Faith Man Sentenced To 25 Years In Fatal Crash

December 6, 2012, 4:22 PM

PIERRE, SD -

A 63-year-old Faith man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for driving drunk on the wrong side of the road in a rural Haakon County crash that killed one woman and injured another.

Circuit Court Judge Barnett gave Walt Lee Taton the maximum sentence for vehicular homicide and vehicular battery and ordered his license revoked for life.

The state's attorney's office says Taton was also sentenced to 30 days in the county jail for driving upon the wrong side of the road and one year for driving under the influence.

Prosecutors say Taton was driving on the wrong side of the road April 28 on Highway 34 in rural Haakon County, resulting in the death of Heather Unser and seriously injuring Sadie Clark.
