Judge sentences Haynes to two years probation, $2,000 fine; Haynes' appealing
BEAUMONT - Judge Langston Adams has sentenced Jessie Haynes, the BISD Special Assistant to the Superintendent for Communications, to the two years probation, 100 hours of community service, an anger management program and an impulse control program, after a jury convicted her of the Class B Misdemeanor of obstructing a public passageway.
He also sentenced her to 90 days in jail but suspended the sentence, meaning she won't serve time in jail if she satisfies the terms of probation. The maximum sentence for such a crime is up to 180 days in jail and/or up to a $2,000 fine. The maximum probation is two years.
Haynes' lawyer has already filed an appeal.
