ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Gordon House, convicted of vehicular homicide in a fatal Christmas Eve 1992 DWI traffic crash that claimed the lives of a mother and her three daughters, will leave prison next month under conditions that the New Mexico Parole Board will decide today.
House, who became the virtual poster boy for DWI reform in the wake of the fatal accident , eventually was sentenced to 22 years. With credit for good time under then existing law, he will be released in March after serving nearly 11 years at Department of Corrections prisons in Santa Rosa and Grants.
At its hearing, closed to the public, the parole board will hear from the lone survivor, Paul Cravens, and other family members permitted by statute to attend before deciding appropriate conditions for his release.
