LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - A Houston man who pleaded guilty to striking another man with a crowbar during a fight at a Hudson trailer park last October is back in court.

Joshua Rodney Jacks accepted a 10-year probation sentence for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.  He was on the verge of getting that probation revoked and going to jail when Visiting Judge Gerald Goodwin decided to enhance his probation conditions instead.

According to a previous report, Officer Wesley McNeely responded to a report at 10:15 p.m. Sunday of a stabbing at America's Mobile Home trailer park. Upon arrival, McNeeley said two men were suffering injuries: one, Jacks, with a cut in the arm and another with a head injury from a crowbar.

Casper said an investigation revealed Jacks suffered a cut from the other man trying to defend himself.

In addition to the regular terms of his probation, Jacks will now have to report weekly until he obtains employment, attend a judicial administrative hearing and pay his attorney fees.
