Blackfoot man gets 2 1/2 years prison in deadly crash
A Blackfoot man who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for his role in a traffic crash last summer has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.
Kendall Perry, 22, was also ordered by Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill on Monday to three years of supervised release and 200 hours of community service.
Perry was indicted by a federal grand jury in October for causing a rollover crash that led to the death of 19-year-old Cullen Fightsover.
Fightsover was pronounced dead after being flown to the hospital.
Perry has admitted to drinking hard alcohol and smoking marijuana in the hours before the crash.
Investigators say he was driving 74 mph in a 50 mph speed zone when he ran a stop sign, lost control and rolled into a field.
