Arrests On Domestic Violence Charges

WTAW 1620 94.5 Arrest Made Featured

A 60 year old College Station man is charged with violating a protection order while in the Brazos County jail awaiting a trip to prison for a prior conviction of violating protection orders against the same person. The arrest report from College Station police says the victim last month gave officers two threatening letters from her ex-boyfriend in violation of a lifetime protection order. In February, Robert Rankin and the district attorney’s office reached a plea agreement where Rankin received a four year prison sentence after he admitted to protection order violations in 2021. Prosecutors dismissed two violations that took place in 2022.
