The Hunt County grand jury has returned multiple indictments alleging incidents of aggravated assault.
— Timothy James Hobbs, 33, of Wylie, received one indictment for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Hobbs was alleged in the indictment to have stabbed a male victim with a knife on Nov. 23, 2012.
— Brandon Shane Hooten, 37, of Greenville, received one indictment for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Hooten was alleged to have threatened a female victim with a knife on January 9.
A local man, arrested in connection with last week’s reported robbery/shooting on Broadview Street in Greenville, is seeking a reduction in his almost $1 million in bonds on the charges.
At the time of the shooting, Christopher Steven Martin of Greenville was already free on bond on multiple charges in connection with a January 2 incident on Walworth Street. Martin is now facing multiple counts of aggravated robbery and aggravated assault involving the January 15 shooting.
Hunt County voters will decide the fate of a bond measure in the upcoming Nov. 5 election. If approved, the bond would fun new emergency-care facilities in Commerce and Quinlan. In this audio clip, Hunt Regional Healthcare CEO Richard Carter explains the plans.
