A Texas gang member 31 year old Jacob Pauda, was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Monday after being convicted of domestic assault. He was found guilty of beating his pregnant girlfriend and chasing her with a knife in 2016. Pauda, a former member of the prison gang Texas Tango Blast, has a lengthy criminal history. At age 31, he has also been charged with aggravated assault, racing, public intoxication, and possession of a controlled substance. In a series of mugshots spanning back to 2013, Pauda’s appearance seems to grow more sinister leading up to his most recent and serious crime.
Pauda was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting arrest in July of 2013.
In July 2014, he was arrested for public intoxication.
He was arrested in August of 2015 for public intoxication and speeding.

The facial tattoos are connected to his membership in the Texas Tango Blast prison gang, but he told the judge, during his domestic assault case on his girlfriend, that he’s no longer a member of the gang.
Most recently, Pauda was convicted of sexual assault after he beat his pregnant girlfriend and chased her with a knife. Due to his 2003 conviction for aggravated assault, his sentence was bumped up to 15 years.
