Three men pleaded guilty Tuesday in the 266th Judicial District Court, which led to probation for two and time in a state jail for the third.
Jose Luis Olvera, 36, pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily injury/family violence, a third-degree felony.
Assistant District Attorney Sterling Harmon said the state recommended Olvera be sentenced to 10 years confinement, probated for five years. As a part of the agreement, Olvera was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, court courts and perform 300 hours of community service. He was also barred from having contact with the victim.
"If you ever touch her again, you are going to the penitentiary," District Judge Donald Jones said after accepting the sentencing recommendation.
Jorge Lorta, 19, was sentenced to six years deferred adjudication probation after pleading guilty to possessing one - four grams of MDMA, also known as ecstasy. Lorta was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine, lab fees and court costs and perform 300 hours of community service.
Jones told Lorta that if he lived out the terms of his probation, the charges against him would be dismissed at the end of the six year period, but if he violated any of the conditions of the probation, he could be sentenced to up to 10 years behind bars.
Marc Adam Cruz, 32, appeared to face charges in two cases, one for possession of methamphetamine, a state jail felony, and another for burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault, a second-degree felony.
In exchange for his guilty plea, the burglary case against Cruz was dismissed and he was sentenced to 14 months in a state jail facility.
