September 21, 2018

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A North Carolina woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges in a wreck that killed a Georgia man more than three years ago.

The Savannah Morning News reported that 26-year-old Amanda Marie Abram of Fayetteville, North Carolina, pleaded guilty in court in Savannah on Thursday to vehicular homicide.

Abram acknowledged she was driving under the influence in 2015 when she crossed the center line of a road and collided with a car driven by 24-year-old Justin Sarvar. He was taken to Memorial University Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

Abram must serve the first 10 years in custody with the remaining five on probation with a list of special conditions including various alcohol screenings.
