A San Antonio man was found guilty and sentenced to 50 years in prison for murder and other felony charges.
Greg Delgado, 36, is charged with the Feb. 21, 2020, shooting death of Luis Guerrero. Guerrero was driving a truck when he was shot and crashed into a utility pole on the 200 block of Darby. Evidence showed Delgado ran from the scene with a rifle. When police saw him, Delgado exchanged gunfire with officers before he ran into the neighborhood. He was eventually caught in a backyard. Neither Delgado nor the officers were hurt.
This morning, Delgado accepted a plea bargain that called for him to serve 50 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Institutional Division. Specifically, he pled to murder with a deadly weapon; attempted capital murder of a police officer; two charges of aggravated assault against a public servant; possession of a controlled substance penalty group one, 4-200 grams; and deadly weapon in a penal institution. Delgado also pled true to a repeat offender enhancement. Judge Velia Meza followed the plea agreement and sentenced Delgado to 50 years on each case. The sentences will run concurrently.
“This defendant has shown he has no respect for the law. Even while he has been in jail awaiting the resolution of the charges from this one event, this defendant has shown he continues to be a threat to law enforcement and others by repeatedly being found with weapons in the jail. Our community is safer with this defendant behind bars,” said District Attorney Joe Gonzales.
Assistant District Attorney Gretchen Flader of the Criminal Trial Division prosecuted this case in the 226th District Court. The San Antonio Police Department investigated the case.
Delgado must serve at least half of the sentence before he can be considered for parole. Information on parole and release statistics may be found online here.
