Woman convicted of falsifying breathalyzer records

Nearly 1,000 DWI convictions in Harris County could be re-tried, all thanks to one person's crime. A former Department of Public Safety contractor, Deetrice Wallace, was convicted on Friday for faking inspection records of DPS breathalyzers. Wallace was originally contracted to make sure the breath test machines were working properly.

Now, prosecutors say about 1,000 drivers can petition for re-trials without the breath test evidence included.
