GROVETON, Texas (KTRE) - A Trinity man has accepted a four-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to two burglaries.

According to the Trinity County District Attorney's Office, Richard "Ricki" Galloway was scheduled to begin trial for the crime on Nov. 8. Galloway was arrested on Oct. 26 on a warrant for a second burglary. He had been out on bond for a Feb. 2010 burglary when he decided to act as a "lookout" for the second burglary, according to a press release.

Pct. 1 Constable Woody Wallace arrested Galloway's accomplice, Phillip Asbury, 20, of Trinity, according to the press release. Asbury is in the Trinity County Jail on a $80,000 bond.

Galloway accepted the plea bargain on Nov. 1.

The conviction is the result of a cooperative effort between Wallace's office and the district attorney's office.
