The Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld a judge’s decision to sentence Bryan K. Howard to eight years in prison.
Howard pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide in the death of Bradley K. Lively. He had a blood alcohol level of .10 when he killed Lively in a July 2007 car crash.
Roane County Criminal Court Judge E. Eugene Eblen denied all forms of alternative sentencing when he sentenced
Howard in March of last year.
In his appeal, Howard argued that Eblen erred in denying all forms of alternative sentencing.
