Raised in Texas, Vic Feazell has become a household name to anyone living in the state from the 80's to today. Whether you heard his name on his catchy commercials sporting the "drive laid back" slogan or saw him on the news there is no denying Vic Feazell is a Texas legend.

Law Graduate

By the early 70's Vic had Graduated from Mary Harden Baylor and by 79' had graduated from Baylor School of Law and was practicing law.

One of the Youngest DA's in Texas

He soon had his sights on bigger things. Like becoming the DA of Mclennan County in Waco, Texas. Through a twist of fate the young Vic Feazell won his campaign and became one of the youngest DA's Waco had ever seen. (See the swearing in ceremony) During his 1st term as DA he tried many cases including the Lake Waco Triple Murder cases. In 1984 a jury found David Spence guilty of the murders and sentenced him to the death penalty. Vic is now a vocal advocate against the death penalty.

"Lucas Report"

Then in late 1984 Vic learned of a drifter named Henry Lee Lucas. Lucas claimed to have killed over 300 people across the country and when Lucas confessed to a murder in McLennan County, Feazell became suspicious and wanted the Lucas murders examined more closely. With the help of Attorney General Jim Mattox a large scale investigation was put into place resulting in the famous ''Lucas Report". The report showed Lucas couldn't have commited all the crimes he was admitting to. The report showed Lucas was cashing checks in Florida while at the same time committing a murder in Texas. Due to Vic's diligence, the information gathered still helps law enforcement ensure they get the right guy to this day.
