Warmer-than-normal afternoons are the rule Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 80s to near 90! Rain holding off until the middle of next week.
CORPUS CHRISTI (May 2, 2014) A jury in Corpus Christi has sentenced a South Texas man with eight driving while intoxicated convictions to 70 years in prison in his latest DWI case.
Richard Vollick, 58, was also fined $100,000.
The most recent charge stems from an accident in December 2013 in which investigators said Vollick’s vehicle crashed as he exited the Harbor Ferry.
Another driver and a ferry worker watched as Vollick's vehicle hit some metal sign posts.
The vehicle’s gas tank was punctured in the crash.
The two witnesses went to help and found Vollick smoking a cigarette in a puddle of gasoline.
Vollick has DWI convictions in Nueces, Aransas and San Patricio counties.
