Bexar County Grand Jury indicts man for Jan. 2020 murder

This week, Bexar County Grand Juries handed down 203 felony indictments.

Anthony Nash is charged with murder. The indictment alleges that on Jan. 7, 2020, Nash intentionally and knowingly caused the death of Anthony Sanks by shooting Sanks with a deadly weapon (firearm). This case is being prosecuted by the Criminal Trial Division in the 379th District Court. Murder is a first degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.

Faith Barrientes is charged in two separate indictments with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. One indictment alleges that on July 18, 2021, Barrientes used and exhibited a deadly weapon (firearm) and that Barrientes intentionally, knowingly and recklessly caused bodily injury to Mary Diaz by shooting Diaz with said deadly weapon. The other indictment alleges that on July 18, 2021, Barrientes used and exhibited a deadly weapon (firearm) and that Barrientes intentionally, knowingly and recklessly caused bodily injury to Adreanna Perez by shooting Perez with said deadly weapon. Both cases are being prosecuted by the Criminal Trial Division in the 379th District Court. Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a second degree felony punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. A person charged by indictment is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury or a judge. Because these and potentially other cases are either pending or may be under investigation, we can make no further comment on them.

Copies of indictments may be requested from the Bexar County District Clerk. Information on court settings can be found by searching the case online or directly from the court.
