Those pleading guilty and accepting punishment include:

Charges of misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana were set aside as part of the plea agreement.

Grand Jury Indictments
(Note: An indictment is not an indication of guilt, but rather a citizen jury’s verdict that a prosecutor has enough evidence against a person to proceed with felony charges.)
Timothy Jerome Baines II, 40, of 3411 Dalmation Dr. in Houston was indicted for assault public servant following a special Wharton County Grand Jury session.
He stands accused of pushing, striking and choking a sheriff’s deputy on July 19.
