TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — The suspect in the assault of two men at a Travis County strip club in September 2020 was sentenced to two years in prison.

Court records show Nicholas Galvan, 34, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault last month. He’d previously been arrested in 2020 by the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force in Chicago.

One of the men involved, Lawrence Demarcus Jones, died in the incident at the Bare Cabaret club on Reservoir Court near Highway 290. According to the arrest affidavit, Jones received a skull fracture and brain bleeding as a result of the altercation. Autopsy results show he died as a result.

In a statement on Monday, Galvan’s attorney Alejandro Martinez said: “Considering the facts and circumstances of the case as well as the amount of jail credit my client has already accrued, accepting the two year deal made sense at that time.”
