Tia Torres Husband – Aren Marcus Jackson (A.J.)

Tia Torres husband, Aren Marcus Jackson (A.J.) is currently an inmate jailed on conviction of multiple felony charges, following his no contest plea to them. And Tia Torres husband was sent to prison on a bum rap, according to his wife.

According to some sources, Tia met Aren during the 1980s vampire craze, when she was in her “vampire period”. She was trying to find the owner of a certain dog so they could release that dog to her. The owner happened to be in a California prison at the time. Torres used an “inmate locator” site and found the guy.

The two became pen pals and when she ran across a photograph of him she thought he “looked like a vampire”. On his release from prison in 2006, Aren Marcus Jackson became Tia Torres husband – they got married on Halloween. He later was imprisoned again on “bum rap” where he remains until now, 2016.

Tia Torres Husband’s 2007 Arrest

In September 2007, Aren was on parole, residing with Tia Torres on a rural property in Agua Dulce, California. On a September morning his parole agent Larry Dorsey accompanied a few Los Angeles County deputy sheriffs to perform a parole search of the residence.

Based on evidence recovered, Tia Torres husband was charged with 11 felonies, including second degree burglary of a vehicle, unlawful taking of a vehicle, receiving stolen property, grand theft and other.

It was also alleged that Aren Marcus Jackson had two prior convictions for felonies (including attempted murder of police officers) within the California’s “Three Strikes” law, and five other prior convictions. Aren pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Tia Torres then operated an animal rescue on the property. She was also hiring parolees to work for her organization. The property the couple lived in included multiple-acre land, their home, a trailer (where other parolees often lived), kennels for pitbulls and other rescue dogs.

The older children of Tia Torres and her husband rented another house to the north on adjacent property, along with several roommates.

By the summer of 2007, Aren Marcus Jackson (A.J.) had been living with Tia Torres in the residence for about 16 months. Parole agents had been to Tia Torres husband’s property numerous times, to search or just check in. A.J. was aware his home and property could be searched at any time.

In August 2007, a Los Angeles County detective contacted Agent Dorsey saying he suspected A.J. was involved in an auto burglary in the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys in June 2007. Personal property was stolen from the car, and someone attempted to use one of the stolen credit cards at a gas station. Torres owned the truck the man at a gas station was driving. Agent Dorsey believed the man from the video footage was Tia Torres’s husband…

Detective Dantice and Agent Dorsey agreed on taking Aren into custody, given his criminal history etc.

Dorsey phoned A.J. On September 5, 2007, asking him to report to the office that same day. He did not report to the office on that day, so Dorsey filled out a “miscellaneous decision” form as he suspected this “second-strike” parolee of criminal activity. He stated that Tia Torres husband was avoiding supervision, and requested an arrest warrant to be issued.

Aren Marcus Jackson said Dorsey and him agreed to report to the parole office on September 6, but when Aren came, Dorsey was not there. He waited for a while and then left. A.J. ‘s words were corroborated by his wife and his parole agent before Dorsey, Jose Angeles (could be seen on the television show – Pitbulls and Parolees). On September 6 morning Dorsey went to the residence to conduct a parole search, while A.J. was in his truck in front of Dorsey’s office.

They searched the home. Aren Jackson takes medical marijuana by prescription for migraine headaches, which they found. The deputies also searched the north residence and found a stolen motorcycle in the garage.

Two locked boxes belonging to Tia Torres husband were opened at the station. Dantice found heroin and drug paraphernalia inside, as well as stolen driver’s licenses and Social Security cards.

Aren Jackson admitted to owning the truck in the video, but said it was not him inside, and could have been any one of about 7 other men living or working at the property.

Sometime after the ruling, Tia Torres husband entered into plea negotiations. An agreement was worked out. Defendant withdraw plea of not guilty and entered pleas of no contest. Some counts were dismissed. A.J. admitted to prior conviction of attempted murder. The final sentence was 15 years 8 months. An appeal from A.J. followed. Aren and Tia argue that the warrantless search was arbitrary, capricious and harassing.

Prior Conviction of Tia Torres Husband

Aren Marcus Jackson of Laguna Niguel and Brian Thomas Greco of Arcadia were arrested in October, 1993 after allegedly stealing a Porsche. Aren was 23 and Brian was 27 at the time.

Monday, deputies stopped a pickup truck with a camper shell pushing a Volkswagen. The suspect pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the first deputy. Another deputy shot at the gunman, the gunman fired back and hit the deputy’s boot. Greco, the pickup driver, sped off. Jackson hopped into the patrol vehicle and escaped. Fifteen minutes later, the patrol car found abandoned car several miles away.

