Rockwall, Texas – A recent development has surfaced in the case of a Rockwall resident, Beau Arceneaux, who is now confronted with incarceration after a near-successful probation period.
According to Rockwall News, Beau Arceneaux, originally convicted for his role in a 2014 home invasion on Featherston in Wichita Falls, faces imprisonment after authorities revoked his 10-year probation shortly before its completion. His previous leniency, under probationary conditions, has been supplanted by a more stringent penalty, converting his three robbery sentences into a consolidated 6-year prison term.
The cause behind the alteration from probation to imprisonment was detailed by the prosecutors. They cited Arceneaux’s non-compliance with mandatory check-ins at the probation office and his unauthorized relocation to Rockwall as primary factors.
Revisiting the case, Arceneaux’s initial convictions stemmed from a 2013 incident. “Arceneaux’s robbery convictions were for going to the home on Featherston in 2013 and pointing a handgun at 3 people and demanding their money.” The severity of his actions then has shadowed his legal record.
Adding to his complex history with the law, Arceneaux experienced a brief stint in prison under ‘shock probation’ following those convictions. His run-ins with the law continued. In 2018, enforcement in Clay County apprehended him following the discovery of an alarming quantity of illegal substances in his vehicle. “In 2018 he was arrested in Clay County when deputies say they found more than 25 pounds of marijuana, THC oil and Xanax pills in his car, and he also had outstanding warrants.” Prior encounters also included a 2011 arrest in Rockwall for an aggravated assault charge.
This series of infractions illustrates a pattern of recidivism, complicating Arceneaux’s legal situation and culminating in his current prison sentence. The community has responded with a mixture of concern and anticipation of improved security following the conclusion of this case.
