LIMESTONE COUNTY - Five more people have been sentenced in connection with the assaults of two Texas game wardens following a high speed chase in Limestone County back in Oct. 2013.

Back in May, we reported that a Limestone County jury sentenced Teddy Davenport, 44, to 50 years in prison for ramming into two Texas game wardens. The passenger in the vehicle, 52-year-old Richard Fraser, was also arrested in connection with the incident.

On Friday, June 6, in 87th State District Court before Judge Deborah Oakes Evans, Fraser entered guilty pleas to five felony counts.

He was sentenced to 10 years for one count of 3rd degree degree felony evading arrest with a deadly weapon, 10 years for one count of 3rd degree felony burglary of a building with a deadly weapon, 10 years for one count of 3rd degree felony burglary of a habitation with a deadly weapon, and sentenced to 30 years on each count for two counts of 1st degree felony aggravated assault of a public servant with a deadly weapon. These sentences will be served concurrently, or at the same time.

The TPWD Criminal Investigation Division and Internal Affairs investigators did a follow-up investigation and arrested seven others in this case.

In 87th District Court, on May 22, 52-year-old Lewis Dean Cagle, of Buffalo, pleaded guilty to one count of 3rd degree felony hindering apprehension/prosecution of a known felon and was sentenced to seven years deferred probation, a $2,000 fine and 192 community service hours. Also in 87th District Court, on June 6, Larry Thompson, of Groesbeck, pleaded guilty to one count of 3rd degree felony hindering apprehension of a known felon, and was sentenced to four years in prison.

On May 27, William A. "Trey" Davidson III, 37, pleaded guilty in 77th District Court to one count of 3rd degree felony hindering apprehension/prosecution of a known felon and was sentenced to four years in prison. She also pleaded to one count of 2nd degree felony possession of a controlled substance greater than 4 grams and less than 200 grams of methamphetamine and was sentenced to four years in prison. Both of these sentences will run concurrently.

Tanya Marie Lee also pleaded guilty in 77th Court to one count of 3rd degree felony hindering apprehension/prosecution of a known felon and was sentenced to six years deferred probation, a $2,000 fine and 192 community service hours. The 38-year-old Teague woman also pled guilty to one count of 2nd degree felony possession of a controlled substance greater than 4 grams and less than 200 grams of methamphetamine and was sentenced to six years deferred probation, $1,500 fine, 192 community service hours, and attendance at Narcotic Anonymous and Alcoholic Anonymous meetings.

Three of the people arrested in connection with this case are still awaiting prosecution.


Previous story on Davenport's sentences:

The man who rammed into two Texas game wardens in Limestone County has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.

A Limestone County jury sentenced 44-year-old Teddy Davenport after he was convicted of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary and evading arrest. The jury gave him 50 years for the assault charges and 10 years for the other counts. Those charges will run concurrently.

The game wardens were watching for illegal road hunting in October 2013, when they tried to stop a car with its lights off. That vehicle rammed into their patrol car. The cars were still drivable and Davenport led them on a high speed chase.

At some point, another car shined its lights in front of the game wardens, which sent them into a culvert. Two game wardens were hurt and one was taken to the hospital.

Davenport was caught two days later in a wooded area in Freestone County.
