Bryan Man Admits To Intoxication Manslaughter & College Station Man Sentenced For Threatening To Kill His Girlfriend

A Bryan man has admitted to drunk driving in a crash that killed a Bryan woman. 26 year old Juan Hernandez was sentenced to 15 years after pleading guilty to intoxication manslaughter. In March of last year, Hernandez was going nearly 100 miles per hour on Highway 21 west of the freeway when the SUV he was driving struck a car that was turning into the McDonald’s parking lot. The driver of the car, 23 year old Mayte Gaitan, died at the scene. According to the Brazos County district attorney’s office, Hernandez’s blood alcohol level was about twice the legal limit. The crash occurred 13 months after Hernandez ended probation for a DWI in Robertson County. Hernandez has been in jail since the crash on that charge and on a hold by immigration authorities.

A College Station man convicted by a Brazos County district court jury last October for threatening to kill his girlfriend was sentenced by a judge earlier this month to 26 years. According to the DA’s office, 32 year old Nicholas Ryan Johnson will have to serve at least half the time before becoming eligible for parole. During the punishment hearing, prosecutors brought up Johnson going to prison for one of two prior convictions of assaulting his ex-wife. The attacks happened within hours of each other.
