LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A University of Kansas graduate was sentenced to three years in county jail for an accident that cost another student his legs.

Julian M. Kuszmaul, of Lawrence, was sentenced Thursday after being convicted in December of second-offense DUI, refusing to submit to alcohol or drug testing and possession of marijuana.

Prosecutors say that in August 2012, Colby Liston was pinned between a vehicle driven by Kuszmaul and another car, which was parked illegally. After the accident Liston, who is now 20, had his legs amputated above the knees.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/1CYehPH ) blood tests showed Kuszmaul had a blood-alcohol content of 0.25, three times the legal limit of 0.08, when he struck Liston.

Kuszmaul’s attorney said he plans to an appeal.
