    Aggravated assault enhanced punishment range to 5-99 years due to prior felony convictions.

Brookins cried as he rejected the State's plea offer during jury deliberations saying I can't say I'm guilty when I didn't do it. Hours later the jury was about to be excused for the night to go home but counsel sequestered the jury and the Court placed them in a hotel so they could not have any contact with other individuals or media that could effect their deliberations. The next day the jury continued their deliberations but were deadlocked 10 for not guilty 1 for guilty and one person was not sure. The case was not retried by the State and Mr. Brookins was released from custody and rejoined his family after six months of incarceration.
