Thats methed up..

Kill a senior citizen and not serve a day in jail.

Galveston County justice at its finest

James Lippert

Worth mentioning is the court in which the verdict was rendered, 212th District Court Judge PATRICIA GRADY. According to Galveston County records, this was NOT the 1st time Defendant Nunez was in trouble with Galveston County law enforcement.

Bailey Jones

Wow - good thing she didn't spit on a judge.

Wayne Holt

Well played.

Was it a bench or jury trial. If a bench judgement of guilty of intoxication manslaughter and no time served it is a judicial travesty.

Articles like this -without sufficient information - that leave so much to assumption are also a travesty.

James Lippert

Twas a Jury trial. Defendant Wilnequa Nunez also elected to receive her punishment from the Jury. Seems very light for someone who has frequented Galv Co courts in recent years.

Prosecutors must have been “asleep at the wheel” during the jury selection process. That and their final closing arguments. What a terribly unfortunate outcome in a guilty verdict. The Elected DA really should be looking into how this came out this way and explain it to voters during the next election cycle. Many won’t understand.
