That'll Get You 180

The Defendant who made a run for it was sentenced this morning. As he had to, the judge ordered 6 years in the pen but probated the sentence. He made the probationary period as long as he could (10 years) and also assessed 180 days in jail as a condition of probation. The Defendant just earned the first "Bum Steer" award of 2009 by Texas Monthly. And on the probation. The guy had no criminal history despite being in his 40 and the evidence connecting him to the dope wasn't that strong. The jury deliberated on his guilt for over three hours.

With his credit for time served he will be out in a week.
Good job guys...doper returns to the streets after a guilty verdict.
The last time something this stupid happened was the Sharon Green Murder conviction that got her Probation!
Maybe the DA's office should hire a consultant.
I'm just saying.....

I hope this guy gets his life turned around. Drug addiction is terrible not only for him but for our community as well.

10:40 AM--#1, he doesn't get credit for time served when he gets 180 days as a term of probation, per the Code of Criminal Procedure. #2, even when that's over, he'll be in custody unless he makes some hefty bonds on the 2 felonies and 2 misdemeanors he's being charged with in Tarrant County.

Again, yet ANOTHER case of someone commenting on this situation who knows NOTHING about the law or the circumstances. Good grief.

Barry,

Did you mention you were going to share with us the plea this fellow turned down?

This Guy has other charges pending for running doesn't he ? How will that affect his probation? Wouldn't it be a violation of his probation? Since there hasn't been a hearing on the other charges, evading, assault, etc.

No matter what the honest people get the shaft said...

Ok now that everyone has had their laughs lets look at the economics. There is no good way to know what has been spent on this "poor soul" up to this point but based on the document located at this link http://www.co.wise.tx.us/Contracts/CIVIGENICS.pdf it is worth $34 per day to house someone in the "Wise County Hilton" so if he spends his 180 days with us we (the taxpayers) will pay $6,120 because this moron decided to run forest run....

To 2:47 PM--Good questions. First of all, the new offenses aren't violations of his probation, because they occurred before he was sentenced, and it is only a violation of probation to commit an offense AFTER you are placed on probation. And yes, he has 4 other offenses now pending (2 felony and 2 misdemeanor), but they are being filed in Tarrant County, because that's where he ended up and where some of them were committed (some could have been filed in either county). So, he has to serve 180 days as a term of probation (and he doesn't get credit for time served as I explained above in my 11:08 AM post, but he also has to make some pretty large bonds on those new offenses, as well, before he can get released out of jail). And by the way, if he is appealing the case in Wise County, he'll have to make another hefty bond to be released pending his appeal.
