Bressman was arrested by Troop H of the Aransas State Polie back on May 15 and charged with Absconding, Escape and a number of drug-related charges. He was already on parole for 2017 felony convictions and was returned to the ADC in August of this year.

On Wednesday, Breesman was given eight years with with seven years suspended on two felony counts and the state agreed not to prosecute the Escape charges. He was given jail time credit and all sentences were set to run concurrently with his in-place senetencing.
