I don't see the problem here folks. So even if he did have this "secret sexual affair" with the engaged white girl that no one but his family apparently knew of. That alone is reason enough to execute the a**hole. Bye Rodney.

So you don't think a white girl would be seeing a black man is that it? Well in my experience white women love a black, uneducated, unhygienic, black man with no future and no inclination to ever amount to anything that requires work or dedication. They all can't get enough of being called bitches and ho's and if they get pregnant they love it when the brotha leaves them. They want a real black man not some Cosby Uncle Tom who goes to school and works for a livin. Hell yeah, they wants the real deal you know what I'm sayin?

New information about
Georgetown officer be connected to murder Wednesday's indictment of a Georgetown policeman on rape and kidnapping charges impact a decades-old capital murder case? Sgt. Jimmy Fennell, Jr. Is charged with sexually assaulting a woman at gunpoint last October.

Some say the cop's arrest could help set another man free from death row.

It was 1996 when 19-year-old Stacey Stites was found strangled on the side of a road in Bastrop.

A jury convicted Rodney Reed of murder and sentenced him to death. Supporters have long insisted police have the wrong man behind bars.

The appeal seeking a new trial suggests Stites' live-in boyfriend, Jimmy Fennell -- then a Giddings police officer -- was to blame.

The motive? The defense claims Fennell was jealous when he found out Stites was having an affair -- with Reed, whose DNA was found on the body.

"It's going to have a big impact on him," says Rodney Reed's father, Walter Reed. "And on the justice system."

He hopes his son is released soon. And says he isn't surprised by Fennell's arrest.

"It's what I had been expecting -- sooner or later," the father told CBS 42's Rebecca Taylor.

The arrest has many in Reed's camp optimistic for a new trial.

"As everyone familiar with the case knows, Rodney's defense theory has been Jimmy Fennell and not Rodney Reed was involved in the Stacey Stites murder," said death penalty activist Bryan McCann.

"I don't feel that they looked into (Fennell) at all," Walter Reed said.

No one at the Bastrop County District Attorney's office would comment on the case Wednesday.

"We see it as an opportunity to raise discussion in Rodney's case," McCann said. "We're much more interested in proving Rodney's innocence than necessarily proving Jimmy Fennell's guilt about anything."

The appeal goes before the court of criminal appeals on Jan. 16.

The attorney general's office is prosecuting the appeals case. They, too, declined a request for an on camera interview.

A man who has been accused by numerous women of rape and whose explanation for the DNA evidence is contradicted by the ME(the semen was deposited directly before the murder, not the day before as he claims) cries racism and people believe him? How gullible can you be?

First of all, all of you who are talking all this BS about Rodney don't even know him. Rodney was a great friend and would never do anything to hurt anyone. I went to school with Rodney and know that he is a wonderful person. For any of you to judge him because of his race is bullshit. Rodney did not get a fair trial. I worked with Stacey at HEB and I knew about her affair with Rodney. OMG...she had sex with Rodney before her death and that automatically makes Rodney a murderer. Rodney is innocent and I stand by him 100% because I know the real Rodney. Look, at the real murderer...Jimmy Fennell who is in prison for sexually assaulting a woman while on duty. Rodney is black so that makes him guilty...Jimmy is white so that makes him innocent. Face the facts Rodney is innocent and is serving time for a white man that should be doing the time for Stacey's death. I am a white woman and I will stand behind Rodney every step of the way. I will be holding up a Free Rodney sign because the man is INNOCENT!! Fight for your rights, Rodney and I know I speak for everyone in Bastrop, Texas. We love and support you!!

Maybe you should get out of Texas so you can see that there are many white women who are attracted to educated men, regardless of color. I would hope that by your name you have been exposed to more than what the State of Texas has to offer.

Reed broke into the home of a 12 year old girl, raped her and almost beat and choked her to death. He was matched by DNA. Don't give me this shit that he is innocent. He is a serial rapist and murderer of women.

For those of you who think Reed is innocent, I feel extremely sorry for you. When I was 19 I was dumb enough to give a stranger a ride. The stranger was Rodney Reed. He said it was very cold and needed a ride home. When we stopped on the rode for him to get out he grabbed the back of my hair and slammed my face into my steering wheel. We faught for at least 10 min. Kicking, punching, pulling my hair, stomping on my face and telling me that he was going to kill me. I knew that if I did not fight then I would be dead. Finally I saw head lights and I got away. I thank God that I was not sexually assaulted and strong enough to get away. Reed is a wild animal that is in the cage where he belongs! He raped a 12 year old who I met when I testified, people need to think about the victims, there are a lot of them! Linda Schlueter
