I don't believe that a weeks house arrest and a years probation will solve his drinking problem. He will wind up killing some innocent person/people, and maybe himself.

I realize that Emilio walked away from a prison senctence, but I think he has suffered enough and he will continue to suffer for the rest of his life without any of us crucifying him. I don't drink, but I will not throw stones at him. He's fighting everyday to get well and I feel that he is not only to blame for driving in his condition. He wasn't alone on that bus. If he was that drunk, why didn't someone else drive? He has a problem and I pray he gets help. I miss the old Emilio when he was married to Cindy. Those were the days... I agree he shouldn't be sued, but his band is not making the money that they were accustomed to. It's a sad situation all around. I wish him well. I would love to see him concert someday in Corpus Christi again. Only God knows what will happen to his career and his music.

Emilio was not alone on tha bus. It's true he was not the only one to blame for driving in that under that condition. True someone should have Driving that Bus. Why did'nt the other members get blame also , they were with him. I agree he should'nt be sued.

I agree, he hurt himself and still paying the price. Lord only knows if he will return to normal again. I loved his music and still do. I want him to recover and this time hope he understand what he did to himself, his family and of course his fans. God Bless you Emilio.

Because of him and among other Tejano musicians I became a musician. I was that kid in the audience day dreaming that someday I could do what they did. I personally met Mr. Emilio at our Tejano Dance Hall formerly known as "THE TEXAS BALLROOM in Eagle Pass, TX. God bless Emilio y su familia!!! Dios es muy grande! Emilio will someday come back and all of his fans will be able to enjoy what he is meant to do "MUSIC".

Emilio should come out and get moving around, We are all people and should not judge one another. He is suffering enough. No one should sue anyone. You were all there.

Yeah right, like I would let a friend drive me around while he is drunk!! Hell NO!!!! I don't care if you're my friend or if you're famous or for that fact even President Obama, if you're drunk and you should not be driving you won't, not if I'm around you!!! I rather get in a fight stopping you then let you go kill yourself or God forbid kill an innocent family. So YES everyone in that bus was responsible, EVERYONE!!!! We all have friends, family, or know of someone that has done something stupid but do we just abandon them, NO!! Let's hope for humanity that we are not that insensitive!! If someone is my Bread and Butter why would I not take care of that person. DUH!!!!

Then we all understand life. Emilio's condition well never return to normal. Yes, he made a horrible mistake. However, his band members were all on board that bus. NO ONE took it upon themselves to save themself. YET, court happy.

They are probably not ungrateful. the fool risk their lives for taking a bus that he had no permit/license to drive and/or the dude was drunk. Emilio's music is awesome, but it shouldn't excuse his drunk driving!(period.) And it wasn't the first time he did something like that. You think he would learn.

Looks like another celebrity trying to get away with murder. Only in this case its okay cuz its his life he was trying to get away with. Anyway people should be charged with their crimes. And that person is Emilio. He is a drunk and his family should already know this flaw about him. Emilio should be in jai for what he did! so who gives a shit that he can "sing" that doesnt give him the right to drive drunk and expose other drivers! Luckily he only harmed himself and the other band members!!!!!

Emilio has already paid a tremendous price for his mistake & continues to pay for it everyday. His fellow band members did not step up when they should have so the blame should be on everyone. May the great LORD above continue to be with you always Emilio & Family cause truely only he can judge you. Shoot it! LORD BLESS!
