Walker County Commissioner Bobby Warren sentenced to 90 days in Montgomery County jail as part of plea deal.
CONROE — Walker County Commissioner Bobby Warren found himself back in front of a Montgomery County judge Thursday, March 12, in a proceeding stemming from his arrest in January of this year on Class A misdemeanor DWI charges.
Following his Jan. 5 arrest, Willis Police Dept officials told the Houston Chronicle that Warren failed a field sobriety test and was stumbling so badly that he fell while attempting to walk in a straight line. His blood alcohol level at the time of his arrest was twice the legal limit of .08. Warren, 68, who represents Precinct 3, was arrested again Feb. 23 and appeared at a hearing in Montgomery County on Thursday, where the court accepted a plea agreement that involves jail time for the Walker County Commissioner.
As a consequence of his plea agreement, Warren agreed to spend 90 days in the Montgomery County Jail and to a 180-day suspension of his driver’s license. Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Brad Thornton said Warren has until noon Friday, March 13, to turn himself in to Montgomery County authorities and that any violation by Warren would negate the plea agreement. Commissioner Warren also will have to pass an intoxilyzer test upon his surrender. If Warren fails that test, Thornton said, he also loses the current plea deal he made with prosecutors.
**UPDATE for 3-13-15** Staff at the Montgomery County Jail Central Records Office confirmed today via phone that Bobby Warren successfully surrendered to the Montgomery County Jail today as agreed in yesterday’s plea agreement.
