Louis Nieves made a horrible and fatal decision last year, and now it will cost him 20 years in prison. He was sentenced by a Fort Worth jury yesterday for his intoxication manslaughter conviction resulting from a mach 2011 truck accident that took the life of Alejandro Raya. Mr. Nieves admitted to drinking 10 beers before getting behind the wheel of his truck. He then entered Interstate 30 heading the wrong way and collided with a tanker truck driven by Mr. Raya. Mr. Nieves’ decision to drink and drive took one life and left three children without a father.
