Volume 28, No. 53 Tuesday, March 19, 2013


Quick Justice: It could be called quick justice. Two burglars caught in the act early last week have already entered guilty pleas and were sentenced Friday to prison by 75thDistrict Judge Mark Morefield. Jane Hemmick, 54, and Chistopher Loften, 32, were captured by Liberty police last Monday after tips from observant citizens. Friday, Jane Hemmick pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years in prison with a chance for probation after serving 90 days. Christopher Loften also pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced to three years in prison.


Assault Plea: 25-year-old Justin Sye Garrett has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault causing bodily injury in the 75thDistrict Court. KSHN reported a Liberty County jury failed to reach consensus in a trial late last month. At that time, Judge Morefield declared a hung jury, and the case was set to go to trial again later this month. Then, on March 8, Justin Garrett pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six months in a state boot camp with 10 years more probation. The charge stems from a two-vehicle wreck on December 27, 2010, that left a woman with a traumatic brain injury. Evidence showed Garrett’s blood-alcohol level was .11 – that’s above the legal limit of .08.


Jubilee 5k: One new event at this year’s Liberty Jubilee is the Jubilee 5k Fun Run. It starts this Saturday morning at 8 from the corner of Main and Sam Houston and continues through various Liberty neighborhoods. Cost is $20 per runner. It benefits the Liberty High School Class of 2016. You can enter at City Hall, Clawson’s Printing or Shivers Enterprises.


Essay Winners: Three Liberty County students have been honored by the Libertad Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, as part of the organization’s American History and Christopher Columbus essay contests. Those students are Faith Calico from Liberty High School, Scarleth Lopez of Woodrow Wilson Junior High in Dayton and Dillan Ferguson from Devers Elementary. Ferguson also won the state title in his division.
