A good start

Congratulations to Heather Miller, your staff and to the Seguin PD and the Guadalupe SO on a job well done!

'Crips', associates get 227 years in prison
Law enforcement and DA’s office work together to lock away 20 in connection with area organized crime

SEGUIN - A long local law enforcement war on two local factions of the "Crips" criminal street gang has sent 20 to state prison for sentences totaling 227 years - and more are headed that way as authorities here work to suppress organized crime.

Christopher R. Wilson, 21, recently pleaded guilty to a second-degree felony robbery allegation and awaits sentencing in 25th Judicial District Court.

The guilty plea marks the 21st Crips-connected conviction - all but one of which came without trial - in a two-year fight mounted by 25th Judicial District Attorney Heather Miller, Seguin Police Chief Kevin Kelso and Sheriff Arnold Zwicke in an effort to curtail drug and gang-related violence in Seguin and Guadalupe County and essentially take back the streets on behalf of law-abiding citizens.
