Brian Thomas Thompson, 25, was sentenced to six years in prison followed by nine years on probation by Judge Bill Fears Tuesday in Lamar superior court after pleading guilty to one count of first degree vehicular homicide in connection with a Jan. 31, 2015 crash that killed 21-year-old Kara Holland.
Judge Fears sent Thompson to prison after heart-wrenching testimony from the parents of his victim, Julie and Frankie Holland.
