Jordan Robert Lewis, 31, will be 56 years old before he is eligible for parole from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Judge Stella Saxon of the 218th Judicial District Court sentenced Lewis in Wilson County District Court May 12 to two 50-year concurrent sentences for aggravated robbery and aggravated assault, in connection with his 2012 rampage that began with his escape from the Wilson County Jail.

A jury had convicted the former Wilson County Jail trusty on both charges March 26. Lewis had been sentenced Jan. 13 to two 18-year prison terms after pleading guilty to escape and evading arrest or detention with a motor vehicle, along with a 20-month stint for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. These charges also are related to the same incident. (See “Jury convicts jail escapee of robbery, assault,” April 2.)

Saxon also presided over Wilson County District Court May 14 when she dismissed an aggravated robbery charge against Pedro Sanchez Silva. The 47-year-old, who was one of two charged in connection with an October 2013 robbery near the Guadalupe County line, died of cancer April 27.

Among the other defendants present in court May 14 were:

•Bobby Lee Frazier Sr., 37, subject of a motion to revoke probation in connection with his 2010 intoxication manslaughter conviction, following the death of Nathan Davenport of Adkins. 81st Judicial District Assistant District Attorney Audrey Louis said Frazier recently tested positive for cocaine use and will return to court June 16, where he faces the possibility of 10 years’ imprisonment.

•Kyle McKay, 19, charged with murder, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and possession of more than 4 grams but less than 200 grams of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1, following the November 2012 death of 22-year-old Dakota Reynolds. McKay was in court for a docket call and will return for another docket call June 3, with jury selection ahead of his trial set for June 23.

•Royce Houston Smith, 40, charged with possession of a prohibited substance in a correctional facility, was present for a docket call, during which court records indicate he fired his attorney and asked to represent himself. Smith and his alleged accomplice, 30-year-old Basilio Garcia, were set to return to court to file a motion in the case May 19, with jury selection ahead of their trial set for May 27.

•Patsy Lynne Ritchey, 54, charged with theft of property worth more than $20,000 but less than $100,000, misapplication of fiduciary property, and theft of property worth more than $1,500 but less than $20,000, was present for a docket call. She is set to return to court July 30, when -- depending on a grand jury’s decision -- she also could be arraigned on insurance fraud charges.

•Carter Lambeck, 36, charged with failure to stop and leave information, in connection with a 2013 crash on S.H. 123 near Stockdale, present for a docket call. He returns to court June 3 for a docket call, with jury selection ahead of his trial set for June 23.
