Luke Inman, the District Attorney for the 100th Judicial District, prosecuted the case for the State of Texas with the Honorable Judge Stuart Messer presiding.
David Dewayne Keelin was placed on probation for a period of six years for the first degree felony offense of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Keelin pleaded guilty and was placed on deferred adjudication for the offense.
Keelin, was arrested in Hall County for the offense that took place July 3, 2011. The arrest took place after a search warrant was executed at Keelin’s residence after a narcotics investigation was conducted by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Chris Tiedemann executed a search warrant affidavit for narcotics at Keelin’s house after a confidential informant made an undercover purchase of cocaine from Keelin, according to Inman.
Keelin was later indicted by a Hall County Grand Jury on April 3, 2012.
Pursuant to the plea agreement, Keelin is required to pay a $1,000 fine to Hall County, $376 in court costs, $140 in restitution, and complete 400 hours of community service. If Keelin violates probation, he could face up to 99 years or life in TDCJ.
