Killer Behind the Badge

Susan White complained to friends and authorities about Deputy Joseph Kent McGowen, but nobody listened. Then he killed her.

Patsy, is there any current info on Kent McGowen, does he still maintain his innocence?

JOSEPH KENT MCGOWEN WEBSITE
"There are many people out there who know the truth;
that I am irrefutably innocent and that I was set up,
railroaded, and persecuted by the Harris County District
Attorney's Office and their suborned lying witnesses."

14th Court of Appeals

Remanded to the trial court for a new trial

February 3, 2000
 

"Ex-deputy retried in 1992 shooting death of woman

Wednesday, March 20, 2002
McGowen's 1994 murder conviction was overturned on the grounds that his
 lawyer was not allowed to make an opening statement at his first trial.
The 14th Court of Appeals in April 1997 threw out his initial conviction
and 15-year prison sentence and said McGowen should get a new trial."

HOUSTON CHRONICLE

"'Rogue cop' gets 20 years in killing

Ex-deputy found guilty second time
Published 05:30 a.m., Wednesday, April 3, 2002
 
Former Harris County sheriff's Deputy Joseph Kent McGowen described
by a prosecutor as a "rogue cop" -- was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years
in prison for murdering a woman nearly a decade ago.
 
Since McGowen's sentence falls under 1992 guidelines, he must serve at
least five years before being eligible for parole, said Prosecutor Vic Wisner."
 
 
"A WARRANT TO KILL
Joseph Kent McGowen is still behind bars. He is eligible for parole.
Susan's son, Jason, works in construction in Louisiana and is now
married with a child."
