Yesterday (March 15, 2022), Matthew Lee Corkern, age 21 and a resident of Harvey Road, was jailed on charges of domestic abuse with aggravated assault, domestic abuse with child endangerment, criminal trespass and violation of a protective order. The incident began Monday (March 14, 2022) when Corkern reportedly physically assaulted a female victim in the presence of a young child and then followed the victim to her residence and attacked her again.
A 22nd Judicial Court Judge issued a warrant for Corkern’s arrest. He was located and arrested at a location on Highway 16.
“Once again we see where unbridled emotions and anger have resulted in an arrest,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “There is no excuse for such behavior, and the jail functions as a good reminder that bad actions always produce bad results.
