A teen, who confessed to hitting a man with her car and leaving him for dead, is out of jail.
The victim TMs family is outraged and demanding justice for their 21-year-old son Adrian Trevino.
Jesusa and Manuel Trevino still can TMt get the closure they are looking for.
Adrian was killed off Business 77 and F.M. 490 just south of Raymondville when he was walking home.
"Our family is not complete without him and that TMs what she took from us, Manuel said. She broke our family to pieces.
Adrian TMs body laid on the side of the road for two days until troopers were advised of the deadly hit and run.
The person accused, 18-year-old Rubi Alyssa Barrios, was arrested but didn TMt stay for long.
According to the affidavit taken three days after the crash, Barrios admitted she hit and killed Trevino before fleeing the scene.
Nearly 20 days later, on July 4, she was arrested and charged with manslaughter.
The family said Raymondville Judge George Solis gave her only a $20,000 bond. She was released on personal recognizance just hours later.
"I imagine he (the judge) has children and I hope the Lord never crosses his path and he loses a kid like I did, " Jesusa said.
Judge Solis, a man the family once voted for, has now lost their trust.
"Why did this judge do this to us? Just slap her on her hand and let her go to kill somebody else? Manuel said. I want her off the streets, I want her to pay for what she did: she committed a crime.
Manuel Trevino said he TMs not going to judge her, but that only God can judge her. He said he just wants her to pay for what she did.
The grieving family said Barrios had the opportunity to advise someone, but she ran from the scene and left Adrian there like an animal.
Action 4 News spoke to Judge Solis who said that he considered all the factors that are required for setting a bond.
