Recently the case took yet another turn when the man responsible for the crash, Brett Gerald, made an appeal to shave time off his sentence. As it stands right now, Gerald was set to serve 5 years for each person who died in the crash, but he is now looking to get the sentence reduced to just five years total.


ehh, he's got 30 now and is appealing.

If I had caused the death of 6 family members because I was drunk, you may as well go ahead and lock me up, I'd be a head case and wouldn't give a frick.

Right, but his Attorney is trying to get it reduced to 5 years total. Sorry, that's what I meant.

Change your thread title.

35. The original sentence was 70 years; 10 years for each person killed.

What kind of BAC did he have?

General question: If you are driving drunk and obeying traffic laws but someone else runs a red light and you kill them, do you still get charged for manslaughter?

That's his attorney's job. It won't happen. They know it won't happen. Automatic appeals.
