Drunk driver asking for shorter sentence again
BATON ROUGE - Attorneys for the Greensburg man who killed seven people in a drunken crash said they're going to ask a judge to reduce his sentence again.
Brett Gerald pleaded guilty this past December to seven counts of vehicular homicide in the May 2012 wreck.
He initially received a 70 year sentence, but in May a judge reduced that to 35 years to comply with a Supreme Court ruling.
Now Gerald's attorney tells News 2 he plans to file an appeal claiming his sentence is excessive, and have it reduced even further.
News 2's Chris Nakamoto will have reaction from the victims' relatives to this development tonight starting at 4 p.m.
