Clayton Garzon is expected to get a five year prison sentence for the brutal gay bashing of Mikey Partida as he left his birthday party in Davis, California earlier this year, News10 reports:
A man charged with beating a gay Davis man last March entered a no contest plea to felony battery with serious bodily injury with a hate crime enhancement in Yolo Superior Court Tuesday.
In exchange for the plea and a five-year prison sentence, the Yolo County District Attorney's Office dropped felony assault charges against Clayton Garzon.
Garzon beat 32-year-old Partida until he was unconscious while repeatedly yelling the word "faggot", and then "knocked on the door of the home to brag about what he had done," according to his cousin. Garzon had harassed Partida before the attack took place and Partida said he tried to ignore it but the suspect attacked him after he forgot his keys and had to go back to the house.
