MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — A prosecutor says he'll appeal the probation given to Kansas State University graduate student for a head-on crash that killed two people.
KMAN-AM reports (http://bit.ly/14In3Ce ) Riley County Attorney Barry Wilkerson filed notice Tuesday that he'll seek prison time for 24-year-old Miles Theurer.
The veterinary medicine student pleaded no contest in May to two counts of involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol.
Theurer was driving a pickup truck that crashed into a car the morning of May 14, 2012. The collision killed the car's occupants, Michael Stanley and Elizabeth Young.
A Riley County judge on Monday sentenced Theurer to 60 days in jail followed by 36 months of probation. But Wilkerson says that under Kansas law, Theurer's conviction carries a presumptive sentence of 38 to 43 months in prison.
