MCALLEN, TEXAS — The owner of Global Limo Inc., was recently acquitted of felony charges brought against him in a limo bus accident that killed 23 nursing home residents last year.

James Maples was found guilty of two lesser charges — failing to maintain his bus fleet properly and failing to require his drivers to complete vehicle-inspection reports after trips. The jury found him not guilty of conspiring to force his drivers to falsify driver logs to boost company profits. Maples’s attorney said he will ask for probation when sentenced in December.
