JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- David R. Gallagher, 20, was sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for DUI Manslaughter in the death of Joseph Davidson.
Gallagher pleaded guilty to the charge in June. Gallagher was also sentenced to four and a half years of probation and must complete 300 community service hours with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD.
In August 2012, Gallagher was driving down Julington Creek Road while intoxicated. He eventually lost control of the vehicle, drove across a grass shoulder and struck a parked F-250 truck head on, according to the State Attorney.
The victim, who was in the passenger seat, died at the scene.
Gallagher suffered only minor injuries.
