Man Gets 50 Years For Biting Officer's Finger

A 19 year old gang member Jaime Juarez, convicted of assaulting a Tyler Police Officer, was sentenced to fifty years for biting an officer's finger as he tried to escape.

It took the jury only five minutes to convict Juarez, finding that his mouth and teeth were capable of causing death or serious bodily injury. Juarez was also fined $5,000 and will be eligible for parole after 25 years.
