The Facts

ANGLETON, TX— A habitual criminal serving 36 years in prison will have to do another 40 after a Brazoria County jury convicted him of possession of a cellular phone in the Darrington Prison Unit.

Michael Manor, 40, was convicted Wednesday of possession of a prohibited substance in a correctional facility for having the phone on him Feb. 21, 2004. He was the first man in Texas to be convicted of possessing a cellular phone under a law that went into effect in 2003.

The new 40-year prison term will not begin until Manor has served his current sentences.


  • i for one am really looking forward to paying more taxes to keep him in prison for another 40 yrs for such a small thing
