An investigation by the KHOU 11 News I-Team revealed that department policies for both the Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff's Office allow police officers and deputies to return to duty before being cleared of criminal charges.

"That was my baby boy," recalled Lois Roy. "My only child and I miss him so much."

Roy's son, Charles Roy Jr., was shot and killed by a Harris County deputy in March 2011.

"Thirty-three years old" said Roy. "There was no reason, no reason for that."
