Erika Perdue, the 41-year-old University Park woman indicted in May for collecting and sharing child pornography, has been kicked out of a rehab facility for attempting suicide, court records show. Last week, U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul D. Stickney ordered that Perdue be detained until trial, deeming her a flight risk and a danger to the community.

Perdue was indicted on May 1st for four counts of transporting, shipping, receipt, and possession of child pornography. An affidavit by FBI Agent Deborah Michaels stated that when federal agents searched Perdue's $1.3 million home on April 10th, she admitted to trading child pornography daily. (Be warned: the indictment and affidavit both include descriptions of the files found in Perdue's possession and are very disturbing.)

Perdue was arrested on April 10,then released two days later to attend the Sante Center for Healing, a residential treatment center in Argyle. The conditions of her pretrial release mandated that she undergo sex offender-specific treatment.

On June 13, Perdue's probation officer reported that she was sent to United Behavioral Health Hospital in Denton the day before, after she told Sante staff that she was "once again having suicidal thoughts," the report shows.

"The clinical director, clinical psychologist, and the defendant's psychiatrist are in agreement that the defendant's behavior indicates she continues to be a risk to herself and others at the facility," the report states. The probation officer requested that Perdue be found in violation of her probation and the conditions of her pretrial release be revoked.

Judge Stickney agreed, ruling on June 27 that there is "no condition or combination of conditions of release which could be set which would reasonably assure Ms. Perdue's appearance at future court hearings and protect the safety of the community."

Perdue isn't listed as being in custody yet, meaning that she's likely still in the hospital. Her trial is set for September 10.

What! she looks hot in that krump video showing off her ass thinking it's a trend  girlfriend! That ass needs to get bleached, it is dark and nasty! come on !  No socialite here just a dumb broad that does not even know about primping her private parts, bet she SMELLS like old CHEESE. She wears tons of 1980"s makeup and her hairstyles to match. Nowhere near DALLAS standards for a socialite. she looks like trailer trash from Garland . I have not heard about this much scandal since the 1970's with the Collin Davis murder trial, not justifying this trial, but compared to what ERIKA SUSAN PERDUE has done to hundreds if not more children she needs to be put away forever. I hope she gets punished by mandatory listening to happy children's voices 24/7 in her cell it will remind her of all the reasons she is there instead of babies or children crying because they are being abused she will not get her pleasure instead she will shrivel up like a witch because she can not stand the sound of a happy and safe child. Not feeling sorry for ERIKA at all but I think she was so damaged as a child herself, that or just greedy for money, If indeed she was abused herself  than you would think that she would not participate in such an atrocity towards children. No I'm sure of it I hate her she is the Devils Daughter.

You would probably not even be invited in their home unless you were a member of the Dallas Country Club and come from an "old money" family.  Which works just fine for me, because I would be too embarassed to say I ever knew these people.

What we need here is a small cell with a sturdy hook in the ceiling and a convenient rope. Let her do it. Save the taxpayers a little money.

I'll make sure to lock my doors and roll up my windows next time I drive through the Park Cities.   Obviously a jungle of criminality.

She will never go to prison for her awful, sick habits.The prevailing attitude toward female sex offenders, is that the poor dears just need help.My personal opinion is that this woman is a monstrosity.  Erika does not need to be let off the hook. I frequently travel through her neighborhood, as my mom lives there and I have my toddler daughter with me. I no longer feel we are safe in the Park Cities.

This obviously very sick woman can't consider - and then discuss - suicide at a psychiatric hospital? Why, then, is it open? All persons consider suicide at some time in their lives. Most brush off such thoughts, but some need help - from professionals - to overcome the urges.

Pre-trial, they're almost always allowed to go to rehab if they can afford it.As a prominent members of Dallas's Republican socialite community, her family could afford it.

How many male sex offenders get to go to rehab before trial? Is this normal?

I don't know, they just may make an example out of her. The general buzz from the public seems to be that her big bucks will get her off....but I think that is even yet another reason that they will not just let her walk on this deal.  This woman is sicker than you know.

No, most do not live in Highland Park and wealthy.Her Defense in case will be insanity,addiction or some mental problem.You know all rich folk are crazy when they commit crimes.
