Seriously, he killed a man and got 10 years probation??????

What is wrong with the judicial powers that be in this country?

Carlos Ponce

In the state of Texas, a conviction for criminally negligent manslaughter can carry serious penalties. For example, a person convicted of this offense may face:

Six months or up to 2 years in state jail

A fine of up to $10,000

Probation and community service

A person convicted of this offense will not be eligible for parole. Additionally, a person who commits criminally negligent homicide while on the job may have difficulty finding employment in a similar field.
