‘Stun gun’ defendant gets eight-year prison sentence

CAMERON—A 50-year- old Cameron man, accused of firing a stun gun at a woman and then sexually assaulting her last spring, has received an eight-year prison term after his probation on a previous conviction was revoked.

Raymond Brann Allison had originally been charged with aggravated sexual assault, a felony, in connection with the incident.

The charge was reduced to misdemeanor assault, to which Allison pleaded guilty and was assessed a 268-day county jail term.

Prosecutor Kerry Spears said her office determined it could not prove the more serious charge “beyond a reasonable doubt” which is the legal standard.

However, Allison is going to prison anyway after he pleaded “true” to violating probation conditions on an original conviction of possession of a controlled substance (1 to 4 grams), and drew the eight-year term from District Judge Ed Magre.

Allison also pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance (less than one gram) and was assessed a 12-month state jail term and ordered to pay $140 restitution.

Other case dispositions:

• Abelino Duarte, 18, Cameron, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by threat, two-year prison term. Duarte also pleaded guilty to burglary of a habitation and received a second two-year sentence. The sentences will run concurrently.

• Frank O’Keith Cash, 18, Cameron, pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance (1 to 4 grams) with intent to deliver, four-year prison term, $140 parole restitution.

• Heather April Aguilar, 35, Austin, pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance (less than one gram), two years deferred adjudication probation, substance abuse evaluation and any recommended treatment, $140 restitution.

• Zachar y Adam K rumnow, 20, Cameron, pleaded guilty to theft of a firearm, credit card abuse and engaging in organized criminal activity and drew three 18-month state jail sentences, plus $2,314.28 in restitution. He also pleaded guilty to theft ($1,500 to $20,000) and drew an 11-year state jail term.
