James Robert Stark of Jewett was sentenced November 4th by District Judge Deborah Oakes Evans after his lawyer and Leon District Attorney Hope Knight reached a plea bargain in the case.

Stark was sentenced to 4 years in TDCJ after he plead guilty to a charge of Assault / Family Violence / Impeding Breath with a Previous Conviction. As part of the plea bargain, this charge can be used as punishment evidence in any future proceedings against Stark.

Stark has been held in the Leon County Jail since this last Assault charge was filed against him after Judge Evans granted Knight's request that Stark's bond be revoked.
