Former Marshall Policeman Sentenced to Prison

A Longview court has sentenced a former East Texas law enforcement officer to prison for molesting teenage boys. 47 year old Gerald Wayne Graves, a former Marshall police officer, was given ten years in prison for the latest charge. Graves had pleaded guilty to sexual molestation and gun charges, both violations of his probation on similar 1992 charges. For those, Graves was under a ten year probated sentence. Now, with the new sexual molestation conviction, he must serve at least 20 years before being eligible for parole.
