A Fayette County(TX) Deputy, C.J. Lehmann, despite the best efforts of doctors and medical professionals, has lost sight in his left eye. His right eye was damaged beyond repair after he was shot in the face whilst attempting to arrest a sex offender.
The Deputy is the single father of three girls and faces a long and difficult rehab and adjustment period. He was shot attempting to breach a door where a sleeze-bag had barricaded himself. As soon as he entered the room, he was shot in the face and blinded. The offender was arrested, of course, but the damage was done.
The Sheriff stated that Deputy Lehmann will always have a job. Like to help? Check out the Fayette County Sheriffs FB page. You can make a donation there. The Sheriff has cautioned potential supporters to beware of faux donation sites.
