Former part-time Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace clerk Lettie Delores Mosquedo-Jasso was sentenced Tuesday on five cases of tampering with a government record.
The 32-year-old was sentenced to 270 days confinement in a state jail on one case. On the four remaining cases, she was sentenced to 10 years deferred adjudication. She was also assessed a $6,000 fine on one of the probation cases. She will be required to serve time in a state jail, then be on probation once she is released, according to District Attorney Will Ramsay.
The charges resulted from a regular internal office audit of court records in the justice of the peace court. After discrepancies and a complaint from an individual, the cases were turned over to the Texas Ranger. Warrants were issued in July 2018 for her arrest. She was taken into custody in another state in August 2018, and transferred to Hopkins County jail.
Three of the offenses occurred in July of 2018, and one each in May and June of 2018, according to court records.
Mosquedo-Jasso turned herself in at 4:55 p.m. June 26 at the county jail to begin serving her time.
