A man accused of a hate crime in the beating of a gay Davis man last year was sentenced Friday in Yolo Superior Court.
Under a plea agreement, Clayton Garzon received a seven years and four months split sentence for the March 10, 2013, attack on Lawrence “Mikey” Partida outside an I Street home in Davis.
Garzon pleaded no contest to felony assault likely to produce great bodily injury, felony hate crime, misdemeanor battery with serious bodily injury and an out on bail enhancement.
With the split sentence, per the state’s prison realignment legislation, Garzon will serve a 5-year- prison sentence in Yolo County Jail, and will be on mandatory supervision for two years and four months.
He also will pay restitution to the victim, with the amount to be determined at a later date, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
