Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Justin Wilkerson was made aware of a felony warrant for the 33-year-old Sulphur Springs man’s arrest. Acting on information received that the man had been staying at a residence in town, Wilkerson went to the Texas Street residence Friday evening. Wilkerson did indeed contact Bennett at the address and took him into custody shortly after 6 p.m. Jan. 29. Deputy Aaron Chaney arrived to assist.

Consequently, Bennett was jailed for the second time in 5 months on Friday, this time on a family violence assault that impeded the breathing or circulation of a family or household member warrant. The offense, according to arrest reports is alleged to have occurred on Jan. 26, 2021.

Prior to that, he was arrested on Sept. 1, 2020 on a burglary of vehicles charge, but was released from the county jail later that day on a $2,000 bond. His jail records show he had been in custody nearly a dozen times, including commitments in 2008 to be served in a substance abuse felony punishment facility for violating probation on two burglary charges and one possession of controlled substance charge.


The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office is located at 298 Rosemont St., Sulphur Springs, TX 75482. Non-emergency calls can be made to (903) 438-4040.
