MMD: A bill has been filed in Austin to allow the creation of a Municipal Management District to be located in North Liberty County. The only other taxing entity to be affected by the MMD, the city of Plum Grove. Their city council voted earlier this week to approve a similar resolution in support of the Municipal Management District. Liberty County Judge Jay Knight said the MMD has been somewhat controversial, mostly because there has never been one in Liberty County before. Final approval must come from the state.
Sentencing: On Wednesday, a jury in Judge Chap Cain’s 253rd District Court sentenced 24-year-old Roberto Ismael Alvarado of Cleveland to 65 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for the murder of an Exxon Convenience Store clerk. Alvarado was one of the men charged in the shooting death of Conbino “Bino” Crasto during a robbery in December 2015. Alvarado was said to be the getaway car driver.
Guilty: 42-year-old David Earl Mitchell Jr has been found guilty of murder by a jury in the 75th District Court of Judge Mark Morefield. That verdict is related to the May 2014 shooting death of Spencer Allen Sharp on C.R. 175 near Raywood. At the time of that shooting, Mitchell was claiming self-defense. However, after deliberating Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning, a jury found David Mitchell Jr guilty of murder.
Shooting: A North Liberty County man, 45-year-old Melvin Allen Penton was shot yesterday morning at his home on CR 2005. According to Liberty County Sheriff’s Investigator Josh Cummins, Penton was reportedly shot in the upper portion of his shoulder. He went to his neighbor’s house who then called 911 around 7:20 a.m. yesterday. Sheriff’s deputies responded, and a LifeFlight air ambulance transported Melvin Penton to a Houston hospital with what were thought to be non life-threatening injuries. Sgt. Cummins said investigators have detained a person of interest in the shooting. Investigators say there are a number of conflicting statements, an investigation is under way, and at last report, no charges have been filed.
Obituaries: Glendon Dawkins “Bubba” Toler Jr., 72 of Cleveland. Service is today at 2 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Cleveland (PSFH).
