Brazos County Grand Jury Indicts More Than 50

By  | 

As usual, a wide variety of alleged criminals face indictments handed down by a Brazos County grand jury.

They include William Watson of Nacogdoches. The Garrison High School band teacher faces two charges for his alleged inappropriate relationship with a former student who made the accusations against Watson.

Also indicted was 19-year-old Jacody Peel. The Franklin native faces one count of intoxicated vehicular manslaughter in the death of his brother.

According to police, Peel had several beers and used meth while driving, but lost control and flipped his truck several times. Peel's brother, Jared, died in the accident.

A local mom has been indicted for allegedly stealing out of the cookie jar. Shannon Neal-Buckbee of College Station is accused of stealing about $6,000 from a Fannin Elementary PTA cookie dough fundraiser that she headed up.

According to police reports, Neal-Buckbee said she deposited the money that was to go to playground equipment, but court documents say the bank has no record of the deposit.

Chad Ball of College Station has been indicted on two counts of aggravated robbery. The 20-year-old was arrested in December after threatening Post Oak Mall security.

Police say Ball was approached by authorities believing he had taken some goods. Ball then reportedly pulled the knife and tried to run, only to be tackled by security, who suffered minor injuries in an ensuing scuffle.

Bryan resident Jesus Castillo faces one count of indecency of a child. The 24-year-old is accused of inappropriately touching his girlfriend's five-year-old daughter. According to court documents, Castillo told the young girl to keep the incident a secret so her mom would not get mad.

And a former Bryan police officer is on the other side of an arrest and indictment. William Jarrott faces two charges of driving while intoxicated with a child under the age of 15. Jarrott served with BPD until the 1990s.
