A former Texas millionaire is standing trial for DUI manslaughter. The prosecution claims that in 2010, while allegedly driving drunk, he ran a stop sign and smashed into another car, killing the driver.
The allegedly drunk driver was tried and convicted in 2012 and initially received a sentence of 16 years in prison. His attorneys had the first conviction overturned due to improper behavior by a juror; the retrial is in progress now. The trial is hampered by the fact that the cars involved were released to the insurance companies and sold after the first conviction.
