According to KWTX the word out of Cameron on Friday was Guilty!

A jury in the 20th State District Court in Cameron returned a verdict  of guilty this past Friday for William James Crenan, 59, of Burlington.

The charge, cattle rustling. I know, you're tempted to check the calendar to see if this is really 2016. It is, and this is still a thing.

Back in 2013 Mr. Crenan was charged with the theft of more than a 100 head of cattle that belonged to an elderly El Paso rancher.

The trial took a week, and now Mr. Crenan could be sentenced to 5 to 99 years, and fined as much as $10,000 dollars.