The Volkswagen was stolen, and Jackson’s fingerprints were found on the Volkswagen. Jackson was on parole at the time. Thursday, Jackson was arrested at his girlfriend’s house. Inside the Porsche was one shotgun and two handguns – all stolen. Jackson was held at Costa Mesa Jail on grand theft auto, violating parole, and felony evasion, and attempted murder.

Just to clarify, Tia Torres’ husband, isn’t in jail for life. A.J. was threatened with life due to California’s three strikes law, but his current sentence is under 16 years.

Is Aren Marcus Jackson Guilty or Not?

Is Aren Marcus Jackson in jail on a false charge? Was he sent to prison on a bum rap? The petition on change.org to Pardon Aren Marcus Jackson of Villalobos Rescue Center was signed by 109 people and is now closed. His wife Tia is still fighting to prove that her husband is not guilty and the whole thing was an unfair judgment.

AJ who began to relax under the effect of the dogs, came up with the thought of sharing them with other parolees. The program became a success rehabilitating parolees and helping them get back into society. The program was featured in various news stories, and producers were offering to film reality TV series… When all hell broke loose.

Tia Maria Jackson-Torres says she won’t give up fighting for her husband and can’t wait to reveal all the details of this pending case, when she can.

        This is a load of crap… This whole thing! These people are the problem with America… I mean, has ANYONE read this story in an objective manner??? Heroine, stolen motorcycle…. But the police are wrong here???!!!!??? Come on people, years ago I was facing multiple felonies and YEARS in prison… Why? Because I did illegal things… Now I don’t and I don’t have to worry about anything. This moron couldn’t even stay out of jail for 2 years, used a stolen credit card, robbed a car, used DRUGS – of which marijuana is not one – and wants to blame everyone else for his actions. If you do something illegal, man up and take responsibility, stop trying to blame everyone else. This is disgusting and horrifying that anyone would support the idiocy promoted by this situation. IT ISN’T THE SYSTEM’S FAULT THAT YOUR DOPEHEAD HUSBAND IS LOCKED US!!! IT IS HIS FAULT FOR COMMITTING CRIMES, WTF THE 3 STRIKE LAW WAS OUT BEFORE HE EVER HAD HIS FIRST STRIKE!!! He needs to be locked up, and will probably commit more crimes when he gets out. That’s what blows my mind is that all of the ignorant, worthless excuses for people who are in jail are blaming someone else… TAKE RESPONSIBILITY, SET A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR CHILDREN, FIRST OFF DON’T COMMIT CRIMES… AND TIA SAYING, OH IT’S FOR VIOLENT OFFENDERS…. YOUR WORTHLESS DOPEHEAD HUSBAND IS A VIOLENT OFFENDER… LAST TIME I CHECKED FIRING A WEAPON AT A COP IS A VIOLENT OFFENSE… OR ANYONE FOR THAT MATTER. PEOPLE. LIKE THIS SIMPLY BANG DOPE AND BLAME OTHERS FOR THEIR PROBLEMS BY TRYING TO USE THE LAW AGAINST ITSELF… YOU’RE A DOPEHEAD, YOU SHOULD DIE IN JAIL AND DO THE WORLD A FAVOR. STOP ACTING LIKE A PATHETIC N***** AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR. YOUR ACTIONS. Tia, have your people that work there learn to speak like a normal individual, act like a normal person, stop committing crimes, and then maybe things will go better… Untio then you will simply blame everyone else for your idiotic and pathetic views on the world. I hope you read this and can be honest with yourself… I I know your girls and everyone else will be upset, but you should take this to heart and take responsibility for once and be honest with yourself.

        • Michele J Clark on

          Yeah I think that’s at the heart of WHY they think they got a bum rap… once you harm or try to harm a cop, they have it in for you. It’s suspected the heroin was planted in the box by the police bc keys were to be brought into the station to open those locked boxes, instead the police went ahead and broke them open. There was no history of hard drugs. They don’t know for sure who was driving the vehicle belonging to Torres.
          He’s a dumb ass if he did do this stuff…he had it good when he went back in so kinda doesn’t make sense. And 15+ years for nonviolent offenses pisses me off bc sex offenders and murderers do less time, get out and reoffend. I think they are more despicable than a car thief…bc he shot at a cop, even though he did that time, they screwed him. I live in CA, PLEASE KEEP SEX OFFENDERS IN JAIL.

