Yesterday we discussed a drunken driving case where someone was killed and it led to the offending driver probably being deported. Today we see how the drunk driver may be affected. Driving while drunk can kill others and can lead to a long prison sentence. Think before you drive drunk.
J. Prather was charged with driving under the influence that resulted in someone else’s death. Brian Speck was driving a motorcycle that was slammed into by a car that Prather was driving. Prather was also charged with hit-and-run. Prather was sentenced to 25 years for vehicular homicide and another 5 years for causing injury by vehicle while intoxicated.
Apparently he was despondent enough to attempt suicide. He was discovered by police who found him unconscious in his home.
