Update for Tuesday, April 4, 2023

FORMER SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR SENTENCED — Former Boyd High School assistant principal Kevin Evans was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday after pleading guilty to a second-degree felony charge of intoxication manslaughter in the 415th District Court in Parker County in January. Evans was arrested for intoxication manslaughter in the early morning hours of Jan. 9, 2020, following a hit-and-run accident involving a pickup and a pedestrian in the 4200 block of Texas 199 that killed Ernest Doniver Medley, 51, of Springtown. Per the accident report, Medley had been walking westbound on the shoulder of Texas 199 when Evans’ 2014 Chevrolet Silverado veered off the roadway approximately 20 feet and struck Medley with the front, ride side of his truck. Medley was later pronounced dead at the scene, while Evans kept driving. A Springtown officer located Evans about six miles away, conducted field sobriety tests and placed Evans under arrest. According to a press release from the Parker County District Attorney’s Office, an investigation by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission revealed Evans had consumed five to six pint-sized beers at On The Patio, an Azle bar, after leaving work at 4 p.m. “Mr. Evans had no criminal record, and was, by all accounts, a model citizen prior to this tragedy,” Parker County District Attorney Jeff Swain said. “But the decisions he made that night cost a man his life, and his family the chance to have him in their lives. Our choices have consequences. In our view, that meant he had to go to prison.”
