Garzon gets 5 years for no-contest plea in attack on gay Davis man

Clayton Garzon, facing assault and hate crime allegations connected to a beating of a gay Davis man, pleaded no contest Tuesday to battery with serious bodily injury with a hate crime enhancement.

In a plea deal made public in Yolo Superior Court, Garzon will receive a five-year prison sentence for the felony.

Garzon will be taken into custody when he is sentenced at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 30. He will serve his prison sentence in Yolo County Jail.

Garzon faced two other felony assault charges in the attack outside the I Street home in Davis where Lawrence "Mikey" Partida had just celebrated his 33rd birthday. Those charges were dismissed.

Partida was severely beaten and hospitalized in the attack. The prosecution accused Garzon of using anti-gay slurs in the attack.

"The district attorney's office is very pleased with the resolution," said Jonathan Raven, Yolo County chief deputy district attorney. "We got what was important: a felony, showing the seriousness of the beating. We got the hate crime enhancement, and we got a prison sentence."
