Life sentence for intoxication manslaughter case

An East Texas man is sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of manslaughter. 55 year old Steven Cole of Louisiana, was sentenced for running a red light and killing a Kilgore man back in 2011. Police say Cole was high on meth at the time of the accident, and was driving over 110 miles per hour.  Cole, was serving parole on previous convictions in Louisiana, for meth and child porn possession, when the crash happened. His previous felonies in Louisiana boosted Cole's sentence to life behind bars.
