A TEXarkana real estate agent who stole more than $30,000 from a former employer pleaded guilty Wednesday.
Reena Corbin, 35, was indicted in April 2017 by a Bowie County grand jury for theft of property between $30,000 and $150,000 for embezzling from her past employer, Coldwell Banker Elite in TEXarkana. Corbin appeared Wednesday with Texarkana defense attorney John Pickett at a hearing before 102nd District Judge Bobby Lockhart.
After Corbin entered her plea of guilty, Assistant District Attorney Kelley Crisp asked the court to order a pre-sentence investigation to determine the amount of restitution Corbin owes and asked that the case be set for sentencing at a later date. Crisp said she anticipates the defense will ask at sentencing that Corbin be sentenced to a term of deferred adjudication probation though the state will be seeking a final felony conviction and a term of standard probation.
If a defendant receives a deferred adjudication probation and if they successfully complete the term, they do not have a final felony conviction on their record.
Corbin pleaded guilty to a third-degree felony punishable by two to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. As Corbin has no prior felony convictions, she is eligible to receive probation.
