Local man convicted of injury to a child

For the second time in his life, Cory Don Crosby, of Gatesville, has been convicted of injuring a child.

On Wednesday, a Coryell County jury found Crosby, 34, guilty of injury of a child. The third degree felony was enhanced to a second degree felony due to a previous conviction in 2003 for injury to a child. Members of the Gatesville City Council considered a wide range of options Tuesday before approving a proposed tax rate on a split vote. City Manager Bill Parry presented the proposed budget during a workshop at Tuesday’s meeting, which is based on the current tax rate of 46 cents per $100 valuation. He noted several items were not included in the budget, including additional personnel, most capital purchase

The same jury then sentenced Crosby to the maximum of 20 years in prison and also assessed a $5,000 fine.
