POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - One of two suspects in a 2015 home invasion robbery in Corrigan has accepted a plea bargain deal of seven years of deferred adjudication.
Nicole Washington, a prosecutor with the Polk County District Attorney's Office, said that Davarious Keith Bradford, 19, of Corrigan, pleaded guilty to an aggravated robbery charge on Jan. 23.
Washington said she spoke to the victim in the case, Bradford's uncle, and he was OK with the recommended punishment.
"We always consider the victim's wishes, and we thought it was appropriate, so that's how we proceeded," Washington said.
In a previous East Texas News story, Corrigan Police Chief Darrell Gibson said his department received a 911 call about an aggravated robbery at a home in the 500 block of Buckshop Lane at about 3:20 a.m. on Sept. 12, 2015. The victim told police that he was sleeping when two men kicked in his door.
Gibson said Bradford held the alleged victim at gunpoint, and they left the home with several items. The police chief wouldn't say what the items were.
After the victim went to the Corrigan Police Department to make a statement, he said he knew the two men and helped identify them.
The two suspects were arrested Sunday, and the gun was recovered later that day, Gibson said. Bradford and Corbin Ray Vestal, 18, of Conroe, were both charged with aggravated robbery.
Vestal has a hearing scheduled for March 7.
