Panhandle– On Monday, June 15, 2015, one plea took place in Carson County, Texas.

Luke Inman, the District Attorney for the 100th Judicial District, prosecuted the case for the State of Texas with the Honorable Judge Bryan Poff presiding by assignment.

Salenia Joel Hunter pleaded not true to allegations listed in the State’s Motion to Revoke and was sentenced to four years in the Institution Division of TDCJ for the second degree felony offense of possession of marijuana.

On July 23, 2014, Hunter, 43, from Kansas City, Mo., pleaded true to probation violations and was finally convicted of the offense that occurred on June 5, 2006, in Carson County.

The State filed its first motion to adjudicate on April 4, 2014. In July, Hunter was rolled over to straight probation for a period of ten years. The State filed a second motion to revoke in September of 2014, just months after she was originally convicted for the offense, alleging three violations of probation.

During the contested hearing, Carol Holcomb, the assistant director of the 100th Judicial District Community Supervision and Corrections Department testified how poorly Hunter complied with the terms of community supervision after she had been given multiple chances.

After the testimony was presented by the State and the defense, Poff found all three violations true and sentenced Hunter to four years.
Hunter is also required to pay $447 in court costs to Carson County, $1,214.48 restitution, and a $4,000 fine.
