West Texas News from San Angelo
in Teen Charged With Capital Murder Takes 35 Year Plea Deal
That is an absurd sentence for a double murder. Should have sought a death sentence and settled for 2 life sentence with no parole.
in Sentencing: Jury Recommends Zapata to Serve 6 Months in Jail
If this would have been anybody else, they would have hung him from the highest tree.... He should have lost his law license, made to pay back all the money he stold, sell his and his families BMW cars. This is so unfair. Why did you wast the tax payers money on this trial? Oh wait.... that is what San Angelo does... pick and choose who gets punished... I see how it is..... oh... and at the very least 5 years in lock-up, general population no less. He will probably do it again. But be a little more discreet.............That's all I have to say about that.
I guess none of you kept up with the case, he already paid back the original sum of money. The 40,000.00 would be in addition too. If you're going to complain at least get the facts right!
I guess He's paying the fines with that money. So all the money he stole goes back to the justice system.
That's pretty cocky for the lady to tell a Texas Ranger that. Might come back and bite them in the butt. I can't believe the sentences given and yes, what about all the money that he stole? I agree that it Sure was a waste of time for everyone. Marc Valdez got 30 years for beating up a guy and this guy gets 6 months in jail and probation for all that he did? He needs to pay back all the money he stole as well.
Maybe he'll get a private butler and other amenities while he does his HUGE sentence. Waste of our, the taxpayers, money!
The power of prayer.
Hate to see the razz on Nick Hanna. Knew him a long time ago. Nice family man.
I want a mixed bunch of lib-tards and democrats as my juror's if I ever do anything illegal and get tried for it........... A complete waste of everyone's time.
All that for 6 months probation? I guess he got to keep the money too?
Pretty good decision on his part, a slap in the face for justice though. With his age, good behavior and over crowding conditions, he will be home in less than 5 years..........
in When is the New H-E-B Going to Open?
People are just idiots and pay zero attention.
I sure hope the parking lot is better configured than the lot at the current HEB. That place is an accident waiting to happen.
in Zapata Found Guilty On All Four Charges
Janet Senatore, either there's been a huge miscarriage of justice here and Zapata has been framed through entrenched corruption, or Zapata, despite being a lawyer, was truly guilty and earned his sentence under the rule of law that is suppose to guide Western societies and preserve the promise of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" that has made this nation preeminent in this world. Letting him go because he had many prominent friends and some status in the community is tantamount to lowering ourselves to the position of the third-world nations that so many have left in waves and droves so that they could resettle here in the States.
You pray for your buddy. I'll pray that justice always prevails unless a person's crimes can be redeemed through compassion, and that petty favoritism or outright corruption are brooked no quarter.
in Now, It's Mayor Brenda Gunter
I disagree with your statement about making a 360° change of course. I would say that San Angelo's leadership is already quite good at making complete 360° turns, often in succession and for extended periods of paid time. I do, however, agree with you that small, straw or plastic cowboy hats fitted with snake bands worn in addition to a bolo tie should become standard garb for the elected leaders of the area.
It wouldn't have happened if lawyers weren't greedy and saw a way to swindle someone out of money.
