Holley to serve 7 years probation after release from jail

HOUSTON - The teenager at the center of one of Houston's biggest police brutality cases will spend the next six months in jail in connection with a home burglary case.

Chad Holley, 18, was arrested in June in connection with a burglary at a house in northwest Harris County. He entered a guilty plea in January and faced up to 10 years in prison, officials said.

Holley was taken to the Harris County Jail immediately after the six-month sentence was announced. After his release, Holley will be on probation for seven years.

Holley was supposed to be sentenced on March 14, but when he went to court for that he was arrested again. Harris County Precinct 5 deputy constables said Holley was wanted on a charge of trespassing on school property in January 2012.

"It was simply a fine that was not paid over a year ago on a class-C, which amounts to something like a traffic ticket violation," Holley's attorney, Letitia Quinones said.

Holley has been in the headlines since 2010.

Four Houston police officers were accused of brutality after Holley's previous burglary arrest in March of 2010. That arrest was captured on a storage lot security camera.

A jury found one of the officers not guilty last spring. The other three are still awaiting trial.

Holley was also convicted of burglary after his arrest.
