The county has awarded a settlement of $395,000 to a Bexar County Sheriff’s deputy who was terminated for participating in the rally in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021, according to a report by Texas Scorecard:

Former Lieutenant Roxanne Mathai sued the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office for wrongful termination after she was fired for attending the January 6 rally. 

“I am grateful for the unwavering support of my attorney … and the countless individuals who stood by me throughout this challenging ordeal,” Mathai said in a statement after the settlement was reached. “This settlement not only provides closure for me personally but also sends a powerful message that wrongful termination will not be tolerated.”

Despite the county paying Mathai for her termination, Monica Ramos, a spokeswoman for Bexar County, told The Epoch Times that the county denies any wrongdoing.
