Punishment Given to 5th Defendant in Mothers Day 2010 MurderFeatured Stories, News Friday, October 12th, 2012
Punishment was given to the last of five Bryan gang members involved in the Mothers Day 2010 murder of a Bryan teenager.
22 year old Jose Castillo will serve 30 years following the conviction for organized criminal activity that led to the death of Christopher Hutchson and injuries sustained by a second victim.
Because Castillo had no prior felony convictions, the Brazos County District Court jury had sentencing options ranging from probation to 99 years in prison.
Brazos County District Attorney-Elect Jarvis Parsons, the lead prosecutor in the trial, says Castillo must serve at least half the time before he becomes eligible for parole.
The early morning of May 9th, 2010, police discovered the body of the 17 year old Hutchson in the backyard of a home in the 300 block of West 17th. Before Hutchson was shot, investigators were told Hutchson and a second young man were beat up by gang members.
Four others previously entered plea agreements. Johnathan Orta was convicted of Hutchson’s murder. Pleading guilty to engaging in organized criminal activity were Joey Reyes, Jacob Hernandez, and Manuel Guzman.
