JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Jacksonville man will spend the maximum 15 years in prison for the traffic crash that killed a St. Johns County deputy.
Twenty-seven-year-old Kris Caudilla pleaded guilty in August to one count of DUI manslaughter for the January death of 44-year-old Deputy James Anderson Jr. Caudilla had a blood-alcohol level of 0.158 when he drove head-on into Anderson's patrol car. Anderson was on his way to work when the crash occurred. He later died at a hospital.
In exchange for his plea, prosecutors agreed not to pursue a count of vehicular homicide.
