Life Sentence: A North Liberty County man was sentenced to life in prison Friday. 28-year-old Melvin Adalberto Morales-Rivas was convicted of murdering his neighbor back in June 2016. Jurors deliberated for just under 3 hours before finding Morales–Rivas guilty of killing 45-year-old Vicente Rodriguez, allegedly due to a dispute over a weed eater. Liberty County DA Logan Pickett did not ask jurors for a particular sentence, leaving that decision entirely to the jury’s discretion. Jurors were informed Morales–Rivas had been previously deported and then reentered the United States illegally. There is an immigration detainer in effect, and Melvin Morales–Rivas is to be deported again once he has served his life sentence for murder. He will be eligible for parole consideration once he has served 30 years of his sentence, minus the two years he was jailed awaiting trial.

Constable Joslin Trial: After deliberating for several hours last Wednesday, a jury in the Jefferson County Court at Law announced they were deadlocked on a perjury charge against Liberty County Precinct #6 Constable John Joslin. The perjury trial ended with a hung jury, but prosecutors say they will try Constable Joslin again on that charge. Joslin was indicted on the misdemeanor perjury charge by a Jefferson County Grand Jury in January of 2016. Additionally, there were two allegations of second degree felony tampering with governmental records. Court records show that those felonies against Constable John Joslin were dismissed by 253rd District Judge Chap Cain on April 21, 2017. He has continued to serve as constable.
