In Eighth Judicial District Court Monday, Nakia Dean Lindsey pleaded guilty to Burglary of a Habitation (Assault) and was sentenced to 5 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. He is also scheduled to plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault family violence case in County Court later this week.
The plea to Burglary of a Habitation (assault) was made rather than a plea to the original charge of Burglary of a Habitation (intent to commit murder). Cumby Police identified Lindsey, 35, of Cumby as he was driving on West Main Street in Cumby. Officer Ray Embro knew a warrant for Burglary of a Habitation with Intent to Commit Murder had been issued for Lindsey. Investigator Corley Weatherford of the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office filed for the warrant following his investigation of an incident that occurred when Lindsey assaulted a family member.
Should Lindsey ever commit a felony in the future he faces a penalty of 25-years to life.
