Clarendon – On Tuesday, Dec. 20, one plea took place in the 100th Judicial District Court in Donley County.

Luke Inman, the District Attorney for the 100th Judicial District, along with Assistant District Attorney Harley Caudle, prosecuted the cases for the State of Texas, with the Honorable Judge Stuart Messer presiding.

Brandie Chambless, 52, from Clarendon, was sentenced to five years in prison for the third degree felony offense of possession of a controlled substance in penalty group one, methamphetamine.
Chambless was arrested on Oct. 1, 2019 by Donley County Sheriff’s Deputy Jakey Longan. Chambless was originally placed on two years probation on Oct. 29, 2021.

The State filed a motion asking the Court to revoke Chambless’ probation on June 15, alleging three violations of community supervision. Chambless pleaded true to all violations which included the commission of a new offense of leaving the rehabilitation facility.

“When Defendants like this one request help, and we allow them to go to rehab, it’s in their best interest to complete the program,” said Inman. “Court-ordered rehabilitation only works when these defendants are committed to getting off substances to successfully complete probation.”

Chambless was also ordered to pay the remaining $500 fine, $180 restitution and $458 in court costs.
