HENDERSON COUNTY (KYTX) - A lot of hard work in Henderson County put two on the run fugitives in jail. Joy Lynn Everrett and Pete Quinonez had been on the run from law enforcement but were finally brought into custody on Tuesday.

In early 2012 Everrett was convicted for Possession of a Controlled Substance. On behalf of Scott McKee's District Attorney Office, Attorney Justin Weiner and Nancy Rumor prosecuted the case. The jury quickly delivered a convicting verdict.

On April 3, 2012, a month later, the court heard evidence at a punishment hearing where Weiner stated: "This is someone who has failed to take responsibility for their actions on every level," Weiner stated.  "While she was out on bond, and awaiting a trial in this court, she was caught with even more suspected methamphetamine, and went to great and extremely bizarre lengths to try to conceal evidence."

The court then sentenced Everett to a term of 8 years in prison. She appealed the case was granted bail while the appeal was pending. Everrett took the opportunity to run away so she wouldn't have to serve her sentence. 

On April 24, 2013, the Twelfth Court of Appeals in Tyler affirmed the conviction securing Everett's 8 year sentence.

Deputy Kyle Pochobradsky received information regarding Everretts whereabouts.

Everett was living in a residence at 117 Estrota Drive in Cherokee Shores with Pete Quinonez who also was a fugitive Ont the run.

Quinonez had an outstanding bond forfeiture for a Possession of a Controlled Substance case as well as a Motion to Revoke pending for failure to pay child support.

Captain Bryan Tower, Captain Kay Langford, Deputy Michael Teel, and Narcotics Investigator Wick Gabbard arrived at the residence where a lengthy standoff ensued. Everett eventually removed the barricade from the front door to the home and came out willingly.

 

Both Everrett and Quinonez were taken into custody and transported to the Henderson County Jail. Everett will await transport to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to serve out her sentence and Quinonez will be held on his current pending charges.

District Attorney Scott McKee praised the work of Deputy Pochobradsky for his efforts in locating the fugitives.
