Judge Timothy Boswell sentenced Kelvin Thomas McCain to two 35-year sentences in two cases involving delivery of a controlled substance, each a first-degree felony.

Darwin Kimmel received 12 years for aggravated sexual assault of a child, for acts that occurred with a minor in 2006. The case was successfully investigated by Chuck Houghton of the Mineola Police Department.

On Sept. 8th, Christopher Gipson received a 13-year sentence for possession of a controlled substance - cocaine - with intent to deliver. Sgt. Terry Bevill of the Wood County Sheriff's Office worked the case leading to Gipson's plea.
