He nearly killed a Lubbock girl in 2001 when he smashed his truck into a house while drunk, and now 27-year-old Travis Gilpin is back behind bars for violating probation.
Wednesday, a Lubbock judge sentenced Gilpin, who now lives in Austin, to 30 days in the Lubbock County Jail after he received several alcohol-related violations, including a second DWI.
In 2003, the former Texas Tech student pleaded guilty to intoxication assault for this crash in February 2001.
Gilpin, who was 20 at the time, left a fraternity party with an alcohol level twice the legal limit and crashed into a house, pinning 10-year-old Siera Hanson in her bed. Hanson suffered broken ribs, a collapsed lung and a torn spleen.
Gilpin will remain on probation for the next five years. He will also spend one weekend a month behind bars for the next two years.
