HENNIE Houston police are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects in the robbery and shooting of a 31-year-old woman Sunday a few hours after she left a Montrose bar. Tracey Lynn Deal, 31, remains in fair condition at Ben Taub General Hospital after being shot several times in the face, chest and hands sometime after she left Chances, 1100 Westheimer, part of a complex of nightclubs primarily for lesbians, police said. Robbery apparently motivated the attack, said John Cannon, a Houston Police Department spokesman. There is no evidence that the incident took place because Deal was at a bar for lesbians, he said. "It's way too early to say it was anything other than a robbery," Cannon said. Today, investigators were expected to release a videotape of two men who used Deal's debit card at two local banks after she was abducted, shot and dumped in the 10,000 block of East Haven sometime after 2:30 a.m. Sunday, police said. Deal's family was also expected to post a $5,000 reward for the arrest and indictment of her attackers during today's briefing at police headquarters on Travis Street, authorities said. CrimeStoppers has also offered a $1,000 reward in the case. "These suspects are cold and bold/' said homicide Sgt. L.D. Foltz, a case investigator. "We need to get them off the streets. Someone will recognize the men on the videotape. Someone has seen her car. Call us, please." Deal called a friend about 2:30 a.m. Sunday and said she was at Chances, which was preparing to close, police said. About two hours later, Deal—who had been shot several times—managed to crawl more than 300 yards to awaken residents of an apartment complex at 10280 Windmill Lakes and ask for help. Police would not comment on where Deal lives. Her assailants allegedly forced Deal, driving her 1996 Honda Accord, to Whataburger on South Shepard about 4 a.m. They ordered $9 in food, police said. Less than an hour later. Deal was discovered by residents of the Windmill Lakes apartment complex. Her Honda Accord, described as a white 4-door with license plate VCB 71C and with a Green Bay Packers sticker on the windshield, is still missing, police said. Less than two hours later, police said, two suspects in the case were videotaped at two banks withdrawing money from an ATM using Deal's debit card. Some $400 was taken, authorities said. Investigators were expected to release segments of the videotape during the briefing today to help identify the two men. A third suspect in the robbery has used Deal's credit card, police said. Houston Police Department Homicide Division 713-308-3600 CrimeStoppers 713-222-TIPS UH wants to rehire prof it fired before lawsuit Jury verdict prompts school to revise sexual harassment policy in case that was first for Texas by GIP PLASTER What a difference a few weeks makes. A dental department chairman at the University of Texas Houston Health Science Center found guilty last month of sexually harassing a male professor who worked for him now faces termination after refusing the school's request for his resignation. The harassed employee, who was fired by the school after he complained about the harassment, has been offered his old job. Former dental employee Luis Mota, who is gay, was awarded $448,000 last month after a federal jury found that the he was sexually harassed by the Dr. Raul Caffesse, the acting dean of his department. The |ury also found that thc university failed to take prompt action to stop the harassment, then retaliated against Mota by firing him when he complained to school officials. The university asked Caffesse to resign last week and gave him the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to consider his decision. When the professor refused to resign, the university launched termination proceedings, according to David Bates, a university spokesman. If Caffesse fights the firing, the process could take as long as a year, but he could resign at any time. He is now on paid administrative leave. "He is not being dismissed simply because he was part of a lawsuit the university lost," Bates said. The proceedings are based on testimony from the trial that suggests Caffesse lied to his supervisors and concealed important information from them, school officials said. And the university has offered to rehire Mota. Joe /Ahmad, one of Mota's attorneys, said the job offer came in the form of a terse letter attached to a court motion. The letter, according to Ahmad, does not specify what type of job is being offered or whether it would be a comparable, tenure track position. Mota has not decided whether he will accept the offer, Ahmad said. He is currently employed at the University of Pittsburgh. Ahmad said that although Caffesse will likely be gone from the school, other university officials are responsible for the way the complaint was handled, and those officials remain at their jobs. Before he can make a decision about the offer, Ahmad said Mota will need to know if he will "report to the same villains in the case minus Caffesse." "This is a university that basically treated him as an outcast from the moment he complained. They took a rather disdainful view of someone complaining of samesex sexual harassment," Ahmad said. The job offer could be a cost saving measure for the university. If the offer is deemed by the judge to be in good faith, it could replace $330,000 in front pay that Mota won in the case. If Mota refuses an offer made in good faith, he will lose the money, Ahmad said. Ahmad expressed concern that nothing has changed at the university except the removal of Caffesse. But university officials say changes are being made. "The one thing that is underway that would make Mota's situation better is that the sexual harassment policy under which he made his complaint is under review and being revised," Bates said. University of Texas system officials were concerned with the school's timeliness in resolving the situation and with making sure a method of separating employees involved in complaints is established, he said. The university denies that it retaliated against Mota and is appealing that part of the judge's verdict. The school does not plan to appeal the verdict of sexual harassment. Mota is being offered the same position he left, Bates said. But some of the perks that previously accompanied his position are no longer available because they were funded by grants which have since expired. Bates would not elaborate. A lawyer for Caffesse told the Houston Chronicle that the verdict is not cause for the university to breach its contract with Caffesse. Caffesse testified during the trial that he had a sexual encounter with Mota, a native of Venezuela, at a June 1996 dental conference in Mexico, but Caffesse promised Mota then that it would not happen again. But in August, Caffesse booked the two into only one hotel room for another conference, forcing them to share. Caffesse asked Mota to join him in bed during that trip and during a later trip to Orlando. Caffesse testified that he was joking. Mota canceled future dental trips to avoid staying in the same room with him. Because Caffesse approved Mota's teaching contract, Mota said he felt pressured by the advances. mm BM Am** nm1 tin JAtuJ^CitoUtm* &mJmim&*Um*iJ* - .
