A South Texas minister must serve probation for shooting another preacher in an alleged construction dispute.

A judge in Cuero on Tuesday sentenced Mark Stewart of Corpus Christi to 10 years of deferred adjudication probation. Stewart also must spend 90 days in jail, pay a $5,000 fine and pay the victim’s medical bills.

Stewart pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for the 2010 shooting of lay pastor and contractor John Jackson of Cuero.

The Victoria Advocate reports Jackson allegedly punched Stewart before being shot. Stewart’s lawyer says the dispute involves $70,000 paid for construction work that Jackson allegedly never completed.
