Bail Jumping and Failure to Appear resulted in a five year sentence in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for Keri Amanda Crump, 29, of Sulphur Springs. She was sentenced Friday afternoon in Eighth Judicial District Court, according to Clay Harrison, Assistant District Attorney.

The charge of Bail Jumping and Failure to Appear was the result of Crump not appearing for her second day of trial in December 2017. She was present for the first day, Monday, December 11, 2017, but did not return Tuesday, December 12th. On that Tuesday, a Hopkins County Jury found her guilty of  Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 less than 1-gram. The guilty verdict was delivered around 9:30 a.m. and the sentencing phase got underway 15 minutes later. Before 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, the jury sentenced her to two years in state jail and assessed a $10,000 fine.

In April, 2017 Crump was the driver and sole occupant of a vehicle that had been involved in a single vehicle crash that occurred on I-30 eastbound at the 111-mile marker. Crump admitted to deputies at the scene she had smoked PCP just prior to the crash. When arrested by DPS on Airport Road, she also admitted to the trooper that she was under the influence of PCP. She also admitted backing out while driving after smoking the PCP. In a search of the vehicle, three cigar type cigarettes were found. They appeared to be moist which was consistent with being dipped in liquid PCP, according to the arresting officer. A small vial of suspected PCP was found secreted in a cigarette package.
