Jury decides on life in prison in trial of Joshua Glaze
HARDIN COUNTY - After deliberating for about two and a half hours, a Hardin County jury decided on life in prison Wednesday afternoon in the trial of Joshua Glaze.
Prosecutors said Joshua Glaze and his cousin Curtis were involved in the shooting death of 18- year-old Brian Drake Jr. in November of 2012. Drake was a Lamar University freshman.
A jury already convicted Curtis of murder and a judge sentenced him to life.
Hardin County District Attorney David Sheffield said Joshua Glaze and Curtis would have to serve a minimum of 30 years before being considered for parole.
"We're very pleased with the jury's verdict," Sheffield said. "I think the jury did a great job in sending a message and rejecting this type of behavior."
When asked about how Brian Drake Jr.'s parents reacted, Sheffield said they were pleased with the sentence.
