There's still hope in Texas.
Last year, Jimmy Dean was beaten badly by this dick drip, Bobby Singleton and some other cretin. Bobby and that guy left Jimmy with a broken back, facial disfigurement, no sense of smell and continuous daily pain.
However, in court yesterday, a jury sentenced Bobby 75 years in prison and his sidekick also received time. While the verdict was read, Bobby showed no emotional reaction at all.
But he will soon... In prison.
Okay, enough of my "meanness"... Jimmy was somewhat shocked...
Dean said afterward that he was overwhelmed by the jury's decision. He said he thought there might only be one juror who thought Singleton should get the 60 years prosecutors requested for aggravated robbery.
"I think it shows the jury does understand," Dean said. "It makes the next two people who go into any neighborhood, and pick out anyone, think twice."
He also said the verdict gives him "faith in people" and said the days are gone when criminals received a lesser sentence because the victim is gay.
"This sets a precedence for anything like this that happens," Dean said. "Maybe this will set a standard for anybody, no matter what your sexual orientation is, a violent crime is a violent crime."
That's so true, Jimmy.
