"Don't Whiz on the Alamo": Texas Man Could Get 18 Months

Frank Heinz

An El Paso man could get up to 18 months in jail for urinating on the Alamo.

An El Paso man faces up to 1½ years in state jail after pleading guilty to urinating on the Alamo.

Daniel Athens pleaded guilty Tuesday in state district court in San Antonio to felony criminal mischief. In a statement, Bexar County District Attorney Susan Reed says Athens reached a plea deal that includes paying restitution of $4,000 to repair damage to the former mission's limestone facade.

Athens, who's 23, was arrested April 14, 2012, after he was found urinating on a front wall of the shrine. He initially was charged with misdemeanor public intoxication and public urination, but the district attorney's office said it might pursue the state-jail felony charge.
