The man accused in DWI death of a Harris County Sheriff's deputy is being held without bond.
The crash that killed Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Dwayne Polk was the second DWI incident for Andres Munos-Munos. In June, of last year Munos-Munos was arrested for DWI and unlawful possession of a weapon, he was deported in July.
Currently Munos-Munos is being held without bond following a court appearance Sunday night. He is charged with intoxication manslaughter, a second-degree felony that could carry a 20 to 30 year sentence.
KTRH's legal expert Chris Tritico says he doesn't think in this case, that increasing the penalties for intoxication manslaughter would be a deterrant, "you can't charge him with murder because of the intent aspect of the case."
Andres Munos-Munos ran a red light early Saturday morning and slammed into Sergeant Dwayne Polk who was on his way home from an off-duty job. Polk was a 16-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff's Department.