            I agree with the sentences handed down its messed up. I was raped when I was 12 he was 42 and held me captive all night then stalked me for several months and he only got 10 yrs. after his release he reoffended numerous times finally at 60 something he was due to be released thankfully the prosecution had him tried as a sexual predator. he used fear on his young victims so his I’m too old to rape someone didn’t work. he’s now stuck till he dies in the mental facility within the prison. so yes they need to revamp the system and time given for different crimes

        • Bella on

          I would have to agree with you. I am tired if people not owning up to what they did. Stopby breaking the law and it wouldn’t be an issue. And yes they druid have a reason to ditch the property, his truck was used in a robbery. When the found him, they found a swollen motorcycle, and drugs (not talking about weed, he was on parole from previously stealing a car, and guns AND shooting a cop!!! It doesn’t matter if its a cop you don’t steal and shoot people. If he was such a great man, paid for his crimes, and felt bad about it, then he wouldn’t of stolen a motorcycle, and had drugs in HIS things. Its sad he can’t own up to whatthey he’s done.

        • Josh h on

          Yes sir. I have read the facts of the case in his motion for appeal (writ) and he’s guilty and further more his previous conviction was attempted murder onto police officers in which he brandished a firearm and shot a police officer in the foot while trying to escape in a stolen vehicle. That being said this young man should’ve known that he had to walk the line when he got out. Return to using drugs and doing crime and unfortunately now is going to return to doing 15 years eight months… no victim here The system but a victim of his own actions. And at best t Tia Torres is in capable of managing parolees because she is incompetent or she is also an active addict in the throes of addiction trying to cosign their bullshit or throwing her husband under the bus for drugs that belong to her. I have three terms and 10 years behind the walls and it was always somebody else’s fault never my own!

            That does not make sense. Prisons are a high stake business. They are locking up America. The war is not on drugs but the American people. Drugs are highly addictive and addiction is a disease. Re-Hab would be much better than prison. My son took a rap for his pregnant girlfriend. He died from lack of medical care. This system is corrupt as can be. I found this first hand. I pray Tia and her husband will be able to work this out and he can come home and get in rehab

          I an a retired cop, then Security Analyst. I have met my share of’ Bad Boys’ just as I have met my share of not only Bad Cops but Bad Parole Officers to boot. And WAS that box truly AJ’s? As for the locked up cycles. I’ve found in many of my cases that , someone’s ‘SO CALLED FRIENDS’ were just using the guy that would go down the easiest. So Sir, LOOK and RESEARCH before you start running your mouth about ALL the ‘things’ YOU think YOU know. And having ‘done time’ as you’ve said, you don’t really know someone in this same situation?

            Well said! Shocking how judgmental most are in this world, we will never know everything or all the details in this or any other case we are in a part of. Stop talking like you know everything! Only god or the higher power you believe in can and will be the final judge. Whatever happened to live and let live? The good that Tia and her family are doing and trying to do is just that good. I will not judge her on the choice to marry whom she loves or surrounds her self with. Until you are going to open your business to people that society has turned their backs on and dogs the world has condemned, SHUT UP! You don’t have to support it or like it, nothing nice to say, say nothing….i.e SHUT UP! I hope the justice that is fair and true be served. Sadly corruption is every where and we will never truly know.

          • LT. Tom Tom on

            WOW!!!! As a police officer myself I’m taking serious doubt that you are a police officer. Every GOOD officer knows that a background check is what we use to put our investigation on the right track. The fact that the drugs in the box could have belonged to someone else is of no concern. This box was found on his property and therefor is the responsibility of his. Especially seeing his past background this is the the reason THE VERY REASON people should not gain a rap sheet. Officers judges and or a jury of your peers are always going to connect the dots and if you have a prior record then it’s going to make it even harder to prove ANY innocents. As an investigator connecting the dots is part of the job and when you see a rap sheet AS BAD as his then there’s just about no question the suspect is involved. Another thing you may want to know and should already know is cops don’t turn on cops unless it’s very clear they have broken the law. You speak as if these officers broke the law without even knowing them and that’s what tells me you are not a cop but maybe and it’s a BIG MAYBE a security officer that couldn’t make it as a cop. Either way there’s nothing leading to corrupt cops but more to a past that tells the story.

