Grand Jury Indictments

May Deliberations

(Note: An indictment is not an indication of guilt, but rather a citizen jury’s verdict that a prosecutor has enough evidence against a person to proceed with felony charges.)

Those facing trial include:

• Camilo Rodriguez, 35, of 611 Bruns in El Campo for failure to register as a sex offender on June 20. Convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child on Aug. 10, 2010, he is required to report changes in his employment and allegedly failed to do so.

In a separate action, the grand jury indicted Rodriguez of sexual assault of a child on Nov. 1, 2014.

An assault family violence with prior conviction indictment was handed down as well. In that case, he stands accused of using his fist to strike a woman and otherwise harming her on Nov. 6, 2018. The indictment notes he has a history of family violence.

Rodriguez has a prior felony conviction for aggravated robbery on March 16, 2006 in Harris County.

Superseding Indictment

A superseding indictment adds to or corrects information in a previously issued indictment. The following were handed down:
