TX: Texan gets 30 years for assaulting game wardens
June 10, 2014
GROESBECK, Texas (AP) - One of two men arrested following a chase
that left two Texas game wardens injured has been sentenced to 30
years in prison in a road hunting and assault case.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department announced Tuesday that
52-year-old Richard Fraser of Groesbeck was sentenced after pleading
guilty to burglary, aggravated assault and other charges.
The game wardens were east of Waco watching for illegal road hunting
in October when they saw a vehicle being driven with its lights off.
That vehicle later rammed the law enforcement vehicle. The patrol
vehicle later hit a culvert.
Fraser was a passenger and the
driver has been identified by authorities as 44-year-old Teddie
Wayne Davenport of Mart, who was sentenced last month to 50 years.
Four others connected to the case received lesser sentences.
