Augustine Breceda was sentenced Oct. 26 to 216 years in prison for nine felony convictions in his violent 25-day armed robbery spree in Reno. The twice-deported Mexican used the opportunity to plead for mercy, whining to the judge, "I just wish you would find it in your heart to give me a release date where I'll still be able to be with my three children who I miss so much." Actually, this perp is just the sort who should be locked up permanently. He likes to rob little old ladies and carjacked a 72-year-old woman near the church where she volunteered. When police officers found him in the stolen car, he tried to hit pursuing officers and caused several accidents as he sped through traffic at 80 mph. After crashing into a phone pole, Breceda broke into a woman's home, although she was able to escape. When Breceda finally was captured, he identified himself as a cousin who lives in Reno. Augustine Breceda already was a six-time felon in California.
