One Killeen man knew something wasn't right when he paid for his dinner – his instincts were proven correct when he looked at his credit card statement.
Judge Fancy Jezek of the 426th District Court sentenced Great Gergory Rommel, 21, of Killeen, to two years in state jail, probated for five years, and 30 days in the Bell County Jail for credit card abuse on July 25.
The affidavit stated the victim noticed several purchases for pizza made on his credit card, which he did not authorize. He also told police that he suspected his waiter at Denny's to be the culprit because the waiter had been acting strangely during his visit.
The affidavit further stated Rommel, the Denny's waiter, admitted to his culpability in the crime, stating, "I just want all this to be over."
Rommel will serve probation time for the next five years, and will avoid jail time altogether if he can live out that term without incident.
Jezek also sentenced:
Valerie Ann Anzaldua, 21, of Temple, to two years of deferred probation and a $1,000 fine for credit card abuse on March 7, 2007.
Randy Sue, 27, of Harker Heights, to one year in Bell County Jail, probated for two years, and a $500 fine for driving while intoxicated with a child passenger on Oct. 26.
Jezek found Nicolas Trujillo Jr., 20, of Belton, guilty of possession of a controlled substance, less than one gram, on June 5, 2007. His sentencing will be Jan. 20.
Robert Renee Jones, 50, of Temple, to 10 years of deferred probation, a $1,000 fine and a curfew of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., along with $62,427 in restitution for indecency with a child by contact on July 17, 2007. The affidavit stated that Jones fondled an underage girl during a gathering at a neighborhood pool, then bragged about it to someone.
