DWI conviction overturned because DA fails to appear
Cristina Montoya's DWI conviction is overturned. She crashed her car off an embankment off Interstate 25 near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. The crash killed her niece, Starr Justine Olsen, 19, born 20 January 1994. Because of a prior DWI that was on appeal, she was charged with a more serious offense, but the district attorney failed to appear at the appeal hearing, so the prior DWI was overturned and the fatal crash was therefore downgraded to a less serious offense.
