After completing nearly 10 years of probation, Texas man sent to prison

Rockwall, Texas – In a dramatic turn of events, Rockwell local Beau Arceneaux is set to face six years behind bars after a court rescinded his probation, originally issued for a home invasion robbery conviction from 2014 in Wichita Falls. According to Rockwall News, Arceneaux, nearing the completion of his decade-long probation, has been ordered to serve time due to significant violations of his probationary conditions.

Reflecting on the origins of this case, Arceneaux’s legal troubles stem from a 2013 incident on Featherston Street, Wichita Falls. His alarming actions involved coercing confessions from three individuals about firearm possession and extorting money, leading to initial leniency with a ten-year probation sentence. However, this grace has come to an abrupt end.

Legal documents highlight Arceneaux’s blatant disregard for the probationary guidelines, a factor that influenced the prosecution’s decision to request its termination. Specific breaches included failing to report to the probation office and relocating to Rockwell without the requisite official approval, errors which only intensified the authorities’ resolve to incarcerate him.

Beyond these infractions, Arceneaux is no stranger to law enforcement, with a history of legal violations. One notable episode during his probation includes a 2018 arrest in Clay County following the discovery of an extensive stash of drugs in his possession, including over 25 pounds of marijuana, substantial quantities of THC oil, and numerous Xanax pills.

Arceneaux’s rap sheet extends further back to 2011, with an arrest following a violent altercation, where he faced charges for an aggravated assault involving a deadly weapon. This incident marked the onset of continual legal confrontations.

The court’s latest directive consolidates three distinct robbery sentences, directing Arceneaux to concurrently serve the retributions over a six-year period, a decision that underscores the repercussions of repeated disregard for legal boundaries and community safety.
