Michael Graham of Crosby was shot once, had initials carved into the back of his head and jumped out of second floor window to escape his captors who tortured him in an apparent methamphetamine fueled frenzy in 2016.

That's what prosecutors said Thursday in announcing the conviction of 50-year-old Billy Shawn Chauncey also of Crosby, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

"This case would have been a murder case if the defendant had not managed to break loose from captivity," prosecutor Daniel Simons said in a press release issued by the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors said Chauncey was the ringleader who, with three other people who regularly used crystal meth, stripped, bound, burned, shot and stabbed Graham on January 4, 2016.

They claimed Graham owed them money.

Graham testified that he was tied at the wrists and ankles with electrical tape, and a chemical cleaner was poured on his head causing severe burns.

 One attacker used a knife to carve his initials into the back of Graham's skull.

Graham broke free as the attackers discussed unleashing a pit-bull on him, prosecutors said. He jumped through a second floor window and ran away. He was shot in the back, but managed to reach the home of a neighbor who called police.

Graham, whose past includes drug use and convictions for theft, said he has been clean of drugs since the attack and has been trying to improve his life, Simons said.

"He got a job last week and was in tears when I told him the jury convicted the man who orchestrated the fourth-degree burns and gunshot wound that he will live with for the rest of his life," Simons said.

Chauncey was convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon during a four-day trial in the 180th District Court.

He and another man have been convicted and sentenced to prison. A third pleaded guilty and an a fourth still faces trial for her role.
