The illegal use of methamphetamine has affected many, and the addiction does not discriminate. People from all walks of life are using the drug, and
this particular incident with a prominent attorney reveals what many may not realize- just how far and wide this dangerous drug has extended it's
Within the last month, a prominent prosecutor in the Texas Panhandle injected himself with methamphetamine twice at an apartment and prepared to use
the drug in his office, a secretary said in a court filing.
District Attorney Richard J. "Rick" Roach took the drug out of his desk at his Pampa office last week and was about to take it when she left the room,
secretary Rebecca Bailey said in an affidavit that is part of a petition to remove Roach from office.
Gray County Attorney Joshua Seabourn filed the petition Wednesday, the same day Roach was charged on four federal counts that accuse him of possessing
methamphetamine and coc aine, and the unlawful possession of a firearm by a drug addict.

This arrest is appalling. I wonder how many addicts this attorney helped put away, for committing the same crime he is accused of. If I had a lawyer
retained, I would be looking hard at him/her, that's for sure.
