Cowboys Stadium GM Sentenced In DWI Case



    The Fort Worth Star-Telegramhas reported that Cowboys Stadium general manager Jack Hill has been sentenced to 15 days on work detail, stemming from a June 7 DWI charge.

    The incident occurred following the stadium's inagural concert on the evening of June 6, which featured George Strait, when Hill's SUV collided with an 18 wheeler on Randol Mill road near the venue.

    Responding officers said that the truck was likely at fault in the accident, but became suspicious of Hill when he exhibited peculiar behavior.  

    Hill pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges of driving while intoxicated, and was sentenced to 15 days on work detail under the supervision of Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson. He will also be required to pay a $925 fine.

    The prosecutor in the case, Leticia Hernandez, asked the judge for two years probation for Hill, and 90 days in the Tarrant County Jail. Mark Daniel, who represented Mr. Hill, asked for minimum jail term for the class B misdemeanor, which carries a maximum of 180 days in jail, along with a $2,000 fine.

    “Jack was in the wrong,” Daniel said in the Star Telegram. “He acknowledged that and took responsibility for it. He was treated no better or no worse than anyone else in the same situation.”

    According to Cowboys spokesman Brett Daniels, Hill will remain as the stadium's general manager.
