Chad Martin Jurjaks, "Fucking Mexicans!" Beater, Gets Nearly 3 Years in Prison

Thumbnail image for Chad-Martin-Jurjaks_200.jpg
One wonders if Chad Martin Jurjaks believes it was worth it: two years and eight months in state prison for yelling "Fucking Mexicans" at a 42-year-old Latino man and his 26-year-old nephew before punching them outside a 7-Eleven in Costa Mesa last March. The Caucasian brawler is just lucky he did not get what prosecutors recommended for the unprovoked attack: four years behind bars.

Deputy District Attorney Andrew Katz argued for that sentence because of the violent nature of the attack and Jurjak's violent past. Jurjaks no doubt received the lighter sentence because he copped last month to two felony counts of hate crime battery causing injury. With a sentencing enhancement prosecutors originally filed alleging a prior strike conviction for criminal threats in 2006, Jurjaks was looking at up to seven years and four months in a state prison cell.

He was drunk around 10:30 p.m. March 15, 2011, when he approached four family members at the convenience store and yelled, "Fucking Mexicans!" Before they could respond, Jurjaks beat the head of the 42-year-old three times, then did the same once to his nephew while still yammering, "Fucking Mexicans!" He eventually walked away, Costa Mesa cops were called, and Jurjaks was arrested near the store.

The younger victim submitted a statement to the judge at sentencing today that he remains in therapy and is still afraid to go outside because the Costa Mesa man beat on him for no reason other than his ethnicity. Too bad the judge can't reduce that sentence in hell as well.

It's very strange how one sided the "assault" allegedly was. After checking related stories, I can find nothing about objective witnesses. Is it possible that the beaners were the only ones?

There are usually two sides to these things, but no matter.  Currently, white folks are forced to plead out in order to avoid max "hate crime" penalties.

Wow.  What a massively stupid thing to do.  This knucklehead is a real imbecile.  But then again, he's typical of many in jail: stupid with bad impulse control and violent tendencies.  Anything he gets in life he brings on himself.  Enjoy your wasted life in prison nitwit.

I'm not taking sides, but I often wonder why violence against women doesn't qualify as "hate crimes"...

You know, I understand when teaching the English language to others, it often helps them acclimate by teaching them the cuss words. That could have been the case here...

He's gonna be REALLY pissed off when he finds out how many new Mexican "roomates" he's about to have!

 This guy has a LONG history of criminal behavior. Regardless of the reason, it was only a matter of time before he had to serve an extended sentence.

Any attack on him would in turn be a 'hate crime'. I'd imagine he'll get support from the real skins, though. That's what they are there for.

And they'll know who he is. He'll be lucky if it makes it to three years.

I have no problem with three years for a violent assault, esp. for a repeat offender.However, hate crime laws are bullshit. They are unevenly applied, and are on the face of it unjust. Let's say a guy is beaten because he is wearing Giants gear at a Dodgers game. The attack is just as irrational, just as driven by tribalism. Yet no 'hate crime' charges attach. 

So call 'hate crime' prosecutions are pure politics.

I might be wrong here, but I don't think he was thrown behind bars for what he said. Freedom to beat the innocent isn't exactly covered by our Bill of Rights.

Hey Mitch... lets just say I had a conversation not to long ago with the lead Detective on the Stowe case and they aren't gonna need to attach hate crimes.  They are both facing multiples and Louis Sanchez is looking at a third strike. (Shocked I know)

Hate crimes are bullshit only if you're the one going to jail for them.

Dude, today I'm being offered condos in midtown Miami (where all the best porn is from nowadays) and treatment at the Pompano beach pain management clinic. Get on the advertising staff, capullo.

Mitchie only wants hate crimes when his beloved Aryans are the victims and no one else—pathetic loser.
