Angel Alberto Cruz Perez is charged with three felony counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence while intoxicated, driving under the influence causing bodily injury and hit-and-run with permanent injury or death. He is also charged with a misdemeanor count of driving without a license. These charges stem from an incident last week in which Perez drank 24 bottles of beer at a restaurant with a friend before driving home. While driving, Perez hit a mother who was holding her one-year-old daughter and holding the hand of her two year-old-son. The two-year-old was killed and Perez was arrested. If he is convicted of all of his charges, he faces sixteen years in prison.
