Rodgers to finish prison sentence on community supervision


Kasey Eldon Rodgers, 35, of Henrietta, has been released from the state prison system, and will continue a 10-year sentence on community supervision.

In August, Rodgers plead guilty to Feb. 23, 2012 burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony, receiving a 10-year sentence, and the July 13, 2012 burglary of a building, a state jail felony, receiving a two-year sentence. The sentences are running concurrently.

On Tuesday, Jan. 22 the 97th District Court issued an order for shock community supervision, which allows for the sentence of a “model inmate” to be commuted. Paige Williams, 97th District Attorney, said a motion for shock community supervision was filed by Rodgers’ attorney and ordered by Judge Roger E. Towery.

Williams said such an order is rare, and only inmates with a good record are eligible, and only in certain situations.

Rodgers has nine years, six months remaining on his sentence.

Plea agreements reached on Tuesday are as follows:

Becky Michelle Roman — Burglary of habitation, a second-degree felony, or a July 4, 2012 offense. Roman was sentenced to seven years community supervision and fined $3,500. Roman was credited six days served.
