About the San Antonio DWI Accident

  • Christina Renee Flores, 43, was killed in 2011 when Theissen collided with her vehicle while driving the wrong way along an interstate.
  • According to police, Theissen’s blood alcohol content was at .18 when a blood sample was taken three hours after the crash.
  • This level is more than twice the legal limit.
  • Theissen pleaded guilty to charges of intoxication manslaughter last week.

Jury Sentences Drunk Driver to 13 Years

  • It took the San Antonio jury less than two hours of deliberation to decided Theissen’s sentence.
  • As jurors found that Theissen used his car as a deadly weapon, he will not be eligible for parole until he has served at least half of his sentence.
  • The defense attempted to declare a mistrial when Flores’ 14 year-old son, Christian Jacob Flores, approached Theissen in the court room yelling, but the judge denied the motion.
  • Flores’ oldest daughter, Priscilla Flores, stated that she forgave Theissen after he and his mother wrote a letter of apology to her for the death of her mother.
