A jury sentenced Ruben Cuellar Romo to six years in prison. Romo pleaded guilty yesterday to stabbing Joshua Chapa three times. Romo's daughter told her father that someone raped her at a party. She then went to Wunsche High School and pointed out Chapa as a witness to the attack.
The daughter later admitted she made up the whole story. Chapa thinks Romo should have received a longer sentence.
"I'm relieved that it's over. I'm kind of not too happy about what happened," Chapa said. "I personally would have gave him more, but it happens."
Romo will get credit for the seven months he has already served in jail
