Getting away with blatantly murdering someone sounds like something that would’ve happened in the Wild West or maybe in the middle east somewhere, But not in the U.S. in 2013. Not even in Texas.

A Bexar County, Texas man was just acquitted of murder charges for killing a prostitute because he paid her and she didn’t have sex with him. Somehow, under Texas law, it was legal for him to kill her..

Back in 2009 on Christmas Eve, 30-year-old Ezekiel Gilbert contacted 23-year-old escort Lenora Ivie Frago on Craigslist. Frago went to Gilbert’s house where she accepted a $150 payment, but did not have sex with Gilbert.

He tried to get the money back and when she refused, he shot her. Frago was left paralyzed and a few months later died.

So here’s how he got away with it. Under Texas law, it’s legal to, “use deadly force to recover property during a nighttime theft.”  So, because she took the money without having sex, it essentially made it legal for him to shoot her.

Gilbert was facing life in prison if he’d been found guilty. The prosecutors argued that the deadly force law was intended for law-abiding citizens, not people trying to force prostitutes to have sex with them.
