Fired Austin Policer Officer Leonardo Quintana Testifies for Reinstatement

Testimony has begun today in an appeal hearing in which former Austin police officer Leonardo Quintana who fatally shot Nathaniel Sanders II last year, is seeking reinstatement after he was fired for drunken driving in May. Quintana does not dispute that he drove drunk in Williamson County in January, his lawyer said in opening statements, but was instead treated more severely than other officers who commit the same offense.
