Man Found Guilty of Auto Homicide
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ A jury convicted a man Wednesday of vehicular homicide in the death of one of Vice President Al Gore’s top state fund-raisers.
Jimmy Millican was convicted of aggravated vehicular homicide and driving on a revoked license in the death of Alex Haught on March 3, 1999.
The borrowed van Millican was driving smashed into Haught’s car. Police said Millican ran a red light in the crash and appeared intoxicated.
Haught, 34, had taken a leave of absence as chief of staff for Rep. Bob Clement, D-Tenn., to work on the Gore campaign.
Clement said after the verdict that he was pleased that justice was served.
``Unfortunately, this sentence does not undo the tragic loss of Alex Haught’s life.″ Clement said.
