Car Accident Victim Not Happy With Sentence

Comments Off

Heraldnet.com reports that the driver of a motorcycle that was hit by a drunk high-school football coach is not satisfied with the sentence of three months work release.

According to a write-up about the car accident, the judge was impressed with Eric Kurle’s previous service to the community. However, Christopher Butts, the victim of Kurle’s drunk driving wasn’t impressed:

“I’m broke from my ankles to my neck,” Christopher Butts said after Thursday’s sentencing hearing, which he called “insulting to me and my family.”

Kurle’s blood alcohol level was about twice the legal limit when his SUV struck Butts’ motorcycle. Butts spent 19 days in the hospital.
