San Antonio Police Officer found guilty on DWI charge
A 34-year-old former San Antonio police officer has been convicted on a charge of DWI.
It took a six-member jury nine hours to reach its verdict. Winder Morales was arrested in 2009 after crashing his car.
His blood-alcohol level was .08, right at the legal limit.
Morales face up to two years in jail or up to two years probation. A judge will sentence Morales in six weeks after a pre-sentencing investigation.
The Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education has an open investigation on Morales. He could lose his license to serve as a peace officer in the state of Texas.
