In an astonishing decision, a Texas grand jury refused to indict a
Central Texas man Wednesday for shooting and killing an officer who
entered his home serving a warrant unannounced, an outcome the man’s
attorney says he’s never witnessed in his half-century long career.
On Dec. 19 just before 6 a.m., Burleson County Sgt. Adam Sowders, 31,
led a team of investigators in a no-knock marijuana raid conducted on
28-year-old Henry Goedrich Magee’s mobile home in Somerville, 90 miles
northwest of Houston.
An informant had told a sheriff’s investigator he had seen 10 to 12
marijuana plants in Magee’s home, along with rifles and a pistol, which
were later determined to be legally owned, and that he was a well-known
dealer in the area.
