The Idaho Mountain Express reports Steven Tyler Jameson, 20, was sentenced by 5th District Judge Robert Elgee on June 3. Elgee gave Jameson a two-year fixed prison sentence, followed by a 4 1/2-year indeterminate sentence. Jameson was given credit for the year he has spent in jail.
Jameson pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter in April for the June 2, 2012, death of Stephen Ray Franco, 26, of Ketchum. Jameson admitted that he had been drinking and accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake as Franco was directing him as he backed up.
