Luis Rodriguez Jr., 32, was found guilty of aggravated robbery and assault with a deadly weapon in the December 1990 robbery of a Mexican national working in this country on a green card. Bill Reimer, Comal County District Attorney said.
“What was really significant was how angry Rodriguez got that the victim had so little money,** Reimer said. “Essentially what we argued to the jury was that the amount didn’t matter.**
Reimer said that Rodriguez held a large knife to the victims throat and cut his hand to try to get more money. The victim escaped by fleeing when be went to get more money out of the trunk.
Rodriguez has been to prison twice before and has been associated with the Mexican mafia, Reimer said.
The deadly weapon fine will mean that Rodriguez must serve at least one quarter of the 40 year sentence, Reimer said.
