SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A San Antonio man has received a 45-year prison sentence after jurors rejected his argument that his girlfriend who died in a drunken motorcycle crash was the one driving.
Donald Huff was sentenced by a judge Thursday.
The San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/15Yi6Xv) reports Huff was charged with intoxication manslaughter for the 2009 crash that killed Arlene Kay Harding-Watts. The 54-year-old Huff faced extra prison time because it was his third arrest for driving while intoxicated, and because he was arrested a fourth time for DWI after the crash.
He claimed he let Harding-Watts drive the motorcycle, but a paramedic testified he saw Huff try to pick her up after the crash and put her on the motorcycle.
