RODRIGUEZ Rodriquez received 15 years for each count, however, each sentence will run concurrently. Prosecutors had abandoned four additional counts, which included aggravated sexual as- sault of a child, court officials say. In an affidavit used to secure an arrest warrant, Rodriguez admitted to authorities that he had inappropriately touched a 16-year-old family member numerous times since she was 10 or 11-years old. The victim came forward in December 2009 after her family spent the Thanksgiving holiday at Rodriguez's home in San Mar- cos.

Rodriquez also had threatened the victim, saying that he would get mad at her if she told anyone. As part of his punishment, Rodriquez will also have to register as a sex offender once he is released from prison.

Buda police have charged the car's driver with deadly conduct. Road rage leads to deadly conduct charge in Buda BY SEAN KIMMONS A deadly conduct charge has been filed on the driver of a car who police say intention- ally collided with a motorcycle in a construction zone along Interstate 35 in Buda. An arrest warrant for Jacob Robert Saucedo, 19, of Kyle, was issued Wednesday af- ter Buda police charged him with the Class A misdemean- or following the incident. On Feb. 17 at about 6:30 p.m., Saucedo was driving a Plymouth Neon northbound along Interstate 35 between exits 218 and 219 when he un- safely changed lanes, cutting off a Harley Davidson motor- cycle ridden by Kyle resident Harold Kent Beam, according to an affidavit used to secure an arrest warrant. Beam, 47, stated that he pointed to himself and mouthed to Saucedo, "Did you see me?" Saucedo said that he believed Beam gave him the middle finger. The motorcycle changed lanes to pass the car but Saucedo swerved into the lane and slammed his brakes, caus- ing the motorcycle to hit the rear of his car, said the affi- davit written by Buda police officer Patrick Cheatham. After the collision, the motorcycle tipped on its side and slid across all three lanes, striking a retaining wall along the outside lane. When police arrived, Beam was resting on the retaining wall with injuries including a broken bone protruding from his right leg The affidavit also says that witnesses saw Saucedo's car change lanes and brake hard. Beam was transported to Brackenridge Hospital in Austin where his condition was unknown.
