APD Chief talks about Nestande verdict

Posted: Updated:

Last week jurors decided the fate of Gabrielle Nestande. She was given probation for 10 years.

The former Capitol aide was charged with killing Courtney Griffin in a hit and run in May of 2011. In the trial Nestande admitted to drinking "parts" of five drinks and getting behind the wheel. But jurors only convicted her of criminally negligent homicide with a deadly weapon and agreed she would not serve time behind bars. When news of the sentence broke much of the community was outraged saying the punishment was not enough.

Joining FOX 7 to talk more about this verdict is Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo.
