Documents Reveal More About Brandon Robertson's Past

KLTV has obtained a copy of a hand-written letter by Robertson to a Gregg County judge pleading guilty to a felony charge for possession of controlled substance, and ultimately asking the judge for probation.

In it, he says he's battled an addiction to pain medication for years after a car accident that ultimately ended his eight year career in law enforcement. He says because of his addiction, he lost his repo business and his life as he knew it.   Robertson goes on to say he found God again and wants to establish a Christian family for his two teenage daughters. 

Keep in mind, his arrest happened after he served as a police officer for three different East Texas agencies. 

Thursday KLTV spoke with the Kilgore Police Department where Robertson served less than a year beginning in 1995 and eventually resigning in 1996 after the department marked his performance as "unsatisfactory."  

"During that time frame we have one year probation, he had three fleet accidents during that time frame that is not acceptable for the police officers that we like to produce here, so we had confronted him with that he decided to voluntarily resign from the Police Department here, and that's the reason that he separated his service here," says Captain Randy Hancock with the Kilgore Police Department.

In his file, we also found a voluntary statement he made to detectives at the time of his arrest in 2004, telling them he started using speed in 1999 or 2000 getting it from his cousin. Robertson says at first he used meth "occasionally to party." But Robertson goes on to say once he started his repo business, he hung out with the wrong crowd and became an addict, using it everyday.
