AUSTIN (KXAN) — Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg announced Wednesday a grand jury has decided to indict a former corrections officer accused of tampering with evidence and giving a false report.
The indictment of Dustin D’Amalfi stems from a cell extraction of Dacious Parker at the Travis County Correctional Complex on July 25, 2015.
Parker, who has a long criminal history, was convicted on June 9, 2015 for aggravated assault with serious bodily injury and sentenced to 20 years in prison. He was at the hospital while receiving treatment for an illness.
D’Amalfi now faces a third degree felony punishable by two to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. For the alleged false report to a police officer, D’Amalfi faces a Class B misdemeanor punishable by jail time of up to 180 days and a fine up to $2,000.
