Convicted Murderer of TX Tow Truck Driver Avoids Prison

I originally posted the story on this back in October. Click here to read it.
Here's the update from

HOUSTON - A former Houston firefighter will not spend time in prison for violating his probation in the murder of a tow truck driver.

During a hearing Wednesday, a judge denied a motion to revoke Barry Crawford's probation.

Police say Crawford stopped making restitution payments and performing community service, both requirements of his probation for shooting and killing Steven Hardin in 1998.

Hardin's family says they are extremely disappointed his probation was not revoked.

According to the district attorney's office, Crawford will finish out his probation, which ends in June.

He must also pay back $15,000 he owes in restitution to the victim's families.
