On November 9, 2020, a Texas County Deputy responded to a domestic disturbance on Fisher Drive in the Houston area. A female subject reported a physical altercation had occurred with a male, later identified as Benjamin Hickcox.
The female stated Hickcox had pushed and choked her. Hickcox was located by the deputy walking down the road. Hickcox was questioned and admitted to assaulting the female. Hickcox was arrested and transported to the Texas County Jail.
Texas County Prosecuting Attorney Parke Stevens charged Benjamin T. Hickcox, age 32, of Houston, with Domestic Assault 3rd Degree. Hickcox was held in the Texas County jail pending $150,000 bond.
The above charges are mere accusations and are not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of the charges must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
