PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Great Barrington man police say was driving nearly 100 miles per hour in a 35 mile-per-hour zone when his car crashed into a tree, killing his girlfriend, has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.
Kevin Blanco pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide Monday in Central Berkshire District Court in connection with the March 2010 crash in Sheffield that took the life of 20-year-old Stacy Sullivan. Two other passengers were hurt.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that Blanco was given a two-year sentence with 30 days to serve and the rest suspended for 11 months of probation. He was also ordered to perform 50 hours of community service.
A tearful Blanco tearfully apologized in court. His lawyer said no drugs or alcohol, were involved.
