There is a new plague affecting our judicial system here in Harris county, Texas called the Pinocchio Scam that was started by two women Christine and Paula Trent.
This is how it works: The two women move into your home and live there for a while scoping out your most valuable belongings. Then they call the police on you and have you arrested on a felony assault charges while obtaining a protective order keeping you away from them, and your home which gives them plenty of time to wipe out your home with the blessings, and protection of the Harris county District Attorney. You ask yourself, does it get worse? you bet! Before you go to court, their crimes will not be investigated, and you will have to keep your mouth shut accusing them of theft, because you will be violating the protective order in which will land you back in jail. After several months you will find out that the prosecutors will let them lie all through your trial. The Harris county prosecutors are more interested in having you convicted than investigating and finding out their scam. These women also tried this on another family in Conroe and scared the man so bad, he fled to Honduras wrecking his family, and marriage. These to women are still walking the streets of Houston and are considered dangerous. If you see them, do not let them move in with you, let them around your family, and keep your doors locked!
