GEORGE WEST – Three Live Oak County jailers pleaded guilty to charges of improper sexual activity with an inmate this past week.

Vincent Aguilar, 28, of George West, Israel Charles Jr., 22, of Tuleta and Jaime Enrique Smith, 46, of Beeville pleaded guilty to the charges they were indicted on Feb. 29.

According to records in the Live Oak County district clerk’s office, all three will be sentenced before District Judge Janna Whatley at 9 a.m. June 15 in the district courtroom.

District Attorney Martha Warner said the state is seeking a punishment of two years in a state prison and the maximum fine of $10,000 for each of the three men.

“The judge can do probation if she decides to,” Warner said.

Warner added that the women who were victimized are expected to testify during the punishment phase.

Warner described the crimes as “disgusting.”

Aguilar was indicted on six counts of improper sexual activity with a person in custody. He was continued on an existing bond. He was arrested on Aug. 15, 2010, and released on a $20,000 bond.

Charles was indicted on five counts of improper sexual activity with a person in custody. He was continued on existing bond. He was arrested on Aug. 27, 2010, and released on two bonds of $10,000 each. The bonds were set by Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 Jim Lane.

Smith was indicted on four counts of improper sexual activity with a person in custody. He was continued on existing bond. He was arrested on Aug. 27, 2010. He was released on two $10,000 bonds set by Lane.
