On Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020 one plea took place in the 100th Judicial District Courtroom at the Carson County Courthouse. Luke Inman, the District Attorney for the 100th Judicial District, along with Assistant District Attorney Harley Caudle, prosecuted the case for the State of Texas, with the Honorable Judge Stuart Messer presiding.
Jason Kimble Jaskowiak, 47, was sentenced for 30 years for the first degree felony offense of possession of a controlled substance in penalty group one, methamphetamine.
Jaskowiak, from Apache Junction, Ariz., was arrested in Carson County by DPS Trooper Danny Nunez on July 3, 2019. Jaskowiak pleaded guilty to an information filed by the State on Aug. 6, 2019.
The State filed its motion to adjudicate on Aug. 29, 2019, alleging two violations of community supervision. Jaskowiak pleaded true to the violations.
"You cannot commit a new offense just weeks after being placed on felony probation and without expecting to spend some substantial time in the pen," said Inman. "This defendant blew his chance - which cost him 30 years of his life."
Pursuant to the plea agreement, Jaskowiak is also required to pay a $9,500 fine to Carson County, $180 in restitution and $336 in court costs.
