Case in point, here's a story from KETK and Guillory's response the following day.
Story by Roger Gray:
He describes himself as autodidactic, which means self taught.
And he is the loudest element in the case of murdered John Tyler teacher Todd Henry.
And, he is a bishop to boot.
He claims to be the Ombudsman General. He claims to be a Unitarian Bishop.
Both of those titles were self-awarded by Leroy Joseph Guillory, who has now inserted himself into the case of the John Tyler High School stabbing suspect.
According to sources in Henderson, where he owns a home, Guillory made several accusations of racism there against the police department, U.S. Post Office, and the city in general.
He came from California, where he ran for congress, garnering 1.1% of the vote, and more importantly, went to prison.
Guillory was given 15 years in prison in Los Angeles for kidnapping. He was apparently paroled and formed his own governmental watchdog group, Ombudsman International.
The group has two addresses, one in Washington D.C. and one in Beverly Hills. Both are PO Boxes.
He claims to be a Unitarian bishop, but that denomination has no true ordained clergy.
And now he represents the family of the accused John Tyler stabber.
And he has made the firing of court-appointed attorney Jim Huggler his mission…
And that has earned him the scorn of Judge Jim Getz who has banned Guillory from the courthouse grounds.
Guillory has been quoted as claiming the entire process is racist, and the city to boot.
Whether he continues to be a presence in this case isn’t much in doubt.
Unless of course, he is named a Cardinal.
Tuesday we told you about Bishop L.J. Guillory, who is involved in the case of the student accused of stabbing a teacher to death at John Tyler High School.
He still says he is a Bishop in the Unitarian Church, and that the Smith County justice system is so racist, a fair trial for the accused stabbing suspect is impossible.
We sat down with him today…
He claims a doctorate of divinity from Bailey’s Temple, and Christ Paradise Church in Tyler.
“I didn’t assume it, it was bestowed on me.” He says.
“By whom?” we asked.
“By an Archbishop and 7 Bishops.”
He owns up to his time spent in prison, but Guillory has a bigger message to deliver.
He claims that attorney Jim Huggler, who represents the John Tyler High School stabbing suspect, is incompetent,
“My problem with Mr. Huggler,” Guillory says, “is the problem I would have with anyone who lies to the clients mother and other individuals about what he did and what he didn’t do.”
“I am an outstanding attorney,” Huggler told us by phone late Thursday. “I am a past president of the Smith County Bar Association. I am a past president of the Smith County Criminal Defense Attorney’s Association. I am a speaker for the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. I am board certified in criminal law, and there are about 838 lawyers out of about 80,000 that have achieved that level of professionalism.”
Huggler says this is interfering with what is a very serious case…
“He’s crossed the line himself and he’s done it multiple times,” Huggler told us.
“That’s not inserting yourself,” Guillory responds. “Any American can do that. Unless you’re black…in Tyler.
And Guillory also says, Judge Floyd Getz is racist.
“For a judge to publically lynch you, to publically humiliate you…” he complains.
And he says it is the corrupt Smith County justice system that has preordained the outcome in this case…
"The Judge has already predetermined how this was going to work,” Guillory says. “That everybody was in place. Oh Bishop Guillory is coming here to change things. I don't like the way he's doing things boss. Can you please get rid of him for me? Bring that negro forward. I'll deal with that negro. Negro what are you doing here? Didn't you go to prison. Didn't we taint your name? Get your tail out of here. But, what he don't understand is that there is still people in Washington that listen to me."
Thanks, Roger Gray, for reporting on this. People like Guillory really taint those who are really trying to make positive changes in the justice system.
