- The mistress of convicted murderer, Jason Rohde, has claimed that the wife-killer is innocent
- Jolene Alterskye was romantically involved with Rohde at the time of his wife’s murder and claims that the arresting officers acted unlawfully
- Alterskye further claims that Rohde’s arrest was a conspiracy to bring him down
Jason Rohde has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder of his wife, but his mistress has recently said that he is innocent.
Rohde has been convicted for the murder of his wife, which was staged to appear as a suicide.
Rohde’s mistress, 37-year-old Jolene Alterskye, recently alleged to the murderer’s innocence via text message.
“The State and the judge are the same team … If the State acted unlawfully in illegally searching properties and bribing state witnesses, what else did they fabricate in order to get their Xmas bonus?” Alterskye stated in the message.
According to IOL, Alterskye went on to say that the entire case “was an attempt by the State to create a crime which never happened.”
Briefly.co.za gathered that this angry text message is not the first time that Rohde’s mistress lashed out at the law enforcement that helped convict the murderer.
After Rohde was sentenced, Alterskye hit out against a Facebook post made by SAPS, which congratulated the team that were involved in the Rohde case.
Alterskye commented, referring the confiscating of her phone and computer:
“These two ‘officers’ did nothing but lie, and acted unlawfully, raiding my home and intimidating my child without a legal search warrant. After months of broken promises I received my ‘illegally’ confiscated goods through whiskey pay-offs, as that is the only language they understand. These are not people we should respect nor promote so hopefully they do not get a higher rank. I do hope these detectives are not the norm and that there are good cops out there.”
Rohde’s mistress subsequently deleted her response.
