Diboll burglar pleads guilty

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man pleaded guilty Friday to his part in a Diboll burglary spree and will be going to prison for at least three months.

Kevin Ray Cook, 18, pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree aggravated assault, second-degree aggravated assault and burglary of habitation and state-jail felony burglary of building.

Judge Gerald Goodwin approved sentences of 10 years in prison for three counts, 10 years probation for another and two years in state jail on another. However, shock probation will be considered after 90 days.

Shock probation is a method judges use to rehabilitate convicted felons by putting them in jail then "shocking" them out in hopes they learned their lesson.

Diboll Police arrested Cook in February after he was caught with two others burglarizing vehicles and houses on Booker Street.

Cook tried to burglarize the home of a 96-year-old man and his wife, but the man was able to keep him from getting in the house, according to police. A neighbor eventually confronted Cook, despite Cook trying to stab him with a screwdriver, Williams said.
