All three sentences would run concurrently.

He pled guilty to assault causing bodily injury family violence (assaulting his sister) on May 9, 2001 and was sentenced to a suspended term of up to 365 days in jail and placed on probation for two years. He was required to pay a $500 fine, submit to intensive outpatient alcohol counseling, attend Alcoholics Anonymous twice a week, write a letter of apology and perform one hundred hours of community service as conditions of his probation.

He pled guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon family violence on November 15, 2017 (attempting to stab his brother with a seven inch knife and threatening him with garden shears) and was sentenced to two years TDCJ. He pled guilty for a second time to assault causing bodily injury family violence with a prior conviction (striking the same brother with a sharp object and a piece of wood or stick) on October 21, 2019 and was sentenced to three years TDCJ (his sentence for aggravated assault had already been served, and he had more than two years jail credit towards his three year sentence since his arrest in September 2017).

On March 16, 2021, less than six months after his release from prison, he was arrested for assaulting his brother a third time by cutting him with a knife or bladed instrument. He was released on $18,000 bond (he had to pay a bond company ten percent) on April 3, 2021 and was indicted for assault causing bodily injury family violence with a prior conviction as a habitual offender on April 23, 2021.
