Four individuals pleaded guilty and one man was given a more than five-year sentence for probation violations in the 266th Judicial District Court this week.
Desmond Decharles Jones pleaded guilty to stealing one of more than a dozen projectors that were taken from Tarleton State University over a period of about a year, beginning in 2008.
