LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A 61-year-old Lufkin woman accepted a plea bargain deal of two years of deferred adjudication Tuesday for using a cane to injure a senior citizen in September of 2015.

Devi Elizabeth Pike appeared in an Angelina County judicial district court room for a plea bargain hearing Tuesday. As part of the plea bargain deal, Pike pleaded “no contest” to a Class A misdemeanor assault charge.

Pike agreed to a plea bargain deal of two years of deferred adjudication. While she is on deferred adjudication, she will be subject to conditions similar to what a person on probation would face. She was also ordered to pay a $200 fine and do 400 hours of community service.

When Pike was arrested in September of 2015, she was originally charged with third-degree felony injury to the elderly. Capt. Alton Lenderman with the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office said that on Sept. 18, 2015, deputies went to Kenner Street and talked to a senior citizen that said that her grandson was living next door with Pike.

The victim told the deputies that she had been letting Pike store some of her property at her house. She said that she called Pike several times in an effort to get her to come get her things, and when she didn’t, she threw Pike’s things in her yard.

Then when Pike entered the victim’s home, the senior citizen tried to hit her with her cane. At that point, Pike took the cane away from her and hit her with it, causing injuries to her left hand and arm, Lenderman said.
