NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches man pleaded guilty Thursday to two separate felony crimes, accepting a six-month jail sentence and probation.
Hunter Dewayne Harkey, 18, pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated with a child passenger, a November 2010 incident, and engaging in organized crime, in a July incident.
The six-month jail sentence stems from him driving drunk with an 13-year-old passenger. A Nacogdoches Police officer arrested Harkey after catching Harkey cross the double yellow line more than once. The officer stopped Harkey on Hackberry Street.
The eight-year probation sentence stems from Harkey being a passenger in a vehicle when someone hit a man in the head with an AK-47 in what authorities believe was a gang-related assault. Harkey was one of four arrested in the case.
A Mesquite man accepted a nine-month state jail sentence for his part in the May robbery of a man selling hats out of the trunk of his car.
According to previous reports, Tyundra Ammon Morris, 23, and two other men approached the victim on the 200 block of Stone Street in Nacogdoches and acted like they were going to buy a hat. Two of the men pulled out shotguns and took all the hats and ran away.
One of the suspects fired his shotgun at the victim, striking the car. The suspects then fled the scene in a vehicle down the street.
John Elvin Hicks Jr., 38, of Nacogdoches, pleaded guilty to delivery of a controlled substance, stemming from an August 2010 arrest. Hicks was one of 23 arrested by Constable Pct. 4 Jason Bridges' office following an undercover investigation.
A sentencing for Hicks will be determined on February 9.
