I believe the hard work and relentless pursuit of these individuals goes to show we take crime against our youth serious, and we will not back down against anyone who threatens to or harms the youth within our community.
* UPDATED: Josh Davis is still in custody at San Patricio County Jail, where he was admitted after being arrested at the probation office in Sinton, Texas. Johnny Davis, likewise, remains in Nueces County Jail.
