Angry Lufkin man gets probation for intoxication manslaughter of his wife for a mc accident

http://www.kltv.com/story/16341659/l...-death-of-wife

Wonder why not jail? I've heard of people doing 10 years for this in a car/SUV.

Quote:
Huerta, was driving a 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle, with his wife riding on the seat behind him. Police said he lost control and entered a landscaped median, striking some shrubbery before flipping the motorcycle.

Maria was transported to Memorial Hospital where she died.

The arrest affidavit stated around midnight, the couple had left a Lufkin nightclub and were headed home when they crashed.

Neither were wearing a helmet at the time.

Officers at the scene said Huerta smelled of alcohol. He was transported to the hospital for injuries sustained in the wreck, and he willingly provided a blood sample. Results showed he had a blood-alcohol level of .18.

Not sure that I disagree. She chose to get on with him. She was his wife.

She chose to not wear the helmet.

She made those choices for herself.

He will suffer for the rest of his life knowing what he did.


When someone in an SUV hits you while driving drunk, you did not choose any of that.

A friend of mine was driving his truck with his best friend (they had all been drinking), and he hit a freeway column. His friend died that night and he got ten years.

If you kill somebody because you were driving drunk, you should get more than probation, regardless of the six months you spent in jail.

Even though they CHOSE to not wear helmets- that's their right. I don't condemn them for that. You're saying she CHOSE to get on that bike; they had both been drinking (per the article), and when you're drinking you're inhibitions are very much decreased. I wonder if she would have gotten on if she were sober?

your friend should have hired a better lawyer?

Well - it was 20 years ago (that he got out)... maybe the rules have changed.

If this guy had killed anybody else, or another biker, you guys would want him to hang... I don't get your double standards.

Maybe she drove him to drink. Anyone who rides a bike to a nightclub at night and drinks gets what they deserve.

They rode there on the bike.

I am speculating, but would be willing to bet they had plans of drinking that night. Those plans were likely made while sober, and this was probably not the first time.

Don't know for sure...


Also, choosing to drink should also include the knowledge that your inhibitions will be lowered. You choose to take that risk as well when you drink.


He ought to get prison for driving drunk, I at least agree there. We just have differing reasons why this man should be in prison. I have no respect for those who drive/ride drunk.

You get hit by a drunk driver you had no part in what they did.

This lady was WELL involved in what her husband was doing. She knew the score when she got on that bike with him.

If I was drunk and a passenger in a car with a good friend of mine and he wrecked and killed me, I sure as wouldn't want him to get in any more trouble than was necessary (more than like a regular DWI - and I wouldn't even want him to get that).

I agree with this. More-so than because they both drank and both were drunk. Good answer. This is exactly what I was thinking, too.

AND somebody died. Maybe wife was intimidated and too scared to not do what she's told, much like a child. So many women fit this category... We don't know their story.

I agree completely... He will have to live knowingly he killed his wife.
Now i do agree he should be in prison, but this would be tough to deal with if i kille dmy wife knowing i/we were going out, drinking, riding... I wouldnt want that on my back for sure.

As some others have said, unless there are more specifics that I didn't read such as him somehow coaxing her on the bike without her knowledge of his drinking she should be held just as responsible as him. I guarantee she was aware of the dangers of riding a motorcycle, let alone after the operator had been drinking. Now, if they were fighting and he forced her to get on with him then I'd understand them charging him. Otherwise, I think he's paid enough of a price already and will continue to pay the rest of his life without any help from the courts.

PS: He should receive a DWI and possibly reckless endangerment (IMO)
