In 2005, Brian Bonniwell, 32, from central Texas was sentenced to 10 years of probation stemming from a criminal charge of burglary of habitation.
He is now facing felony charges after authorities said he lied about suffering from terminal breast cancer to avoid the court-ordered community supervision.
A condition of the probation was that Bonniwell had to report in person to his community supervision officer on the second Wednesday of each month.
After missing several appointments with his probation officer in Austin, Brian Bonniwell, 32, provided a written excuse that he had breast cancer and was receiving treatment, according to an arrest affidavit released Wednesday.
The letter, which Bonniwell gave his community supervision officer on July 20, 2010, was purported to be from Texas Oncology-South Austin.
The letter indicated that Bonniwell had been diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma and had “crossed over into terminal status.”
A grand jury subpoena was issued to Texas Oncology for the medical records of Bonniwell. There was no record of Bonniwell ever being a patient of Texas Oncology nor receiving medical services from its treatment outlets.
Bonniwell faces third-degree felony charges for fabricating physical evidence and is currently being held in the Travis County jail.
