Probation for Jeffrey Edward Mowrer, 26, was revoked Tuesday morning in Eighth Judicial District Court. Mower has been sentenced to five years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and will serve at least half the sentence before being eligible for parole due to aggravated parole rules, according to Clay Harrison, Assistant District Attorney. Harrison said Mower will be facing 25 years to life if he commits another felony.
In August of this year, Mowrer was arrested for Tamper Fabricate Physical Evidence with Intent to Impair and Possession of a Controlled Substance less than 28-grams. Mowrer had fled Hopkins County Deputies attempting to serve an arrest warrant for burglaries that occurred in southern Hopkins County where Mowrer was staying with a female on State Highway 154. Mowrer was charged with Unlawful Possession Firearm by a Felon after a .22 caliber pistol and four rounds of ammunition were located in the air breather of a 1992 auto he was driving. The auto broke down after Mowrer had recklessly driven through yards and pastures while fleeing deputies on and off county roads. He had also been charged with Fraud Use/Possession of Identifying Information less than 5 items. An additional charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 less than 1-gram was added when an aluminum vial was found in a backpack in the auto.
