The two-time convicted felon, who is said to have voted during the probation, was arrested and charged in Houston earlier this week.

Convicted offenders are not eligible to vote in Texas until they are “fully released” from punishment, including probation.

“I wanted to get my voice heard to express my opinion,” Hervis Rogers said KPRC 2 During the March 2020 Democratic Elections held at the University of South Texas dormitory. “I shouldn’t have interfered with anything,” he added.

Rogers had a voter registration card in Harris County and even waited in line for seven hours to vote.

Local media outlets later revealed that the man had been convicted twice before of serious crimes and was on probation for a Conviction for second-degree theft for 1995 theft.

Rogers was arrested by authorities on Wednesday and charged with two counts of illegal voting. He was taken to a prison in Montgomery County.

“He has been convicted twice before of a felony,” said criminal justice attorney Christopher Downey Jr.. “It will extend his sentence to 25 years in everything.”

The arrests come at a time when voter fraud remains a topical issue across the country. In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott convened a 30-day special legislature to address voting rights and other issues.

TEXAS attorneys are expected to discuss voting reforms in a SPECIAL session following the Supreme Court’s ruling.

Democrats in Texas suspended the Republican-backed Voting Integrity Bill in May. Abbott later promised to continue debating the legislation during a special session and said he would support election integrity laws after the 2020 presidential election.

“What we all need to agree on is that we need to have confidence and trust in the outcome of our election,” Abbott said in March. “The thing is, voter fraud is happening.”
