Former WEDCO Head Headed To Jail

The for­mer head of the Williams County Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (WEDCO), has been sen­tenced on OVI charges in Bryan Munic­i­pal Court.

Dia­mond Zim­mer­man was sen­tenced to serve 90 days in jail, with 70 days sus­pended… as long as she has no new vio­la­tions within two years. Zim­mer­man will also lose her dri­vers license for one year, and she was ordered to pay $839 in fines, plus court costs. She also must con­tinue with coun­sel­ing.

Zim­mer­man resigned from WEDCO fol­low­ing her arrest last Octo­ber. Orig­i­nally, she had pleaded not guilty, but then changed that plea to no con­test. It wasn’t her first con­vic­tion for dri­ving drunk. Zim­mer­man was con­victed of OVI back in 2011 too.
