UPDATED: Big Rich Texas‘ Pamela Martin-Duarte has prior felony conviction
Duarte spent time in jail in the 1980s for forgery.
Style Network’s Big Rich Texas star, Pamela Martin Duarte, has been calling fellow cast members “frauds” all season long. Does forgery fall into that category?
Fannin County criminal records, specifically case number 16237, indicate that Duarte (Hagerty at the time, which appears to be one name before she was Martin and two before Duarte) was convicted of forgery on 11/21/1980. The report also says “confinement is to commence on 08/27/1980, county jail.”
The case has an Order of Dismissal entered 12/11/1985.
UPDATE: If I’m reading this version of events correctly, it looks like Duarte was arrested in May of 1980 and given six months probation. Then it appears that while on probation, she was arrested again and given a five-year probation sentence. But again, that’s strictly my interpretation.
