On March 20, 2020, convicted murderer Kenneth Vodochodsky will come up for parole with the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole.

Vodochodsky was convicted for his role in the murders of Atascosa County Deputy Sheriffs Thomas Monse and Mark Stephenson along with DPS Trooper Terry Miller on October 12, 1999. Vodochodsky was originally convicted of Capital Murder by a jury in Karnes County and sentenced to Death. The Death Sentence was overturned by an appellate court, and Vodochodsky subsequently pleaded guilty to murder in exchange for three 30- year sentences.

I personally do not believe this individual has served an adequate amount of time for these heinous, cowardly ambush murders of three fine brave peace officers, all who had families, including children, that were left behind.

Please join me in protesting the parole of this criminal. Form letters will be available at the front desk of the Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office from January 2 until March 16. If you wish to protest his parole, just drop by the office at 1108 Campbell in Jourdanton, sign a letter and we will mail it to the Parole Board for you. If you would like a letter to be emailed to you that you can sign and mail in yourself, you can call 830-769-3434 ext. #2224, and request the secretary to email it to you.
