In a recent development at the Dallas District Attorney's Office, 58-year-old Neil Noble, who was previously convicted of Stalking, faced probation revocation and was subsequently sentenced to a 10-year prison term.
Neil Noble's legal ordeal began on May 3, 2021, when he stood trial for the charge of Stalking of high-profile lawyer Messina Madsen. Despite the challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the trial proceeded successfully with the implementation of safety protocols. Following the trial, a jury found him guilty as charged. Noble was initially sentenced to 10 years, with 4 years to be served on probation, including intensive monitoring through an Electric Leg Monitor.
However, on August 25, 2023, Neil Noble took drastic action by cutting off his ankle monitor. Subsequently, members of the Dallas Police Department's Fugitive Unit apprehended him on a probation violation warrant.
On September 29, 2023, Judge Collins presided over the probation revocation hearing, where Neil Noble's probation was revoked, and he was found guilty of the original charge. As a result, he was sentenced to serve 10 years in the penitentiary. Notably, the victim in the Stalking case was former First Assistant District Attorney Messina Madson, and former ADA Jody Warner also testified during the punishment phase, revealing that Noble had harassed her through text messages during the same time frame.
The outcome of the hearing has left Neil Noble with a guilty verdict and a 10-year prison sentence.
