Graham man sentenced to eight years confinement
Tristin Anthony Cromer, 19, of Graham was sentenced Tuesday in the 90th Judicial District Court following a state motion to adjudicate. Cromer was serving a sentence of seven years of community supervision following a guilty plea in November 2021 to the charge of Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity.
In the motion, filed by the 90th Judicial Assistant District Attorney Phillip Gregory, dated Feb. 11, Cromer was accused of violating eight conditions of his adjudicated sentence.
According to the motion, Cromer violated Condition No. 8 on two occasions in Feb. 2022. This condition states that Cromer was to remain in his place of residence from the hours of 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. Cromer was not to leave during this curfew time without written approval from the court.
On or about Feb. 2, Cromer was in a vehicle that was stopped for a traffic violation on Hwy. 287 near the Clay County Sheriff’s Office. Due to the location of the stop, it was determined that Cromer left his residence before 6 a.m. and did not obtain written permission.
During the same stop, Cromer was in a vehicle with Desmond Sanders Jr., who is a documented gang member and has an indicted case pending in the 90th Judicial District Court for Engaging in Criminal Activity.
