He who talks walks (or at least gets a lighter sentence)

Thanking him for his co-operation.

Cooperative defendant draws 15-year term
By Craig Kapitan - Express-News

A San Antonio man whose testimony at his two co-defendants' murder trials helped prosecutors obtain 144 years in combined sentences received his own punishment Monday.

Dominque Lenzy, 25, was ordered by state District Judge Juanita Vasquez-Gardner to serve 15 years in prison for a reduced charge of aggravated assault connected to the July 2009 shooting death of Jimmy Arizah Wilson, 33. He was killed outside a Northeast Side apartment complex.

It was the maximum sentence allowable under a plea agreement reached with prosecutors. Lenzy asked the judge for deferred adjudication probation.
