It took a Lubbock jury just 15 minutes to find a Slaton man guilty in connection with a hit-and-run.

Late Tuesday afternoon, jurors convicted Jesse Garcia of failure to stop and render aid. He could face up to five years in prison.

Witnesses testified Garcia hit pedestrian Earl Powell with his car at a Slaton intersection in 2002, and drove away. 72-year-old Powell later died from his injuries.
