Callie Long Found Guilty of Intoxication Manslaughter

Lubbock Sheriff's Office Lubbock Sheriff's Office

After almost 14 hours of deliberation, a Lubbock Jury found Callie Long guilty of intoxication manslaughter in the death of bicyclist Brett Walrath.

Walrath died several months after being hit on South Loop 289 in August 2003. Police say Long was legally drunk the night she hit Walrath and fled the scene. She was arrested several blocks away.

Of the four charges against her, intoxication manslaughter was the charge that carried the steepest penalty. Other charges included intoxication assault, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and failure to stop and render aid.

The penalty phase will begin following a short recess.
