MCTXSheriff Investigates Tampering With Governmental Document

On May 23, 2019, Detectives with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation regarding allegations of tampering with a government document. This investigation began after a person affected by this incident reported to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office that a protective order was applied for in Montgomery County by someone who was not, in fact, the actual person requesting the protective order. Through a detailed investigation, a person suspected of falsifying the governmental document was identified as Tamara Young-Hector (B/F) 49 years of age from Willis, Texas.

During the investigation, the defendant was captured on a surveillance video system entering the Montgomery County District Clerk’s Office on May 21, 2019, which is the date of the offense. Further electronic evidence revealed that Tamara was also at or near the District Clerk’s office at the time of this offense. Detectives interviewed numerous witnesses and collected additional pieces of evidence and presented the case to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office for review. A warrant was subsequently issued for tampering with a governmental document via District Judge Paul Damico.

Tamara Young-Hector is a current council member for the City of Willis Texas however, it was determined during the investigation that Tamara was not acting in an official capacity as a member of the City of Willis Council during the alleged offense.

On June 20, 2019, Tamara Young-Hector turned herself in at the Walker County Sheriff’s Office and has been charged with Tampering with a Government Document/State Jail Felony. Tamara has since bonded out.
