A 19-year-old cattle rustler admitted to stealing six head of cattle from a Texas county in April and was given two years deferred adjudication.
The San Antonio Express-News reports Cameron Hoagland was ordered a probated term, but will serve 180 days in jail for violating probation for a previous offense.
Hoagland sold the stolen Herefords for $4,175 in April. He was charged with livestock theft, a third-degree felony and could face up to 10 years in jail if he violates probation.
In an earlier report, the Express-News reported three of the cows were returned to their owner, but the other three were sold at the Seguin Cattle Co. Auction. Hoagland’s co-defendant, Malcom Brietzky, is awaiting indictment.
