Burkburnett man back in jail after allegedly violating probation rules

Local News

A Burkburnett man who got his four-year jail sentence suspended to two years probation is in jail after prosecutors say he violated his probation rules.

Dekendrick Young, 30, has two counts of child endangerment and one count of forgery for which he could now face jail time.

He was arrested Thursday afternoon.

In April of 2017, police said he knowingly drove a car with bad brakes with his two young children inside, neither of them restrained.

Officers said he was west on Kell and exiting onto Kemp and tried to use his emergency brake to stop and caused a three-car accident. Both children were taken to the ER for treatment.

His forgery charge is for a March 2016 incident where police said he tried to cash a check for almost $2,000 written from an account that no longer existed.

He was arrested in 2006 when police said he carried a stolen handgun to Hirschi High School, and he has two DWI and three drug possession charges.