          • Sunshine on

            You tell the people before you to learn how to spell. Well you better go back and read your own because you have some bad spelling in there and bad grammar. So you should probably fix it. As for what everybody is saying and thinks about Tia’s husband doesn’t know all the details to know what he should get or not get but yes I get the issue of him pulling a gun on a cop and stealing the cop car. But you guys on here are saying your perfect? Because it sounds to me that you guys are all judging them. I was taught that only god gets to judge us nobody else. So before you do think it’s your right to judge know all the details and facts. Oh ya grow up all of you who think that it’s your right to put people down for there spelling, it seems like everyone of you who puts a person down for there spelling makes mistakes in there own message that you are using to shit on others spelling. I do spell my words differently sometimes to shorten my texts and sometimes my phone corrects words but some of the words aren’t locating in the phone dictionary so it will fix the word wrong at times. Tia is doing a great thing. Nobody has ever seen her do drugs or become an addict so why don’t you get off your dope and go to rehab and don’t knock someone when you are just ASSuming what someone else is doing. That just makes you guys all ASSES. SO GROW THE F… UP.

Watching the show you see that another Parolees storm stolen property on their grounds it was not her husband’s. He got sentenced to 15 years for somebody else’s mistake to me that sad that they had to be torn apart again right when their business was about to do such beautiful things together.

Assuming that AJ has served his time, what is his future status? Will he be permitted to work with Tia in New Orleans? Will he be required to stay in CA? If he is required to remain in CA for a period of time, will the rescue reopen a branch in CA so he can continue doing Tia’s good work in CA until they can be together again?

          All that being said, can we not focus on the criticisms of those poster and instead focus on the intended subject matter. Bottom line, he I assume is serving his time until he can get back on track to be productive in society like so many of the Parolees with Tia.

      Hi, I have seen first hand both sides if the justice system. I previously worked probation and recently retired from department of corrections after 25 years. I have seen guards turn bad, inmates turn guards into mules, and some inmates change. You can never tell how a person is in a couple years, but sometimes you get a gut feeling. I’ve seen the law over looked in sentencing where it was too harsh and also to lenient, also to many chances given to people who are connected. I believe the 3 strikes law is being abused. I don’t believe in the ‘snitch’ system, but if the person who was actually driving the truck, should have had the stones to be a man and step up. Aren got a bad rap due to lack of investigations! Just pray he doesn’t let this time get him down or hard like the lifers at Villalobos. Oh, my other side of the justice was being arrested on a couple BS charges, they couldn’t make them sick so they were dismissed with prejudice, (can be brought up against me again if I get into trouble)

          It’s funny how you can read this thread and tell who likes cops and who hates cops. I see the word JUDGING a lot on here. People all of us judge that’s why we’re all commenting. It’s so funny to see someone say stop judging AS THEIR JUDGING LOL. As human beings it’s our nature to judge and profile. It also tickles me to hear someone say cops aren’t aloud to profiles. If that were the case no one would ever go to jail. It completely blows my mind to hear someone say I HATE COPS I will never understand that but as a cop it has been well known that the majority of people that say that are law breakers. They are also usually the first to call the police for help. I truly believe a person is innocent until proven guilty but I also know that a persons past follows them so it’s important to obey the law so that if you ever have to face a judge they will see you haven’t been in trouble and your a decent responsible person. Now cop haters will hate this message and some will say fu– this cop or something else hated towards cops NOT KNOWING that it’s that attitude that shows their not yet responsible people. They have refused to grow up and mature. It’s too hard for them to hold a job and maintain a home for their women or children. these days it’s so easy for someone to hate and now society is turning on its own infutructure it’s turning on law enforcement and even the military. So everytime you hear of a cop being killed let it remind you that this is the beginning of americas falling.

      I agree, guilty or not guilty Aren Jackson has served his time. What’s wrong with the justice system? It makes no sense that this man would re-offend. His wife and family are national figures and he has too much to lose. Save the jail cells for rapists, child molesters and murderers. Let this family man go.

        That’s what I say… A rapist gets less time!!! Give it a rest…he did his time for his past offenses, waste of tax payer money to keep him locked up forever. If he does 15 yrs 8 months, he only has 5 yrs left…if he’s been behaving SHOULD be out soon. If he screws up again I’m just sorry Tia wasted so much time on him. Really should have kept his nose clean after first go round. You know he’s not innocent of everything.
        I think it’s ridiculous to keep him in if there’s no room for rapists childmolesters and murderers

      • Michele J Clark on

        I agree with you re sex offenders not spending enough time in jail…they are much worse than thieves or drug dealers!!! I’m thinking it’s time for him to get out anyway. Unless they are STILL punishing him for what he did ata age 23…cops are esp hard on those that shoot at them. He went back to jail in 2007, that’s 9 yrs ago. Parole?

