Jury Sentences Pasadena Man to 2 Years Probation for Harassment of a Public Servant

March 7, 2017

 

GALVESTON – Today, Eddie Havok Julian Morales, 23, was convicted and sentenced by a jury to 2 years probation for harassment of a public servant.

Yesterday, Morales’ jury trial began. The State presented witness testimony detailing Morales’ actions on March 19, 2016. Testimony revealed that a Hitchcock Police Department patrol officer saw a vehicle parked on the side of the road and a male in the passenger seat who was passed out. After several unsuccessful attempts to awaken the male, the officer saw that the male’s eyes appeared to have rolled back into his head. The officer saw a wallet on the floorboard and based on a Texas Driver’s License identified the male as Morales.

EMS assistance was requested to evaluate Morales. After being awakened by EMS, Morales became extremely combative requiring three officers to restrain him. Because of his agitated state officer assistance was requested for the ride to Mainland Medical Center. While en route to the hospital Morales spit in the officer’s face.

Under Texas law, a person commits the offense of Harassment of a Public Servant when the person—with the intent to assault, harass, or alarm—causes another person whom the person knows to be a public servant to contact the blood, seminal fluid, vaginal fluid, saliva, urine, or feces of the actor while the public servant is lawfully discharging an official duty.

This morning, the jury deliberated for about 10 minutes before returning with a guilty verdict. The punishment stage of trial immediately followed. Morales, who had no criminal history and was eligible for probation, faced a sentencing range of 2 years to 10 years in the Institutional Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. After hearing closing arguments and deliberating for about 40 minutes, the jury returned with a punishment verdict of 2 years probation.

Morales was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Charlotte Kim and Anthony Smith in the 56th District Court, with Judge Lonnie Cox presiding. The investigation was conducted by the Hitchcock Police Department.


Tiffany M. Alfred,

Assistant Criminal District Attorney

Should have done some time behind bars. What if he had some type of airborne decease. Bad example giving him probation
