Childress – On Monday, Oct. 28, 2013, three pleas took place which resulted all in convictions.
Luke Inman, the District Attorney for the 100th Judicial District, assisted by Greg Buckley, prosecuted the cases for the State of Texas with the Honorable Judge Stuart Messer presiding.
A total of $6,000 in fines was assessed as a result of the pleas that took place on Oct. 28. In addition to the fines, the defendants were required to pay a total of $1,142 in court costs and $246.78 in restitution.
1. Rose Mary Tagle, a 30-year-old resident of Childress, pleaded true to allegations listed in the State’s Motion to Adjudicate and was convicted and sentenced to 14 months in the State Jail Division of the TDCJ.
On Jan. 7, 2013, Tagle originally pleaded guilty to the state jail felony offense of forgery that occurred on Nov. 17, 2011, in Childress County.
The State filed the motion to adjudicate on Sept. 25, 2013, alleging six violations of community supervision.
Tagle pleaded true to the violations contained in the State’s motion and was sentenced to 14 months. Tagle is also required to pay $385.50 in court costs to Childress County, $106.78 restitution, and a $1,500 fine.
2. Crystal Beatrice Gideon, a 36-year-old resident of Pampa, pleaded true to allegations listed in the State’s Motion to Revoke and was convicted and sentenced to 18 months in the State Jail Division of the TDCJ.
On Dec. 13, 2011, Gideon originally pleaded guilty to the state jail felony offense of driving while intoxicated with a child passenger that occurred on July 21, 2011, in Childress County.
The State filed the motion to revoke on Aug. 30, 2013, alleging five violations of community supervision.
“Our probation department does an excellent job in giving probationers multiple chances for rehabilitation when it is needed or requested,” said Inman. “This probationer could not even complete a whole month of the rehabilitation facility of her own choosing. She did not want to help herself and that’s why she will be spending the next year-and-a-half in the penitentiary.”