        • rebecca wood on

          At 23 yrs you are not an adult why would he get out work so hard to stay out to just do all these bad things they are accusing him of doing they just wanted someone to do the time and picked him cause new was easy target if anyone has done more than 3 or 5 yrs in state jail you know what I am talking about why would you want to go back. My nephew got blackmailed at age of 17 got send to state jail for stuff he never did and police just wanted it closed these sick child killers and molesters get off judges let them go then they don’t register move away rape and kill another innocent child but this petty marijuana smokers get more time and really people marijuana do not make you want to go out and do those kind of things that they said Tia’s husband did she is good about picking out bad seed. We have to work on getting the real bad guys behind bars the lady killers the child killers and child rapiest should never get out they move away and cops loose track of them and judges don’t care live in md and I seen where a judge left two child molesters out in one day one guy said his hand accidentally went to his girlfriends daughters private part really bullshit this happens to much in this country like killing of woman and men very sad. God bless Tia and her family and you all are in my prayers but my nephew worked hard to make it when got out who wants to go back to the awful jail system maybe they need to work with them to make them better than what they come in rehabilitate them. Some can’t be helped but some can maybe this jails need to take notes from Tia on how to rehabilitate the prisoners that can be helped Merry Christmas and Happy New Year tia you and your family always watching even if rerun such great show and thanks so much for taking in the Parolees.

          It’s ALWAYS another person’s fault… You are the problem with America… NORMAL PEOPLE DO NOT ASSOCIATE WITH THIEVES AND CRIMINALS…. That’s why there is the saying, “birds of a feather flock together.” Responsible people don’t find themselves in these circumstances, only criminals and delinquents. He is in jail for HIS actions and refuses to admit it… That is disgusting and unacceptable. But in 2016 when everyone has an opinion and it matters… You get this outpouring of bs because people are simply ignorant. He should have been locked up for life and sentenced to death for attempted murder in a cop… But he wasn’t… AND HE WENT OUT AND COMMITTED MORE CRIMES… FELONIES AT THAT…. These people should not have rights, and should not be paid for by us the taxpayers. They should have to beg their family for ANY food and shouldn’t be a burden on society. Anything over a 1 year sentence should either have their citizenship renounced and sent to Siberia or just put to death. Period… It’s a tough view but would be productive.

      • Sharlene on

        In this society you are assumed guilty unless you can prove you are not. The justice and prison system are money making business. So everything they can use to keep you down is encouraged. When you get out and no one will give you a job, how are u suppose to eat and live. It’s all fixed to cause the inmates to fail. So They Will Get Sent Back To Prison, Which Will Put More Money In The Prison System. The 3 time system is only to make more steady money. I believe Aren should be release now.

THESE PEOPLE DON’T CARE ABOUT RIGHT AND WRONG, THEY JUST DON’T WANT TO BE CAUGHT. I AM. PROBABLY MORE FAMILIAR WITH THE INSIDE OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM THAN MOST COMMENTING ON HERE… BEEN THERE DONE THAT AND GOT THE T SHIRT, BUT I TOOK RESPONSIBILITY, I NEVER BLAMED ANYONE ELSE.

      I’m so sorry for you and your family! And especially your husband. I too know too well that our justice system is broken!
      I was also convicted of a “non-violent ” felony, and after rehabilitation and proving myself to be an upstanding citizen, I cannot get past the “felony” on my record
      Any time my ID is ran through by the police, whether be a traffic stop, or a victim of my car being stolen, The reaction of the “police ” totally changes. The laws definitely need to be tweaked!
      As for AJ, and the “three ” strikes ” law, that is complete BS! That should be for the sick ass sex offenders and murderers that are walking around free. I hope and pray that somehow his case will be taken over by a DA, and or judge with some since if reality, and a heart.
      The work he has done for the guys on parole that deserve a chance, and our four legged friends that do as well is just plain awesome
      I’m saddened by the fact that this has happened to your family in our “county “. And will be praying that this will somehow come to a positive ending.
      Sincerely yours,

      My son was given 16 years Federal time. The 3 strikes was dropped and the gun was dropped. This was a set up by West Valley City, Utah cops who 90% got fired due to set up drug stings. Planting the drugs and guns. Most of the inmates cases were dropped and they were released. But my son was not one of them. Then his gallbladder went bad, he got Hep c diabetes. They would not treat him for the gallbladder, calling it stomach problems and to change his diet., yeah right in Federal Prison. They refused to give him a proper diet for diabetes. He had a broken back, caused by the West Valley Police. He died 11/10/2014. He even had a bowel blockage they gave him a mild lacitive. The outside DRs (when he was found on the floor non responsive) they took him to a Hospitol. The DRs would order tests and medications and they refused to give them to him. Get him home before they kill him. It’s big business, the prison game.

