Random Case Of The Day


That guy received 20 years this morning out of Williamson County under facts which seem unusual. It looks like the case got a ton of coverage in the Austin area:

A jury convicted Yazdi in October of murder for the death of 23-year-old Recio in 2012. Recio crashed his car on Avery Ranch Boulevard and fled from the scene about 3 a.m. Feb. 3, 2012 in order to avoid being charged with driving while intoxicated, prosecutors have said.

Recio ended up in Yazdi’s front yard and Yazdi came outside and shot him three times as Recio was climbing over a fence to get away from Yazdi, prosecutors said. Recio died on the sidewalk outside Yazdi’s home on Staked Plains Drive.
