Man gets deferred adjudication in horse theft

Posted on May 25th, 2011 No Comments

A Royse City man recently plead guilty to stealing horses in Hunt County in 2009.  With the guilty plea, indictments against two others suspected of stealing the horses were dropped.

In court in April, the man plead guilty to one count of theft of livestock.  Under a plea deal arrangement, the man avoided the maximum sentence of two years in jail and instead was sentenced to five years of deferred adjudication probation.  In addition, the arrangement included a $1,000 fine and 100 hours of community service.

If the man completes the five years of deferred adjudication, pays the fine, and completes the community service, he will be able to file a petition for non-disclosure and have the crime removed from his record.

To discuss the steps to take to file a petition for non-disclosure with an experienced attorney, contact the Dallas non-disclosure lawyers of The Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at 214-651-1121 today.
