SHALIMAR, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle man has pleaded guilty in a drunken driving crash that left a 16-year-old girl dead.
John Campbell Arthur pleaded guilty in Okaloosa County court Thursday to DUI manslaughter and driving with a suspended license. The 22-year-old faces up to 33 years in prison at his Dec. 14 sentencing.
Authorities say Alayna Bowman was pulling into the driveway of her Fort Walton Beach home in June when Arthur crashed into her while trying to driver around her car. His blood-alcohol level was measured to be 0.278 and 0.276, which is more than three times the legal limit.
Arthur also entered an admission of guilt Thursday to probation violation on the charges of carrying a concealed weapon, reckless driving and DUI with injury or damage to property.
