Noack was traveling east on FM 1954 in a1999 Chevrolet Blazer at about 7:05 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013 when he veered into oncoming traffic, striking a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Thomas Eugene Chesser. Chesser was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. His daughter, Jenna Noel Chesser, was transported by helicopter to a Wichita Falls hospital, where she died.

Noack, 19, who lived at Arrowhead Ranch Estates at the time of the accident, was returning home.

In December, a Clay County grand jury indicted Noack on two charges of intoxicated manslaughter with a vehicle, a second-degree felony. According to the indictment, Noack had been using drugs prior to the accident. Bond was set at $100,000.

As part of the Aug. 18 plea agreement, Noack was given lesser charges of criminal negligent homicide, a state jail felony. Noack was sentenced to three years community supervision for each conviction to run concurrently and fined $1,000. He was credited with seven days served.
