May 11

Melvin Dean Marshall, of Meadowlakes, Texas, ordered to pay restitution of $382,477.49 on May 11, 2007, in the 33rd District Court of Burnet County, Texas, Cause No. 32521. This order was based on Marshall's previous convictions in November 2006 for theft and securities fraud. At that time, Marshall was tried before a jury based on allegations that he sold investment agreements through his insurance company, Marshall Insurance Agency, Inc., and took approximately $2 million from primarily elderly victims. The jury convicted Marshall on both charges and sentenced him to an 11 year confinement for theft and 10 years of community supervision for securities fraud.
