Officials stated prosecutors Kacey Launius and Rebekah Saunders worked closely with investigators of the Galveston Police Department and consulted with family members of Dr. Hughes in coming to the agreement.
In a statement, officials added, “One of the benefits to the State of Texas in Llewellyn’s plea to seven years in prison is that the State no longer had to reach any agreements with Cianna Mims in exchange for her testimony against Llewellyn. The State can now proceed in prosecuting Cianna Mims to the full extent of her involvement in the death of Dr. Hughes.”
Tampering with evidence carries a range of punishment of 2-10 years prison.
