Just an update on the above story. I was a juror in the murder trial of Bryant Jones, who was accused of the murder of Telefario. We found Jones guilty of the charges of Murder while a engaging as a member of an organized crime unit, and guilty of murder. Guilty on the charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon while enagaging as a member of an organized crime unit.

The state of Texas puts the burden of setting the punishment of the defendant on the jurors as well. We are given the parameters of 5 years to 99 years or life, on these class 1 felonies.

Bryant Jones was sentenced to 80 years for the first charge, 60 years for the second charge, and 40 years for the assault charge. He will be eligible for parole in 30 years. The sentences will not be consecutive but will run congruently.

I hope the Mitchell family recieves some semblence of justice and closure from this Trial, and I as a Texan am deeply sorry for their loss.

Thank you for the update, I remember months ago when this happened. I'm sure his family appreciates your work prosecuting the murderer.

I am Tele's younger siser... My siblings are everything. They mean the world to me. Four years later, we still suffer everyday. I hope Bryant does as well. His sentance was not harsh enough. We will never be able to hear Tele's voice again.
