if it was assumed because of an open pill bottle or something of that nature. Charlotte is an officer and deserved a full outside investigation. 

WARDEN'S PAST INCLUDES AFFAIR WITH SUBORDINATE
May 9, 2010
[Excerpts] ...Nicketta Webb sees the [Marion Correctional Institution] prison every time she pulls out of the driveway of her small ranch across the street. It remains a raw reminder of her daughter. “He knew better,” she said. “He’s the assistant warden. He’s held to a higher standard.” Five years ago her daughter, Charlotte, was an entry-level corrections officer carrying on a dangerous affair with the prison’s second-in-command [assistant warden, Gustavo Mazorra]. It was one of several reckless decisions Charlotte made in the months before she [allegedly] took her own life. The assistant warden was transferred but never disciplined for the inappropriate relationship. He escaped sanction, and this spring earned the promotion of his career: He became the warden at the Zephyrhills Correctional Institution... Mazorra declined to discuss his affair with Charlotte Webb and the events of five years ago. “I made a stupid mistake”... Mazorra was shuttled 50 miles away to Lancaster Correctional Institution in Trenton, where he took a “voluntary demotion” to colonel... But the incident was never treated as a disciplinary matter. There was no internal investigation. No reprimand. No letter of counseling in Mazorra’s file. No suggestion of any missteps in the evaluation that followed seven months later, when Mazorra received a perfect 5 in the leadership category that covers professionalism with subordinates... The only critical memo in Mazorra’s file was dated Feb. 4, 2000, when he allowed the postage machine to run out at a Miami-Dade prison, delaying the delivery of outgoing mail. “Behavior of this type cannot be, and will not be, tolerated,” the memo said... [T]he affair wasn’t treated as a disciplinary matter because no policy had been violated. Nothing in the prison code of conduct, and nothing in the rules governing state employees, bars a supervisor from dating a subordinate... At the same time, Charlotte was involved with another married superior at the prison [Sgt. George Sherrets Jr.], one of the sergeants on her midnight shift... [He] came clean with investigators and his bosses after her death. He acknowledged using drugs with her. He was promptly fired. But Nicketta believes the “good ol’ boy” system took care of Mazorra... Nicketta, 63, remains haunted by her daughter’s death. Charlotte’s son, Jeff Lovelady, can’t accept it. He was 15 then. He talked to her by phone a few hours before she died. He was visiting his father in a Georgia hospital, and his mother promised to come pick him up in a few days. Promised — a word used sparingly in this family for commitments that came from the heart. “It’s always puzzled me,” said Lovelady, choking back the tears.. A few years ago, still burning with questions, he went to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office to request a copy of his mother’s death investigation. The clerk asked why. He explained he was Charlotte’s son. He took comfort in her response: "She said that's one case nobody will ever forget." [Full article here]

The school released a statement that referred only to one witness to the incident, although the security video shows two women in the office at the time. This statement was released through Academica, the charter school’s management company: “The school followed procedure in response to the unfortunate incident which occurred in the office. The witness reported the incident to administration as soon as the parent left the premises and the school immediately reported it to the Department of Children and Families who contacted law enforcement. The school is continuing to investigate the incident and protocol. The parent, who is a police officer and who often visited the school in uniform, surrendered himself to authorities. The person witnessing the act is an expectant mother who was unsure if the parent had a weapon. She says that at the time she feared for the safety of the victim as well as that of her unborn child”... His plea hearing has now been set for May 15th. Rosario, a 24-year veteran, has been suspended with pay since his arrest. If the plea agreement avoids a criminal conviction on his record, he possibly could return to work. [Full article here]

May 15, 2018
[Excerpts] A Miami-Dade police officer who was captured on surveillance video beating his 14-year-old daughter at school appeared in court Tuesday, where a judge [Lisa Walsh] told him to stay away from his daughter and her mother. "What happened was that the judge issued a stay-away order between my client, Mr. Rosario, and his ex-wife and his daughter.
