KINGWOOD, W.Va. (AP) - A Terra Alta man has been given the maximum sentence for a DUI with death.
The Dominion Post of Morgantown reports (https://bit.ly/1TVdFCJ) that in August 2014, 27-year-old Jerold Lee Sisler was driving a pickup truck that crossed the center line of West Virginia Route 7 near Hopemont. The truck hit a car driven by 34-year-old Saunya Sines, killing her.
On Monday, Judge Lawrance Miller Jr. sentenced Sisler to 2 to 10 years in prison with credit for time served, but denied the request for probation and ordered him to prison.
State Police say Sisler initially denied he was driving the truck. His blood alcohol level was .276 when it was measured, according to police. The legal driving limit is .08.
