WOODVILLE – A Corpus Christi man who evaded capture was sentenced to 30 years behind bars last week.
Manuel Cabrera, 27, accepted a plea deal with the Tyler County District Attorney’s Office on charges of evading arrest with a vehicle; possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm.
Cabrera was sentenced by District Judge Delinda Gibbs-Walker.
Cabrera led Steven Hoke with Woodville Police Department on a high-speed chase, which began west of Woodville on US 190 and ended in the city of Ivanhoe. During the chase, District Attorney Lucas Babin noted, Cabrera reached speeds in excess of 100 mph.
Hoke was able to conduct a PIT maneuver on Cabrera’s vehicle, which ended the chase.
When the chase ended and authorities were able to take Cabrera into custody, they discovered him to be in possession of cocaine and a loaded 9-.mm handgun with an extended magazine.
Cabrera remains in the custody of the Tyler County Jail awaiting transfer to a Texas Department of Criminal Justice facility.

Hope his ink is legit. i see at least 4 tatts from contrasting "clubs" and having a tat that wasnt earned can be fatal
This commment is unpublished.· 10 months agoI saw this guy at Walmart on Staples. He caught my eye drift in his direction and I received this really dark and evil energy from him. I totally went out of my way to avoid walking anywhere near him. He was waiting outside in the front with a sack of clothes at his side.
