Couple must display theft signs
A Houston couple convicted of theft must display signs, outside their home and near a mall, saying they are thieves.
On Friday, prosecutors said Eloise Guerrero Mireles and Daniel Domingo Mireles were sentenced to 10 years’ probation.
She is a former assistant in the Harris County district attorney’s office who on Thursday was ordered by Judge Kevin Fine to repay more than $265,000 diverted from crime victims. She must also serve 180 days in prison, followed by one month in jail annually for six years.
Daniel Mireles must pay restitution and must be in jail every July for six years. DA spokeswoman Donna Hawkins says the wife, when freed, must hold a sign in the Galleria area every Sunday for six years, indicating she is a thief. The husband, when freed, must display a thief sign every Saturday during the period.
