This is not the first time this officer, Wesley Walters was charged with sexual assault. He also faced similar charge a few years ago as a police officer in another county. He has a history of family violence and anger issues.

This guy and his entire family are nothing but trouble makers. His parents encouraged him to carry guns and to pull them on people. He pulled a gun on the wrong guy one night back in highschool. He needs to go to the pen for life. How does a guy like this get a officer job? He caused alot of problems his entire life along with his parents.

His family are not trouble makers, it was a piece of pipe, shown to Jeff. His family that I can recall never caused any problems. Wes is to blame for his own actions, and consequences will be faced.

I agree that he should be blamed for his own actions and his family shouldn't be brought into this. I hate when people put their nose where it doesn't belong!! Highschool was only a miles long and life is several miles long its great when people can't get over things that happened back in highschool!! I don't agree with what he has done at all, but I hate people that bring everyone's family members into everything!!

As adults, we are resposible for our own behavior and we have to accept the consequences when that behavior is inflicted upon others. It doesn't matter what has happened in the past when you know the difference between right and wrong....especially when you know the law.

How can you administer the law as an officer
of law enforcement when your own actions
are actions which are above the law? He gives
law enforcement a bad name. There is absolutely
no way to tell how many people he gave the shaft as an officer as a result of his anger issues.
All his prior cases he was involved in should
be dismissed.

I completely agree with this, officer Walters, was very well known for his anger issues. His behavior has nothing to do with his family though at all, I'm sure they are good people & they never expected their son to become a crooked cop! However, This is not the first time a perverted officer has worked for or been terminated from the Big Sandy Police Staff either. Big Sandy has been known for their crooked Police Officers, They run off all the good friendly police officers that actually care about its residents well beings, & thats bull sh*t! CROOKED, CROOKED, CROOKED! Until you have lived in Big Sandy, you will never understand though. I plan on moving in the very near future!!

This is really rediculous that all of the posts are jumping to these conclusions. I have been there at these peoples homes, I have seen her hit him with this paddle, and I have seen him hit her as well. You should have all the facts FIRSt then make a judgement. As far as him having anger issues, I have never seen them. I have spoken with him since the charges and he wont say much except that I saw what I saw and that 20 or more people saw this paddling too. At first, when I emailed Jodi I wandered what happened, if there was an arguement etc, but after she denied havig participated in this "paddle play" for years (which I saw myself on over a dozen occassions saying I didnt see what I saw)I knew that these allegations were false. I also, from the beginning knew that the news reporting she was held hostage was a farce as I have been with her shopping on many occassions within the last year of the marriage. I am not playing sides, but I know from the communication I have had since these charges were brought up, Jodi isnt telling the whole story by far. By the way, she gave me a paddle and encouraged my husband to spank me and said I would like it in 2007. All I am saying is dont jump to conclusions, they havent proved that she didnt consent to being paddled, and if she consented this is not illegal at all. If it were, she would be in jail, along with him, and myself and my husband would be there also.

FUNNY HOW THING WORK OUT. I KNOW WES AND JODI AND HAVE TALKED WITH SOME OF THEIR FAMILY AND THEY HAVE DROPPED THEIR DIVORCE SUIT, DOING GREAT, AND ALSO THE JUDGE DISMISSED THE PROTECTIVE ORDER IS WHAT I WAS TOLD.
I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT JODI IS BLAMING LAW ENFORCEMENT IN UPSHUR COUNTY FOR WRONGDOING AND ALSO THAT APPARENTLY THERE ARE NOW MORE VIDEOS OF HER WHIPPING HIM JUST LIKE HE WAS ACCUSED OF TOO. LOOKS LIKE THIS IS A GAME THAT GOT BLOWN OUT OF WHACK BY SOME COPS THAT WANTED TO MAKE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES.
I WISH MY FRIENDS, THE WALTERS, THE BEST AND WISH EVERYONE WOULD JUST LEAVE THEM ALONE, AFTER ALL, IF SHE ISNT MAD ABOUT ANY OF THIS AND HE ISNT, THEN LET THEM PADDLE EACH OTHER SOME MORE OR WHATEVER, ITS A WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEY TO DEAL WITH THIS.
GOOD LUCK TO WES AND JODI AND THEIR KIDS

I do know for a fact that Wes and Jodi Walters are back together and that Jodi dropped the protective order. They love each other very much and always have. I do know from talking to them both that a Upshur County officer had a hand in all of this and a hell of alot to gain from it. Realy sad to know that they would try and destroy their lives like this they just did not know how Wes and Jodi love each other. Hey guys yall hang in there we love yall. I know that I have never sceen two people more in love than them.

