A judge has sentenced August Quinton Money to 150 days in jail, with 10 years probation.
Money is also required to speak at Mothers Against Drunk Driving Functions along with being a MADD advocate.
The punishment was suggested by the victim's family who say they want to give Money a second chance.
A Bryan teenager who pleaded guilty to killing a Houston resident is scheduled to be sentenced tomorrow.
August Quinton Money was involved in a fatal accident in Houston back in 2010, and this January he pled guilty to killing a 72-year-old Ron Combs. He was arrested at the accident site on I-45 near the Houston-area city of Webster.
In an excerpt of exclusive dash cam video, where Money is being taken to the hospital for a blood draw, he allegedly tries to bribe the police officer.
Money said, “Sir what if I'll make you a deal. I'll show you some people you'd like to know around College Station. If you let me go, I'll provide you intel, I'll provide you anything you want to know."
Money was released on a $30,000 bond in 2010. January 11th of this year, he pled guilty to intoxication manslaughter.
The Harris County District Attorney's office did not comment on the plea deal.
The sentencing is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. at the Harris County District Attorney's office.
