We are learning more about the man accused of shooting DPS Trooper Chad Walker just outside of Mexia Friday night.
In February of 2006, Crockett Police arrested DeArthur Pinson, Jr. on a charge of Aggravated Robbery.
Pinson was convicted in November of 2007 and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Just under ten years later, police in Palestine, Texas arrested him on a charge of Criminal Trespass, which is a Class B misdemeanor. He was convicted and sentenced in January of 2019.
DPS says Walker’s condition has stabilized, but it is still critical. Walker has a wife, a 15-year-old son, twin seven-year-old girls, and a two-month-old daughter.
