East Texas Man Convicted In Beating Death Set To Be Released

A man who admitted to helping beat an East Texas man with a baseball bat is scheduled to go free in just days.  Juan Carlos Gonzalez Garcia has served half of his assault sentence for beating Marcus Wells of Sulphur Springs back in 2004.  Seven others were arrested in that beating, but the Wells family has just been informed by the state that Garcia will be out on parole by Tuesday.  Wells family and others in Sulphur Springs have protested Garcia's release, and say they are now trying to get help from a congressman, or state representative to keep Garcia in jail.
