Bobby DeLeon, 39, also had to pay a $500 fine and $2,568.10 restitution to a Beeville business that made the uniforms.
He is accused of ordering uniforms for the All-Star team from Total Graphics of Beeville and writing a check to cover the cost, according to court records.
However, the check was not honored by the bank because there was not enough money in the account to cover the check, court records revealed.
Court documents do not reveal why there was not enough money in the Little League’s account to pay for the uniforms.
After DeLeon failed to make good on the check, he was indicted on a state jail felony offense of theft, $1,500-$20,000, punishable by up to two years in a state jail and a $10,000 fine.
He accepted a plea bargain arranged by the district attorney’s office in which he agreed to plea guilty to the offense in exchange for a less severe sentence.
District Court Judge Mike Welborn ordered DeLeon to pay restitution at the time of sentencing.
In other action Tuesday, David Anthony Cantu, 27, of Beeville, was sentenced to five years deferred adjudication probation after pleading guilty to possessing a controlled substance in a correction facility.
He is accused of possessing marijuana in the Bee County Jail.
According to court records, a Bee County sheriff’s deputy stopped a vehicle in which Cantu was a passenger on Feb. 22, 2009, after it ran a stop sign at FM 673 and FM 351.
A computer background check of the passengers’ identities revealed Cantu was wanted by authorities on three charges, court records revealed.
During the traffic stop and during the booking-in process at the county jail, Cantu was asked if he was concealing illegal substances and he denied having any illegal substance on him.
However, during a search inside the jail, a bag of marijuana was found among Cantu’s clothing, a third degree felony offense punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
As part of a plea bargain arranged by the district attorney’s office, Cantu pleaded guilty to the offense in exchange for a less severe sentence. He also agreed to pay a $1,000 fine.
Under deferred adjudication probation, defendants are not judged immediately. If they fulfill the terms of their probation, they are not judged and thus have no criminal records in connection with the offense. However, if they fail to abide by the terms of their community supervision, they can be sentenced to the maximum amount of time in prison without a trial.
