SCSO PIO speaks on 55-year sentencing of Bullard man

TYLER, November 21, 2013—On June 11, 2013, at approximately 2:00 a.m., deputies and detectives from the Smith County Sheriff's Office responded to a call on FM 756, in reference to a suspect who had entered the residence and assaulted a 14-year-old female.

Detectives followed several leads in this case. Information gathered pointed to 26-year-old Marcus Allen Edminston of Bullard.

Detectives were able to get enough evidence to get a warrant on Edminston for Burglary of a Habitation with Intent to Commit Indecency with a Child. Edminston was arrested in reference to this case the next day and was placed in the Smith County Jail on a $750,000 bond.

Today, the Smith County District Attorney’s Office announced that Edminston had entered a plea of guilty to the charges and was sentenced to 55 years in state prison.