      Ordinarily and many years agoI viewed police, as upstanding citizens,. and had respect admiration for them. I always complaiined about.how Hollywood glorified and romanticized dangerous criminals such as Clint Eastwood in “Escape from Alcatraz” and Tim Robbins in one of my favorite movies “The Shawshank Redemption” among far too many to mention. As it is I believe that murderers, rapists, paedophiles should be shot on the spot, and anybody that molests or kills their children should be spayed or neutered. People who abuse children have no business being parents, and those who are messing with drugs should be “sterilized” as well. However after many many years I have changed my outlook. Now I don’t trust them, and actually believe that cops can make hardened criminals look like amateurs. They don’t only commit crimes, but trivialize the “protect and serve” message
      Their crimes are sanctioned and encouraged. Cops are just fr*’#n bullies . They lie, cheat and will go to any lengths to make their case. They act like they are above reproach. I think payback shouldn’t be killing them in retaliation for their murders, and other crimes, for it would make us as bad as them.

      • Michelle Smith on

        In any large group of people there will always be a few “bad apples”. If you think the police are really that bad, perhaps you should try living without them for a few days. Yes, there are some who abuse the authority they have been given, and yes those offenders should be punished to the full extent of the law. However most police officers have a genuine desire to protect and defend those who are weak and those who are law abiding citizens. Perhaps this person should try doing what the police do, with the same restrictions they are under, and with the same mistrust and public hatred that has recently been encouraged by groups who are simply looking for trouble and their 15 minutes of undeserved fame. As the spouce of a 30 year military veteran, I have little patience for those who would villianize a group of people who put their lives on the line every day just to keep us safe and keep society running. How about doing what the police do yourself or better yet shutting up and leaving them to do their thankless job.

Regardless people who ring themselves out for others not for fame or fortune but because they truly care are wonderful. And until you walk a mile in another person’s shoe you have no place to judge instead of being so negative see some positive. Tia is an amazing human for doing what she does for the animals and other people she is a great example of how we should treat one another weather furry black white Asian military or wear blue she respects them all as their individual person and does not judge them on others actions.

            When we turn a blind eye to corruption at the highest level (Killary), why would the cops think any different ? The troops will follow the example if their leader. IF we elect a crook to run our country , expect the subordinates to be crooks too. BUT don’t blame the subordinates, blame the voters who chose to put a proven liar scammers in the white house.

            And btw, AJ’s charges included, multiple thefts, drugs, and shooting at a cop and stealing a cop car (while on probation) according to the article. IF that is true, 16 years is a gift.

    I believe that am was innocent of the charges. I believe a lot of that so called evidence could have been planted. It sounds like they have been trying to find something to pin him with since he got out. I’m a faithful watcher of pitbulls and parolees. I’m watching it now. He’s been in jail for 9 years over something that he hasn’t done. Its time to let him out and let him spend his life with his family. There was a lot of other parolees that drove the vehicle also. If the parolees loved an like they said they did. The one that actually done it should have stood up and said that I done it not him. No they let him go to prison for something that one of the others had done. I think it was all a bunch bulls__t. Its time that someone stands up and says it was me not him. It was just a bum rap.

    Forget about the other comment i posted. I misspelled some words. I believe that aj was innocent of the charges. I believe a lot of that so called evidence could have been planted. It sounds like they have been trying to find something to pin him with since he got out. I’m a faithful watcher of pitbulls and parolees. I’m watching it now. He’s been in jail for 9 years over something that he hasn’t done. Its time to let him out and let him spend his life with his family. There was a lot of other parolees that drove the vehicle also. If the parolees loved an like they said they did. The one that actually done it should have stood up and said that I done it not him. No they let him go to prison for something that one of the others had done. I think it was all a bunch bulls__t. Its time that someone stands up and says it was me not him. It was just a bum rap.

    First, California’s three strikes appears to NOT be working. Murderer”s get the same three chances as someone that steals something (I’m not talking burglary with guns). Three strikes seems unconstitutional!!!!

