Store Cashier Accused of Selling Alcohol to Minor Before Wreck
KWTX reported a story that was broken by The Associated Press on Monday morning. A convenience store clerk is under fire after selling alcohol to a minor, which may have led to the death of two of the minor's classmates in a wreck.
The incident occurred in the Houston-area suburb of Humble, and the clerk charged with selling to the minor has been arrested. Harris County criminal records show that Gumaro Munoz Campos, 29 was arrested Sunday on the misdemeanor charge of selling alcohol to the minor.
Prosecutors over the case believe that 17-year-old Jaggar Smith drank a bottle of wine before she was involved in a car wreck. The wreck led to the deaths of two 16-year-old girls with her in the car - Salma Gomez and Chloe Robison. All three of the teenagers attended Humble Atascocita.
Smith has been charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter for being the driver of the vehicle which led to Gomez and Robison's deaths. The spokesmen for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) Chris Porter said, "Campos is accused of selling alcohol to Smith before the wreck." Also, Campo didn't have an attorney listed in the court document, or a phone number publicly listed either.
