Robert Ussery DENIED BOND – continues to be held in FEDERAL PRISON!
SideThorn aka Robert Ussery appears before Texas Judge in an attempt to make bail.
Man accused of harassing victims and relatives of those killed in the Nov. 5 Sutherland Springs church massacre remains in Federal Custody.
Emotional testimony from a key investigator of the Robert Ussery harassment/weapons case helped convince Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia to deny the request for bail. Robert Ussery aka Side Thorn (55), appealed a detention order issued by another judge last month. Today, Ussery was denied.
Texas Ranger Terry Snyder testified that Robert Ussery had engaged in a pattern of harassment to those who lost loved ones in the mass shooting before. Ussery and his girlfriend, Jodi Mann (56), were arrested on March 5th, 2018. The pair of conspiracy loud mouths confronted First Baptist Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy at Pomeroy’s Church once again with more abusive language and threats. Pomeroy’s daughter was among those killed by the gunman. Ussery and Mann are unconvinced a shooting took place, no matter how much proof they are given. Ussery and Mann focus on everything being a hoax, while good information is laughed at by the two. They believe all tragedies are easily falsified by the United States Government.

Though the pair made bail on the State charges, the matter resulted in a restraining order being issued against them, according to testimony and court records. During the incident, the pair had Go-Pro video recording equipment that recorded the encounter. That helped agents develop a federal case against Ussery.
When agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms reviewed the video, it showed Ussery handled a gun by the pickup the pair were in, placed it under a mat in the truck and told Mann that if there’s a question about the gun by police, Mann should claim ownership, an ATF agent previously testified.
Ussery was convicted of felony burglary of a vehicle in 1984 in Brazoria County and is barred by federal law from possessing a gun. In May of 2018, agents searched his home and found 10 guns on the property, including a .50-caliber rifle, two assault-style rifles, two shotguns and 1,500 rounds of ammunition.
Ussery has been charged with being a felon in possession of a gun. U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad last month ordered him held without bond. Ussery was determined to be a danger to the communtiy. Robert Ussery’s lawyer, Guillermo Lara, filed a motion seeking to overturn Bemporad’s order and argued that some of the government’s allegations were incorrect.
In denying the request for bond, Judge Garcia said Ussery is free to believe any conspiracy theory he chooses, but “he is not free to disturb the peace and tranquility of Sutherland Springs.”