    Obviously, AJ was set up – most likely by his PAROLE OFFICER!!! Some PO’s like the power they have over people’s lives as if they were God. Why weren’t the other parolees even considered as the guilty party??
    Pick one guy (just because the PO could) and ignore the other parolees is not due process!

    The last court date was a joke (if it weren’t so sad)!!! Judge to judge to the brother of the judge that had previously sentenced AJ. The court system sucks!!! AJ is being used because of the tv show – PO, let’s show the world how we control people’s lives! We are God. AJ has been in jail 10 years waiting for his “due process” trial. He should be released with time served!!!

    Leave California if possible!!! Sorriest state of the 10 states I’ve lived in!!

    I’ve not been in jail, My dad, now deseased, committed horrendous crimes (no, he did not go to prison – he had criminal legal buddies in high places). The day my step- mother shot him was a good day for the world. Many people were safe again. His death was more humane than what he had done to other men and women for 40+ years!

    Why has the Change.org been closed? Why isn’t there a gofundme account to help “pay off” the PO that started this mockery of the justice system?

    Last, I do not like pit bull dogs! They terrify me. I do believe in the program Tia is working hard for, no it won’t change my mind about pits! I do believe in justice and AJ has not been given true justice!!

    Obama, all the terrorists and criminals you have pardoned – do something good you’ll be remembered for – pardon AJ.

      Sorry its called three strikes because you are given 3 TIMES AS A FELON TO FIX UP YOUR F-Ing live 3times if you can’t fix yourself by then then you should be locked up for your safety and the safety of the public regardless of the crime 3 times means you havent figured it out the first 2 times How many chances do you think they should get If you werent related to a felon im sure your views would be different but your biased and so be it I for one don’t like to see people locked up but at what point is enough enough Trumped up charges against her husband i don’t think so shes lucky she didn’t go with him with all that stolen property on her property and with all the ex felons working there Stop blameing others for your lived ones corruption

    I’m no badass criminal lover. Having said that I have actually been a victim of “a@#$#” cops and a justice system that is often times worse than most criminals on death row. I was very skeptical about Pitbulls and Paroles, but after the first episode I was hooked. I’m actually quite ashamed to allow the word “Paroles” to even be an issue for me to watch the show. I also was predisposed to the pitbulls because of their bad rap. After watching this show i have grown to love this breed, to respect ex-convicts whether actually responsible for committing crimes or for those like myself who were falsely convicted due to lack of resources to hire a competent and scrupulous attorney. I have fallen in love with Tia and her entire family. I have incredible respect for her as the loyal wife, amazing mother, pioneering woman, and the person with the biggest andost enviable heart I have ever seen. Based on what kind of person Tia has shown to be, I’m absolutely certain that despite his past A.J. got a raw deal from the cops as well as that crooked DA. I pray he gets out sooner rather than later, and comes out with his head held up high, and rejoins Tia and the rest of his family to resume the wonderful thing they are doing for the dogs and the Paroles. Good luck A.J., Tia and all the other people that have been screwed by the bullies of our illustrious justice system. Definitely no offense intended to all the breeds of the good dogs with “bull” in their names.

    Yajaira makes a huge point. I trust Tia’s judgement so much, she is a woman who would never be deceived, especially by a man who opened up and tells her everything terrible that he has done, and changed by having this wonderful program. He has done nothing but work so hard and love his family, as anytime his name is brought up, the family is very sad by his absence. I feel their pain and I hope one day the justice system will be better and that the family is reunited again, as they deserve!

The outcome cant be good and the fact a officer got hit is why their magnifying everything out of proportion thats what av courts will do to someone they love handing time out like candy. If i got out the program would be called pitbulls and misdemeanors cause parollees sends off a excuse for cops tlo walk on and blow shit out of proportion

    You wanna talk about some bullshit, I did a year in a closed security prison for 20mg of oxycontin. I had 0 felonies when I caught the charge, and had no other charges besides a misdemeanor DUI. They didn’t like me for many years in my small town and gave me the max sentence possible. I am in no way comparing Aren’s plight to my own, he is doing serious time, I’m just pointing out the injustices the system perpetuates. They wanted me to snitch on a drug dealer and I told them to fuck themselves.

