New Trouble For Two Men Given Deferred Adjudication In Brazos County District Court Criminal Cases

Two Brazos County district court criminal cases where local men were originally sentenced to a form of probation called deferred adjudication are in trouble again.

In one case, the district attorney’s office wants the trial judge to impose punishment to a College Station man who admitted to threatening to kill the mother of their child with a motor vehicle three years ago. That’s after 34 year old Tanzy Deshotel III was arrested two weeks ago on a charge of repeatedly slapping the child’s face. According to the Bryan police arrest report, the eight year old child reported to school with bruises on both sides of his face. Deshotel told investigators the child was struck by a soccer ball. The child told investigators he was supposed to say he was hit by a basketball if his mother asked. Deshotel is out of jail after posting an $8,000 dollar bond on the new charge.

A Hearne man arrested almost nine years ago for a hit and run crash in Bryan that injured two people was sentenced in Brazos County district court last week to three years in prison. That’s after 35 year old Steven Crump Jr. spent five years on deferred adjudication. Prosecutors say Crump failed…among other things…to submit to drug and alcohol testing 16 times between October 2015 and May 2016 and not making any payments towards $3,600 dollars in restitution. Crump was arrested following a June 2010 collision of two pickup trucks. At the time, Crump had two suspensions on his drivers license. And he told Bryan police he had been drinking. The judge set Crump’s appeal bond on the new punishment at $15,000 dollars.
