In 2010 Deneishia Washington experienced a bad breakup with a man who resided in the Camden Sugar Grove apartments. According Assistant District Attorney Ali Elam, on August 2, 2010, Stafford police officer Christopher Koenig was dispatched to the apartments after a report that Washington was possibly on the property doing damage to her ex’s vehicle.
The reportee told police where to find his car as well as Washington. Eventually, she came out of hiding near the vehicle and reportedly became hysterical. During her tirade, Detective Preston Ousley, who is also a Stafford police officer, and the officer responsible for security at the apartment complex, arrived on the scene.
During the incident Ousley told Koenig that he had previously given Washington a criminal trespass warning earlier in the week, on July 29, 2010.
“The gated community of Camden Sugar Grove is home to hundreds of residents of Fort Bend County who are entitled to peace and quiet,” said Elam. “When the defendant chose to return late at night and cause another disturbance, she jeopardized the quality of life these citizens are entitled to.”
Washington was arrested that August night for criminal trespass. On May 23, 2012 she was tried before a jury in Fort Bend County Court at Law No. 1. She was found guilty and placed on probation for one year, given 40 hours of community service hours and 30 days in jail, all as conditions to her probation.
Assistant District Attorneys Ali Elam and Andrew Herreth prosecuted the case. Attorneys Ross Torres and Andrew Wright represented Washington.
