With the start of the new year also comes the start of new terms for several Hunt County officials. A swearing-in ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. January 1 in the courtroom of 196th District Court Judge Steve Tittle, on the third floor of the Hunt County Courthouse.

Sentencing is set this week for a local man, who was found guilty earlier this month of aggravated assault, rather than murder, in connection with the 2011 shooting death of a Greenville resident. Sentencing is scheduled Monday in the 196th District Court for Bernard Kelly Jr., who was convicted of the lesser included charge December 5 following a two day trial.
