JEFFERSON – District Judge Robert Rolston approved a motion Friday to revoke the probation of Daniel E. Pierce, III.
Pierce had received an eight-year probated sentence in January for tampering with evidence in the wake of the discovery of his starving dogs chained to an abandoned school bus last fall. Video of the dogs became a social media storm.
Pierce again achieved notoriety after he failed to attend required probation meetings, becoming one of Marion County’s unserved felony warrants.
Texas DPS officers arrested Pierce in Marshall and returned him to Marion County.
Pierce acted as his own attorney during the two-hour hearing which included the calling of witnesses.
