Prosecutors received permission from the Dallas County court to use Yaqub’s previous offenses in the murder trial. His prior offenses included:

Aggravated assault.
Unlawful carrying of a firearm.
Possession of a controlled substance.

Hickmon’s wife, Kenyetta, addressed Yaqub after the sentencing.

“I’ll never be healed. I still ask myself every day, ‘Why?’ My kids say, ‘Why, mama? Why?’ I have no answers. Why would someone take a life from kids?”
Hickmon was shot several times after a fight between competing coaching staff. The violence erupted following a disputed referee’s call during a football scrimmage at Lancaster Community Park between two nine-year-old teams—the Dragon Elite Academy and the North Dallas United Bobcats.

Video footage, as well as eyewitness testimony, implicated Yaqub in the killing.
