Court of Appeals of Texas, Second District, Fort Worth
Appeal from the 371st District Court Tarrant County, Texas
Trial Court Nos. 1321486D, 1321487D, 1321493D
Gabriel, Kerr, and Pittman, JJ.
Elizabeth Kerr, Justice.
2013, the trial court placed Michael Hongpathoum on seven
years of deferred-adjudication community
supervision for two offenses and five years for a
• delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine)
of one gram or more but less than four grams. Tex. Health
& Safety Code Ann. § 481.112(c).
• forgery by possession of a forged writing, to-wit:
money. Tex. Penal Code Ann. § 32.21(e).
• theft of a firearm. Id. §

denied his motion to suppress and considered a handgun
recovered during an illegal search;
(2) in the theft-of-a-firearm case, he argues that the $995
ordered in reparations "due to CSCD" has no basis
in the record and should thus be deleted from the judgment;
(3) in the delivery-of-a-controlled-substance case, he
maintains that the $1, 520 ordered in reparations for unpaid
probation fees is unwarranted and should be struck from the
(4) the $700 fine levied against him in the
delivery-of-a-controlled-substance case is improper because
the trial court did not assess a fine when pronouncing
sentence after his adjudication.
overrule Hongpathoum's first, third, and fourth points
but sustain his second point. We thus delete the $995
reparations award from the theft-of-a-firearm judgment and
affirm it as modified. We affirm the