I am 47 yrs old and I hit a red fox crossing the road a few nights ago. My parents raised me to run over things every chance I got, so I will blame them if/when I ever have to go to court after running over someone. It's all their fault. Now does that not sound like a crock of crap? Good God people take some responsibility in your actions.

I really don't know how this cat ever was hired to be a police officer.

Okay,I went to school with Wes. He was a few years older than me. When I was a Senior I got to talking to him. Not sure how it started, but he was already an officer or going through the academy, I don't recall which. Anyways, he kept wanting to "hook up". And yes, I was old enough. But he kept talking about bondage things and I just wasn't into that kind of stuff. So yeah, I can see him getting with someone that would "enjoy" paddling and other things. Even though it's not "OUR" taste or doesn't look NORMAL to "US" doesn't mean that it isn't normal to them. Unless something else comes up from it, maybe we should just drop things. Good luck to him & his family.

Whatever happened to this man after these felonies were charged against him?
He is the same man that hit & ran over Gerald Peevey on May 23rd in Upshur County near Ore City, and so far he has not been neither been charged nor arrested for this. I am beginning to think that there could there be a cover up going on because there has been nothing about this incident on the news or in the newspaper. Now that he is considered disabled, he will never be able do the work he has done all of his life and we are being told that he may even lose his arm because of it.
He was walking on the side of the road to get gas after running out and according to Gerald Peevey's account in the police report, this same man swerved off the road and ran him over, however Michael Wesley Walters is claiming that he was walking down the middle of the road which is an untrue version of the account. I have a sneaking suspicion that instead this man was likely texting on his cell phone because they supposedly did blood work on them and said that neither of them was drunk. All someone has to do is subpoena his phone records during the time of the accident to see if he was texting on his cell phone to find out. Unless he was drunk or texting, why else would someone swerve off the road and literally run someone over in their 2010 Honda Accord?
Has anyone else heard about this accident/incident involving this Wes person happening?

Dear Perplexed and Puzzled,

Lets tell the whole story why dont we. This man, Mr. Peevey, was hit by a vehicle drivenby Mr Walters, this is true, and you claim there is some cover up. First, what has this got to do with the charges mentioned but you aslked what happened to those felonies, they were dismissed, all four of them. People in this country, under our system of laws, have the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilt. Mr. Walters wife reportedly recanted her story, I'm not sure what the deal is with that, but they reconciled I heard. This deal with Mr Peevey wasnt on the news because they dont usually put vehicle accidents on the news, nothing against either party. In your post you assume that Mr Walters account is incorrect and Mr. Peevey's account is correct. How do you know that? Only two people were there, and I cant say and you cant either unless you are one of them. You mention texting, I talked to Wes and know him personally I can assure you that he wasnt texting because he doesnt like texts or use them on his phone, sorry to burst your bubble. He may have been talking on the phone, I dont know or care, there is nothing illegal about talking on the phone or texting either for that matter. Speaking of our system of justice, you mention he hasn't been arrested on this incident, why would he be arrested, what for? Does he even know the Peevey fellow? What could be his motive, in our system it is assumed to be an accident iof thats what it is. Also, and by the way, LETS CLEAR THIS UP, MR. Peevey admitted to consuming alcohol on the day in question when asked by Wes Walters while Wes was on the 911 one call, its all on recording, he admitted to being under the influence, he also told medical staff on the scene that he had used other drugs the day in question. He didnt even know that Wes was the one that hit him. And lastly, Wes Walters did say he was in the roadway not the shoulder, and the Texas Highway Patrol report says the same thing from what I hear. Also, the evidence available to the officers clearly shows that Mr Peevey was in the road, just the fact that he was immobilized when struck by the vehicle and unable to move and landed in the middled of the road when he was hit by the mirror passenger side of the car (which presumably would cause him to be knocked further from the center of the roadway) is strong evidence that he was struck in the road. LAstly, you mentiuon some charge on Wes Walters, how does that have anything to do with this? I will say this, if Mr Peevey has a record it will come to light im sure, but guess what, that doesnt matter either, what matters is simple.
1. They dont know each other, so why in the world would anyone think this could have been anything but an accident, regardless of who is at fault?
2. The DPS says Peevey is at fault.
3. Neither texting or talking on a cell phone is a crime and there is no reason to beleive this contributed anyway and as I mentioned, I know Wes personally and I dont think he even texts anyway.
4. Peevey admitted to alcohol / illegal drug use use.
5. Wes told me he wanted the DPS to test him, they did, and he not only wasn't drunk, he had no traces of alcohol in his system.
6. The roadway in question has large "sleep bumps" on the shoulder that would make it nearly impossible to leave the roadway without knowing this.
