Cody Wayne Ledbetter said goodbye to Canada when he retired from the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League after the 2001 season.
The welcome mat is apparently still out for Ledbetter north of the border.
...
Ledbetter, a star quarterback at Stephenville High School and New Mexico State University in the 1990s, has been on 10 year's probation since pleading guilty in 2005 to two counts of an improper relationship between an educator and a student. At the time, he was an assistant football coach at Alvarado High School.
The offenses occurred in 2003. He was indicted in 2004. As part of the probation terms, he surrendered his teaching certificate.
The Johnson County District Attorney's Office approved a motion to revoke probation on Jan. 4 of this year.
JCSO has been in pursuit of Ledbetter since. Once he is in custody a trial date can be set, a spokesman for District Attorney Dale Hanna said.
Holding the No. 1 spot on a Johnson County most wanted list is sometimes determined by luck of the draw, Alford said when Ledbetter made his first No. 1 appearance in March.
...
"[Ledbetter is] worthy of No. 1. He needs to be off the street."
If Ledbetter is in Canada, it's probably not to play football. He will turn 37 on July 9.

Had Ledbetter completed his 10-year probation with no hiccups, the offenses would have been expunged from his record.

The law appears to be closing in on Cody Wayne Ledbetter.
The question is: Which law?
Police in Ottawa, Canada, are pursuing Ledbetter in connection with a reported domestic dispute at a home where he was believed to have resided with a woman and small child.
The Johnson County Sheriff's Office is pursuing Ledbetter because he failed to report to his probation officer in January. He was placed on 10 years probation in 2005 after pleading guilty to two counts of improper relationship between an educator and student.
The offenses occurred in 2003, when Ledbetter was a teacher and coach at Alvarado High School. He was indicted in 2004. As part of the probation terms, he surrendered his teaching certificate. He had previously coached in El Paso.
The Johnson County District Attorney's Office approved a motion to revoke probation on Jan. 4.
JCSO has been in pursuit of Ledbetter since then. Once he is in custody a trial date can be set, a spokesman for District Attorney Dale Hanna said.
Monday morning, Ottawa police would say only that they are pursuing Ledbetter and that he has no warrants in Canada.
Of the dispute, the Ottawa Star newspaper reported, "Police showed up around 8 a.m. Saturday, but Ledbetter had already fled the scene, likely in the maroon 2003 Dodge 4-door pickup bearing Oklahoma plates that police are now looking for.
"Police have said nothing about the altercation that led them to the address, but rumors were swirling Sunday in the commons at Canterbury Square, the apartment complex where Ledbetter made his home while apparently hiding out from U.S. authorities. Other residents recognized Ledbetter's face from a photo circulated by police and published in Saturday's Ottawa Sun."
Ledbetter's name and picture have been in the No. 1 spot of Johnson County's Most Wanted poster since spring.
JCSO said in July that it had received a Crime Stoppers tip that Ledbetter could be in Ottawa.

Ledbetter was a standout quarterback at Stephenville High School and New Mexico State before playing in the Canadian Football League. He was the backup quarterback on the Grey Cup-winning Hamilton Tiger-Cats before retiring from the CFL in 2001.
On his Facebook page, he lists his home as Tulsa, Okla., and current city as Phoenix, Ariz.
According to the Ottawa newspaper, Ledbetter had been a regular customer at a popular pizzeria in Ottawa for about six months.
"He would show off his Grey Cup ring, which he won in 1999 as a member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, playing the role of backup quarterback," the newspaper reported. "He would chat up patrons about his favorite topic and his beloved Texas Longhorns. According to patrons, he worked various freelance construction jobs to pay the bills."
Ledbetter, born in 1973, is described as 6-1, 220 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.

LAS CRUCES - Cody Ledbetter was a New Mexico State Aggie great at the quarterback position.
Unfortunately, that's not what he's known for today, after a Texas judge ordered 12 years in prison for the former NMSU star and ex-CFL player for violating his probation.
"I really don't know much about his personal life, but Cody was a very, very good football player," said NMSU Senior Associate Athletics Director of Operations Herb Taylor.

Ledbetter, who starred as quarterback at Stephenville (Texas) High School, led Division I-A in total offense in 1995 for the Aggies. After graduating from NMSU, Ledbetter played professionally with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League.
Falling star
Unfortunately, trouble followed Ledbetter once his Aggie career was over.
In 2005, he pleaded guilty to having sex with a 16-year-old student in Alvarado, Texas, south of Fort Worth, while he was a high school assistant football coach. He was sentenced to 10 years' deferred-adjudication probation in a deal approved by his accuser and her mother, Johnson County authorities said.
He fled to Canada last year when it appeared his probation was about to be revoked for drinking alcohol and missing probation appointments.

Altogether, the Aggies gained 721 yards as a team that day, the best offensive game in NMSU history.

SHS grad pleads guilty to sex charge
www.empiretribune.com, 10 Aug 2005 [cached]
A recent plea bargain by former Stephenville High School student Cody Ledbetter, who pled guilty last month for having sex with one of his former students, raises questions about the effectiveness of a 2003 "improper relationship" law aimed at protecting 17-year-old students from having sex with their teachers.
According to a story Monday in the "Fort Worth Star Telegram," Ledbetter was arrested in 2004 by Johnson County authorities after a 16-year-old Alvarado High School student told school officials that she had a sexual relationship with the former special education teacher and assistant football coach.
Ledbetter, who graduated from Stephenville High School in 1990, pled guilty to two counts of having an improper relationship with the student and was sentenced to 10 years probation.Under the terms of his plea, Ledbetter cannot teach or coach while he is on probation, must get counseling, perform community service and was ordered to stay away from his former student.
What he doesn't have to do, however, is register as a sex offender, and that has some folks concerned about the safety of students who are increasingly being victimized by their educators.
Ledbetter was sentenced under the "Improper Relationship Between Educator and Student Law," which states that it is a second-degree felony for an employee of a public or private primary or secondary school to have sexual contact or sexual intercourse with a student.
