Press Release

 

           

            Carlos Amescua was sentenced to 30 years in prison on November 28, 2018 in an agreement with prosecutors after pleading guilty to Intoxication Manslaughter and 20 years on each of three counts of Intoxication Assault.  The 36-year-old Rosenberg man was indicted for killing a teenager and seriously injuring three others after running a red light while intoxicated last year.

 

According to the Assistant District Attorney Thomas Pfeiffer, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Deputy Ricky Rodriguez was traveling southbound on State Highway 6 at 2:30 a.m. on March 19, 2017.  As he approached the intersection of Hwy. 6 and Vicksburg Boulevard, he witnessed a vehicle collision after a white SUV disregarded a red light.  The suspect driver was identified as Carlos Amescua. 

 

The impact of the collision killed 19-year-old Cayle Symone Simple and badly injured three others. 

 

Amescua’s blood alcohol content was later determined to be .189 – over twice the legal limit in Texas.  Amescua has prior alcohol-related convictions for driving while intoxicated and public intoxication.

 

Assistant District Attorney Thomas Pfeiffer prosecuted the case.  Pfeiffer stated, “As the holidays approach, it is my hope that people will consider this tragic case before deciding to drive while intoxicated.  I think the sentence speaks for itself.  Do not drive while intoxicated in Fort Bend County.”

 

Amescua was prosecuted in the 458th District Court.  Because Amescua has a prior felony conviction for assaulting a public servant, the second-degree felony Intoxication Manslaughter was enhanced to the first-degree punishment range of 5-99 years or life in prison and a fine up to $10,000.  The third-degree felony Intoxication Assault in this case was also enhanced to a range of 2-20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.  Because the court ruled that the defendant’s car was a deadly weapon, he must serve at least one-half of his sentences before he is eligible for parole.
