Odessa Man Sentenced to Four Years Behind Bars After Pleading Guilty to Manslaughter Charges

Staff Report

ODESSA - A young Odessa man will spend 1,400 days in prison.

All for one night, he'll probably always regret.

This week, 22-year-old George Barriga pled guilty to manslaughter after he crashed into and killed a woman last summer.

He was given four years in prison as part of a plea deal.

Police say last July, Barriga crashed into a PT Cruiser which caused the cruiser to spin out into the intersection.

Both vehicles then hit a truck. 

44-year-old Carmen Hernandez died at the scene.

Authorities say Barriga wasn't controlling his speed.
