On Aug. 14, a 23-year-old Texas man who was convicted for stalking a teenage girl received a prison sentence of 20 years. According to the report, the man, who was asked to stop the stalking by the girl's father, shot the father three times.
During the trial, prosecutors claimed that the man was extremely obsessed with the girl and had tattooed her name at least 11 times on his body. The man, who testified on his behalf, claimed that his judgment was impaired because he was high on a number of drugs that included heroin, Xanax and PCP, among others. He was found guilty on charges of stalking and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
