On August 27, a man from Augusta County was sentenced to one year in jail after pleading guilty to DUI involuntary manslaughter.

 

Jason Steidel pleaded guilty to the charge in April.

 

On December 12, 2007, Steidel was involved in a fatal crash in which Timothy Moran died.

 

According to police, at the time of the crash, Steidel was driving under the influence and was traveling at a speed of more than 100 miles per hour. He lost control of the vehicle he was driving and it overturned and struck a tree.

 

Sentencing guidelines for Virginia call for probation. However, due to a life being lost in the crash, the judge determined the guideline to be insufficient.
