COVINGTON, Louisiana — A 22-year-old Covington man who struck and killed a pedestrian while he was intoxicated last year has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and was sentenced to five years in prison.
On Monday, NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/1cMKh1b ) William Marshall Seither Jr. apologized to Lisa Pitre's family in court before he was sentenced.
Seither was arrested last March after he struck Pitre, a pedestrian, in Covington.
District Judge Martin Coady sentenced Seither to 15 years at hard labor, but suspended 10 years of the sentence. Three years of his sentence must be served without the benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.
