A Beeville man who allegedly hit another man with a brick during an Aug. 30, 2008, altercation faces a possible life sentence in prison if he is convicted of an aggravated assault with bodily injury with a deadly weapon charge.

The defendant, Steven Guajardo Servantes, was indicted last Thursday when the new, January term of the Bee County Grand Jury met for the first time since being appointed earlier this month.

According to investigators with the Bee County Sheriff’s Department, Guajardo was accused of hitting another man with a brick on Aug. 30, 2008. That charge was enhanced to a first degree felony, punishable by a prison term of from five to 99 years or life in prison and a fine of as much as $10,000.

Servantes also was indicted on a charge of retaliation, enhanced to a second degree felony. That is punishable by a prison term of from two to 20 years and a fine of as much as $10,000 if he is convicted.

That indictment was based on an accusation that Servantes threatened to kill a witness to the offense for reporting the crime.

Deputies asked that the charges be enhanced to the next higher punishment range because the defendant had a previous felony conviction on a charge of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury on Jan. 6, 1997, in Bee County.

District Judge Joel Johnson set bond on the defendant at $10,000.

Others indicted Thursday included:

•Emily Campos Hernandez on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, cocaine, four to 200 grams with intent to deliver.

The offense is a first degree felony.

Deputies alleged that the defendant had the drug in her possession on Nov. 17, 2008.

Bond was $4,000.

•Felipe Maldonado Moreno Jr. on two counts of robbery.

Beeville Police Department investigators claimed that Moreno put his arm around the neck of a local woman and forced her to the ground while he was trying to steal property from her during a June 13, 2008, incident.

His bond was $10,000.

•Mark Ybarra on a charge of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault, a second degree felony.

BPD officers alleged that Ybarra entered the home of a local woman on May 11, 2008, without her consent and with the intent to assault her.

Johnson set his bond at $5,000.

•Jonathan Rey Gonzales in a four-count indictment.

Count one of the indictment listed a charge of delivery of a controlled substance, cocaine, one-four grams. Police claimed that offense took place on Nov. 26, 2007, and is a second degree felony.

Count two of the indictment was on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance, cocaine, less than one gram, in a drug-free zone. That offense is a third degree felony punishable by a prison term of from two to 10 years in prison and a fine of as much as $10,000.

Count three of the indictment was on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance, cocaine, from one to four grams. That offense is a second degree felony.

The fourth count of the indictment was on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, cocaine, with intent to deliver, less than one gram. That charge is a state jail felony punishable by a term of from six months to two years in a state jail facility and a fine of as much as $10,000.

Sheriff’s investigators reported that count two of the indictment took place on Nov. 27, 2007, and that the transaction took place within 1,000 feet of Moore Park, a playground located at 1500 S. Adams Street.

According to deputies, counts three and four of the indictment took place on Dec. 18 and 20, 2007.

Bond was $10,000.

•Eva Eusebia Campos on a charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, cocaine, four-200 grams. The offense is a second degree felony.

Deputies alleged that the defendant had the drug in her possession on Nov. 14, 2008.

Bond was $10,000.
