Manslaughter charge reduced to misdemeanor... How so?

To the family of the late Antonio Nuncio, injured granddaughter and Bee County: I was so sad to read in a Wednesday, May 9, article in the Beeville Bee-Picayune that, in Bee County, you can get away with murder if you have a family member in law enforcement, ’cause that’s what we have here – the article speaks for itself.

Question: Are these the kind of judges we want in our community? Knowing and looking at the facts – that this person had broken the law before and a short time after this uncalled for accident – we all know, ladies and gentlemen, if it was the other way around, someone would be going to prison.

Question: How can an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge get dropped to a misdemeanor and two-year probation when he had two more run-ins with the law after this accident and is still allowed to “race” the streets. If this is what we call justice, then I strongly hope that the Nuncio family is pursuing a wrongful death suit. It will never bring back the husband, father, brother, uncle or friend that his family has lost, but maybe they can get some kind of closure.
