When the sentencing hearing continues at 9 a.m. Monday before 207th Judicial District Judge Jack Robison, a jury of seven men and five women will decide what price Benavides and Childs will pay for the 2004 plot that rocked the New Braunfels Police Department. Both face between five and 99 years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000. The jury can recommend that any sentence be probated, letting the convicted felons off without jail time. Childs is the wife of former New Braunfels police officer Jeffrey Childs, who resigned his post during the investigation. No evidence was ever found that Childs knew of the plot between his wife and Benavides,. Benavides, in meetings with an undercover officer posing as a “hit man,” told the would-be assassin how to find Satterfield at her Tomball home, before ultimately seeking to postpone the “hit” before he was arrested. In his last discussion with the undercover officer, the officer DUCKS CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Lucky winner could receive $100,000 special “Quack Pack” deal, which features a miniature keepsake duck and five racing ducks for $25.

Benavides said he would have to check with his “business partner.” The topic of a business partner came up Friday when Benavides’ fiance, Rosio Cas-tanon, testified that Benavides should receive probation. Under questioning by District Attorney Dib Waldrip, Cas-tanon couldn’t recall key details of events that led to the arrests, such as a time when Waldrip revealed she had followed Benavides to a rendezvous with Satterfield at a I louston supermarket parking lot. Castanon said she didn’t remember following Benavides to the meeting. As Waldrip hammered on, Peterson objected on the grounds that whatever information Waldrip's questioning developed would not be relevant to how long a sentence Benavides would get. Robison agreed. “Counselor, the witness is not on trial here,” Robison admonished Waldrip. “Judge, I believe we’ve found die ‘business partner,’” Waldrip retorted before Robison shut him down. On his redirect questioning of Castanon, Peterson asked if she had ever been a business partner of Benavides, and she answered, “no." He then asked if Benavides had ever discussed his plans to have his ex-girlfriend killed. “No," she answered again. iors 55 and older," lx)pez said. “We provide meals to those who are homebound and can’t get to the center as well as meals at the center. T his will help us fund the center’s overall operations and specifically Meals on Wheels." Since the end of June, more than 1,500 ducks have been sponsored. Lopez said that because the ducks are rented each year, it takes 5,000 duck adoptions for the CCSCC to break even. The derby will be held at 6 p.m. July 28 at Landa Park.

Saturday, July 16, 2005 — Herald-Zfjtung — Page 3A CHANGES CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Legislators say more fixes needed down version that closes loopholes without changing the system. For more than 80 years, the franchise tax was based on a company’s net assets. It fell heavily on oil and gas companies, utilities and others with a lot of land and equipment. In the 1980s, companies successfully sued over the tax, forcing the Legislature to patch it in 1991 by making it more like a corporate income tax. The Texas franchise tax, which dates to 1907, raises about $2 billion a year. Only one-fourth of the 580,000 corporations doing business in Texas paid the franchise tax last year, according to the state comptroller’s office. Counting businesses that are not incorporated — such as partnerships and sole proprietors — fewer than one in IO of Texas’ 2.4 million businesses paid the tax, the comptroller estimates. “Ultimately, we will do it because the voters will demand it, the courts will demand it and the state’s economy will demand it," said Sen. Steve Ogden, a College Station Republican who has led the Senate’s tax bill. He called both the House and Senate versions of the bill inadequate. Keffer and Ogden predicted that the legislature would one day be back to restruc ture the state’s business tax. Changing the state’s business tax has confounded Texas politicians for years. When he was governor, President Bush tried and failed to rework the business tax system. Bush made tax reform his top priority in 1997 and asked lawmakers to grant $3 billion in property tax relief. To replace that education money, he advocated spending some of the budget surplus, raising sales and motor vehicle taxes and imposing a business activity tax. But the Legislature wouldn’t go along. Even Republicans who normally supported Bush were lukewarm, amid heavy lobbying by business. Lawmakers settled on a scaled-back plan and a $1 billion tax cut, allowing Bush to claim a partial victory. In the current legislation, closing the loopholes would be one of the revenue sources intended to replace reduced property taxes. Both chambers adopted proposals that would lower school property taxes for homeowners, but to varying degrees. The amount of property tax relief could be a key obstacle for agreement between the two chambers. T he House has proposed lowering the current school property rate from the current maximum of $1.50 per $100 of property value to $1.23 in 2006 and $1.12 the next year. The Senate approved a more modest property tax cut to $1.30 in the first year. iiNCISHIarms 1176 FM306 @ OLD HUNTER RD.
