Secret Probation? Wow--Thanks For Your Service!

After all, secret probation beats going to jail, right?

Retired FBI agent charged in “secret probation” scheme

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A retired FBI agent is indicted for allegedly scamming a woman out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The Justice Department says William Roy Stone Jr., 62, convinced a Granbury woman in 2015 that she was on “secret probation” for drug crimes in “Judge Anderson’s Court” in Austin.


Stone gave the woman a series of conditions, including reimbursing him for expenses incurred; and that if she didn’t comply, she risked imprisonment and the loss of her children.

Stone ultimately convinced her to pay him about $800,000, which he used to buy cars and a house.


Stone was indicted earlier this week on a slew of charges, including wire fraud and false impersonation of a federal officer, and made his initial court appearance Friday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Rebecca Rutherford.

If convicted, Stone faces up to 178 years in federal prison.

My bet--he won't get probation. Secret or otherwise.


  1. A description of how the FBI currently operates. I don't know how much is true, but it's certainly a bleak and dismal view.


  2. I guess this guy isn't part of the 99% of honest FBI agents that Hannity talks about.
