William Carroll Boaz was booked into the Kaufman County Jail on January 28, 2018, at 8:33 p.m. He was arrested by the Forney Police Department on a charge of evading arrest or detention. Bond is set at $5000. Boaz is described as a white male, date of birth October 22, 1992, with brown eyes and brown hair, standing 5’ 10” tall, and weighing 192 pounds.
Boaz was arrested on Sunday morning, January 28, 2018, at 5:15 a.m. by Forney Police Department in the 200 block of Spruce Trail in the Chestnut Meadows neighborhood. Forney PD and neighbors in that area have been on alert following several recent reports of thefts of property from vehicles.
On June 1, 2011, Boaz entered a plea of guilty in Kaufman County to a charge of burglary of a habitation for an incident that occurred on January 29, 2010. He was placed on 4 years deferred adjudication probation, assessed a fine in the amount of $500, and ordered to perform 160 hours of community service. On the same date, a charge of theft of property in the amount of $1500 or more but less than $20,000 for an incident that occurred on January 8, 2010, was dismissed.
On August 16, 2017, Boaz entered a plea of guilty to two other charges in Kaufman County, possession of a controlled substance in penalty group 1 in an amount of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams and possession of a controlled substance penalty group 1 in the amount of less than 1 gram. Both charges arose from the same incident on April 27, 2017. He was again placed on deferred adjudication probation, this time for 5 years, assessed a fine in the amount of $1000, and ordered to perform 120 hours of community service. He is still on probation in those cases.
In Dallas County, Boaz has two class B misdemeanor charges pending of theft of property under $100 which were elevated due to previous convictions. Both of those cases were filed by Mesquite PD for incidents which occurred on September 11, 2017.
UPDATE: While Boaz was never charged with any type of theft in the Chestnut Meadows incidents, on November 1, 2018, he did enter a plea of guilty to the evading arrest charge and received a sentence of 5 days in jail and was given credit for time served on that sentence.
Also on November 1, 2018, Boaz’s probation was revoked and adjudicated for failure to “complete terms of probation” in both of the possession of a controlled substance cases and Boaz was sentenced to 8 years in prison for the possession of a controlled substance in penalty group 1 in an amount of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams and also sentenced to 2 years in state jail for the possession of a controlled substance penalty group 1 in the amount of less than 1 gram case.
