TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa man will have to return to prison to serve the rest of his 24-year prison sentence related to a 2009 car accident that killed three people.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/28KjLcd ) reports that after spending nearly five months out of custody, Steven Wade Jameson must return to prison due to an appellate court’s opinion that a Tulsa County judge erred when he threw out the 26-year-old’s manslaughter conviction in January.

The Oklahoma Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with the Tulsa County district attorney’s argument that District Judge James Caputo unlawfully granted Jameson post-conviction relief.

Caputo had ruled Jameson be released on bond pending a challenge of his conviction that’s based on another ruling that the suspension of his driver’s license wasn’t valid.

Jameson pleaded guilty in 2011 to three counts of first-degree manslaughter while driving under suspension.