  • Blondie Barton on

    Tia I have watched your show from the beginning and the question if your husband is guilty or not is no longer important. He has served his time and should have been released already my hopes is he will be 2017. The three strikes law is one of the worst law ever passed I wish someone could get it on the ballot to remove it. This law sends people for minor things to prison for the rest of their life’s I don’t think this was how it was meant to be but with each new law people read it differently. My concern is when he is released from prison will Los Angeles allow him to transfer to Louisiana and will they accept him. I got into trouble once arrested once and sent to prison once. I’ve seen both sides I did my timer at Ca Inst for women and Rainbow fire camp which I paroled from. Once was enough for me never went back, an have no desire to do anything that would send me back. I was paroled to Los Angeles co and had one of the nicest parole officers around he allowed me to travel back & forth from Bakersfield to visit my girlfriend who was from there we met in prison and eventually allowed me to move there. Bakersfield did everything including trying to violate me on a made up violation to send me back but I stood strong won against the parole office and made them look pardon my language stupid and I did one year parole was released. The system isn’t there to help paroles in 98 % of the cases but do everything they can to send u back so please both of you be careful do as your told give them no reason or trust me he will go back. Many prayers to you and the family as well as your husband I will pray he receives one of the 2% of parole officers that do care about paroles. Continued success. I’m glad to see your back if I could afford it I would adopt one of your dogs I own my own home but finances will not allow me to pay for the trip here but if you ever want to give a dog a wonderful home and your coming this way I would love to have one.

I think that Tia and her husband A.J. attempts at doing good for the most misunderstood breed of dogs has not only helped the breed but it has also taken 100s of parolees who would have otherwise probably would have returned to a life of crime and go back to jail if it wasn’t for their program. Her program has these parolees being tax paying citizens and contributing to society. She deserves to have her husband TJ with her throughout this.

    So according to you, Aaron is some sociopath who is beyond redemption and must stay in prison for the rest of his life? His crimes were not dangerous or violent in nature, and clearly this last arrest was unfounded and bogus or to put it in layman term AJ was the product of a rat who isn’t man enough to take responsibility for his own actions. He’s not a drug addict. All unfounded. I hope if your kids, grandkids… ever get into trouble, you remember what you just said about AJ. After all no body is redeemable and there is no such thing as injustice.

I really don’t think that is right as for the sexy pit’s if you are seen with a Pitt you are judged as some sort of a criminal its not right if the dog doesn’ have a mussel on you will be fined up to $10000 .You are not allowed to breed them its like the dogs are somewhat on death row .I do believe in fixing your pets for animal control but to put one breed on death row is bs.I look at it this way if it is against the law to put any species on the endangered like list why are they trying to do that with the Pitt Its not Fair what they do with the paroles or the Pitt .If there is a way I can help fight the fight let me know

  • Joseph Allman on

    I’m not here to be the one to pass judgement on whether Aren did or didn’t re-offend. I understand Tia’s plight as she obviously cares about this man, and I’m sure wants to believe what he has said about not being guilty of these crimes. If you really forced my hand, I would probably lean toward him being guilty. However, even if he’s innocent to a certain extent, he unfortunately made very poor choices. Some of which seem lacking of any common sense. If you WERE a violent offender, which Aren was, and out on probation, you cannot put yourself in or around any situation or any people that could potentially cause you problems that might put you back in prison. I.E. being around a bunch of ex-convicts, all of whom are on probation . And, allowing these people to live on your property. Unfortunately, criminals commit crimes. And, ex-convicts on parole are going to draw attention. Hell, every one of them has a probation officer required to check up on them. Using this as a point to reinforce why you wouldn’t have committed the crimes is assinine. Allowing criminals to live with you while your still on probation was assinine. Whether Aren commited the crimes he’s accused of, or it was another parolee…who knows? Like I said, it probably was Aren. But, either way he should not have been in the living situation he was in…at least until his probationary period is over with. And, truthfully, I’m not gonna rake him across the coals for re-offending. We are all human. We all make mistakes. Yes, these were non-violent crimes. Unfortunately, and he should have known this, the system leans harder on you the second or third time around. It truly is what it is. And I’m not naive, I KNOW crops are crooked too. I just don’t see why in this situation they would want to, “frame” Aren…by supposedly planting heroin in his toolbox. They had him on other charges..i.e. the stolen merchandise. They didn’t need to “plant” heroin on him to send him back to jail. Obviously the police had been conducting an investigation and some type of surveillance, and he got caught up in it. I don’t like the system most of the time either, but if you do the crime..you just unfortunately have to do the time. At this point he’s been back in around 10 years..right. I really don’t see anything changing at this point. Finish it out with good behaviour and maybe get out a few years earlier. I wish you all good luck. And I wasn’t trying to be offensive or incendiary. I just try to say it the way I see it.
