Wednesday a Hopkins County jury found Stanton Wayne Yates, 30, guilty of four counts of engaging in organized criminal activity and one count of burglary. In a trial that began Monday morning in 8th Judicial District Court, Assistant District Attorney Clay Harrison said the sentencing phase of the trail began Wednesday afternoon with testimony. Attorney arguments in the sentencing phase will be presented Wednesday afternoon. Yates faces a range of punishment that ranges from probation to life in prison.

Yates is one of two Hunt County brothers who were found in Collin County jail for burglary of a habitation. At the time of their arrest, Hopkins County Sheriff’s officers thought seven burglaries that were under investigation at that time would be cleared.

Yates’ brother, Perry Jeff Yates, pled guilty to burglary and was been sentenced to 20 years in the state penitentiary.
