In February 2007, Amit Livingston confessed to and was convicted in the Cameron County courtroom in Brownsville, TX of murdering Hermila Hernandez and sentenced to 23 years in prison. However, Judge Abel Limas, in an act of sheer and utter stupidity, allowed Livingston 60 days as a free man to "get his affairs in order."
Not surprisingly, Livingston has disappeared into thin air - a killer on the loose - despite being featured on "America's Most Wanted" TV show . And the blithering idiot Limas is still a judge.
