Posted by: tdt -


“It’s not over till it’s over and I have not accepted the plea agreement,” stated Edwyna Womble, Hartley County Justice of the Peace. The plea agreement mailed to Shane Turner; Hartley County Attorney has not been accepted by J.P. Womble.  Joe Marr Wilson attorney for Senator Suzanne Williams mailed the letter and a check from his law firm’s account for three hundred and eighty six dollars.
The check dated September 28, 2011 was attached to a letter addressed to Shane Turner and stated Ms. Williams is pleading no contest to Cause No. 060807, failure to maintain a single lane and her son is pleading no contest to Cause No. 060810, failure to be secured by a safety belt. The citations were issued resulting from the December 26, 2010 accident which claimed the life of former Hartley County resident Brianna White Gomez.
In an exclusive interview with The Texan on Tuesday, October 11, 2011 J.P. Womble explained, “under Texas transportation code, section 545.412 Senator Williams has not paid the full amount imposed by the code. “I want to be a thorn until she is held accountable. And, you may quote me on that.”
