Eagle Ford: Cole case could be headed to trial in district court
Jury selection in the trial of 51-year-old Steven Edward Cole remains set for March 25, following a March 5 docket call before 81st Judicial District Judge Donna Rayes in Wilson County District Court.
Cole is charged with five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a public servant for his alleged role in a Jan. 15, 2011, shootout with Wilson County law-enforcement personnel.
The docket also was called for other defendants, including:
•Jordan Lewis, 29, charged with aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated kidnapping, escape, evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in connection with an April 26, 2012, escape from the Wilson County Jail. Lewis now is being represented by attorney Greg Wilson and jury selection ahead of his trial is set for March 25.
•Former La Vernia Junior High School Principal Maria Elena Wildenstein, 48, charged with misapplication by a fiduciary. She is set to return to court April 2 for a pretrial hearing, with docket call set for April 30 ahead of jury selection May 13.
The Wilson County grand jury met March 8 and returned indictments on 23 suspects. Among them were 29-year-old Dallas Warren Crisp and 19-year-old Roxie Jean Talarico, both of Pleasanton. The pair allegedly were involved in a Jan. 15 pursuit with Floresville police following a reported burglary. Each is charged with burglary of a habitation, while Crisp also is charged with evading arrest or detention in a motor vehicle.
Talarico has been in custody since her arrest, while Crisp fled after being treated in a San Antonio hospital. Officials confirmed that he was captured in February in La Salle County, before being transported to the Wilson County Jail. Crisp and Talarico each are being held on $30,000 bond.
