Probation in beheaded bird case
LAS VEGAS- A law school graduate still faces four years probation and monthly work at an animal shelter for beheading an exotic bird at the Flamingo Resort in Las Vegas.
Justine Alexander Teixeira apologized to the state of Nevada and to people affected by his drunken tirade two years ago.
He just completed a 190-day prison boot camp instead of going behind bars.
His lawyer told the judge Teixeira's conviction would haunt the man for the rest of his life.
While he was in boot camp, Teixeira learned that he had passed the California bar exam.
It's not known if he can practice law since he's a convicted felon.
