Mack convicted of manslaughter in death of SVMS student Ryan Padilla

Roy Mack Miller, Jr., 70, of Canyon Lake, was convicted of manslaughter in New Braunfels Thursday in the death of Smithson Valley Middle School student Ryan Padilla in December, 2005.

On Friday Miller was sentenced to 11 years in prison after his retrial – the maximum amount he might have been sentenced to was 99 years.

Ryan was run over and killed by Miller as he left his school bus on FM 3159 in Canyon Lake.

Miller’s first trial in March resulted in a mistrial when 11 jurors returned for conviction and one was against.
