What started as two San Antonio neighbors throwing eggs at each other’s apartments ended with the death of an innocent man stabbed in the back.
32-year-old Juan Antonio Rivera has entered a guilty plea to murder after he allegedly stabbed Michael Washington, 31, in the back with a kitchen knife.
Sadly, Washington wasn’t even part of the original egging incident.
Sometime after the neighbors had egged each others’ apartments, Washington was escorting one of the participants home when he was attacked.
By entering the plea, Rivera reached an agreement in which he will reportedly not receive a sentence of greater than 33 years in prison.
Defense attorney Wayne Hampton said that he would have argued that Rivera feared for his life when one of his neighbors threatened to have him killed over the egging incident.
In most areas, egging is technically a criminal offense.
