Texas father found not guilty for fatal shooting of drunk driver who killed his kids


After just three hours of deliberation on Wednesday, a jury acquitted a Texas father who was accused of fatally shooting a drunk driver responsible for the death of his two sons.

local ABC affiliate reported David Barajas had been charged for the death of 20-year-old Jose Banda Jr., stemming from an incident which occurred in December 2012 in Alvin, about 30 miles outside of Houston.

Barajas’ two sons — 12-year-old David Jr. and 11-year-old Caleb — were helping to push the family’s Ford F250 after it ran out of gas. The boys were only about 100 yards from their home when Banda, who had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit, crashed his Chevrolet Malibu into the truck.
