Since late last week alone, allegations have been revealed regarding cases ranging from driving while intoxicated to child sex assault.
Here are details on the accused public servants:
Michael Gebert, Pearland police officer
Gebert is accused of driving while intoxicated while in uniform and behind the wheel of his police cruiser. Gebert is a 16-year veteran of Pearland police and was once named officer of the year for the department's traffic division.
Gebert is on administrative leave pending the investigation.
Arnold Magana, Pasadena ISD police officer
Magana was arrested at his home last Friday night, accused of assaulting a family member.
The school district police department said any action taken in regards to Magana, who is a sergeant, will be "in accordance with Pasadena ISD board policy."
Brandon Ramirez, Houston Fire Department
The 27-year-old is accused of sexually assaulting an underage girl he met online.
According to an investigation, Ramirez allegedly chatted with the victim over the course of several weeks. Some of the messages, photos, and video of himself sent to the girl were sexually explicit in nature, investigators allege.
Investigators also said the HFD employee allegedly met up with the 14-year-old girl at least three times.
HFD relieved Ramirez of duty pending an "administrative investigation."
Terry Tennard, Alvin ISD police officer
The 42-year-old Tennard is accused having a sexual relationship with a Manvel Junior High student that has gone on for about a year.
Investigators say the student was 14 years old.
Tennard has been placed on administrative leave by Alvin ISD.
Marcus Ryans, Houston Police officer
Officer Marcus Ryans was charged with DWI on Dec. 18. Records show a passerby saw a person asleep at the wheel in the 8000 block of South Loop East.
When police showed up around 12:30 a.m., they allegedly found Ryans asleep in his personal car in a moving lane of traffic.
He was arrested, but because the alleged DWI occurred while he was not on duty, the Houston Police Officers Union is not representing Ryans.
Officer Ryans is currently on paid leave pending the outcome of an Internal Affairs Investigation.
