Clyde Choate was awarded the Medal of Honor for single-handedly destroying a German tank with a variety of weapons during a battle in France in 1944, and saving an Allied command post. Choate then went on to serve 30 years in the General Assembly, and Union County Historical Society President Patrick Brumleve says he's still remembered fondly in the area.
He was arrested in May of 2013. He is required to register as a sex offender. 55-year-old Snyder Herrin of Hurst will see six years in prison after pleading guilty to unlawful possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
