Guilty plea expected in armed robbery case

GREENVILLE — A local man may enter a guilty plea this week to an armed robbery indictment, which alleged he used an assault rifle during a November hold-up.

Larry Michael Mata, 25, of Greenville, was indicted by the Hunt County grand jury in February on one count of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, and entered a not guilty plea during an arraignment hearing in March before 196th District Court Judge Steve Tittle.

Mata is scheduled to enter another plea during a hearing in the court Wednesday morning.

Mata remains in custody at the Hunt County Jail Thursday, in lieu of a total of $206,000 bond. Mata is also facing one count each of possession of a controlled substance and prohibited substance in a correctional facility.

Mata was alleged in the aggravated robbery indictment to have used an assault rifle to threaten a male victim while in the course of stealing money in Greenville on Nov. 14, 2013.

Aggravated robbery is a first degree felony, punishable upon conviction by a maximum sentence of from five to 99 years to life in prison and an optional fine of up to $10,000.
