PRESS RELEASE

Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office

 

 

Judge Jeffrey McMeans sentenced Frank Huynh to pay a $1,000 fine and spend 10 days in jail after a jury convicted him of Driving While Intoxicated in March.  The 63-year-old Katy man was arrested after a deputy sheriff found him on the shoulder of the Grand Parkway in June of 2016.

 

According to Assistant District Attorney Tristyl McInnis, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Young saw Huynh parked on the shoulder of the Grand Parkway with his reverse lights on just after 3:00 a.m. on June 5, 2016.  Deputy Young viewed the defendant’s arm hanging out of the vehicle’s window and saw vomit on the driver’s side door. Deputy Young called for EMS and a DWI officer when he noticed that the defendant had slurred speech, red glassy eyes, and a strong odor of alcohol on his person. Deputy William Dading arrived on scene and transported the defendant to the parking lot of a nearby Hobby Lobby for further investigation. The defendant admitted to drinking three beers before performing the standardized field sobriety tests. The defendant could not follow instructions for the first test and failed the second and the third tests. The defendant later refused to provide a specimen of his blood or breath to determine his blood alcohol level.

 

Lead prosecutor Tristyl McInnis told the jury:  “This defendant didn’t care about the safety of others or his own, when he got behind the wheel. The safety of the community is in your hands.” Despite the lack of scientific blood alcohol evidence, within an hour the jury found Huynh guilty of Driving While Intoxicated.

 

District Attorney John Healey noted “This is classic case demonstrating that the outward signs of intoxication exhibited by a DWI driver are often times sufficient to demonstrate the guilt of a defendant beyond a reasonable doubt.”

 

Huynh was tried in County Court at Law No. 2.  Driving While Intoxicated in this case is a Class B Misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail and/or a fine up to $2,000.    

 

Assistant District Attorneys Tristyl McInnis and Drew Kwartler prosecuted the case.  Attorney Lonnie Knowles represented the defendant.
