san jacinto county judge’s son indicted

A San Jacinto County grand jury indicted Mr. Faulkner for one count of Manslaughter which is a second degree felony.  The indictment arises out of a traffic crash that occurred in San Jacinto County on May 8, 2011.  The punishment range for this offense is anywhere from 2 years-probation to 20 years prison and a fine from 0-$10,000.  The indictment is currently in the possession of the clerk’s office.  The grand jury also found that Mr. Faulkner used his motor vehicle as a deadly weapon.  A deadly weapon finding can potentially affect parole eligibility dates for offenders sent to prison in that subjects with these findings after conviction will have to serve half of their prison time before being eligible for parole.  A deadly weapon finding at trial does not affect a jury’s ability to assess probation.  Bonding information is unavailable at this time.  The defense lawyer in the case has been notified of the indictment.  The Montgomery County prosecutors assigned to the case have declined to comment on the facts of the case.

In a related matter, a visiting misdemeanor judge also reviewed a probation revocation document on Mr. Faulkner’s misdemeanor DWI case.  A arrest order has been issued in that case.  If any civilians are aware of the location of Mr. Faulkner, please do not attempt to arrest him.  Contact the San Jacinto County District Attorney’s Office or the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office at 936.539.7800 and ask to speak to Investigator J. Stephenson.
