Zola Ann Wilson

Shackled and mostly quiet in Judge John Stevens felony court, a 46-year-old Port Arthur woman pleaded no contest Tuesday, Feb. 19, to two counts of aggravated assault and admitted her guilt in a U.S. 69 collision that caused the death of a Groves man more than a year ago.

By taking the plea agreement, Zola Ann Wilson avoided a possible prison term of 20 years for the death of Gary Naquin, 34, who died in the accident.
