Willis Sentenced in Sauls Death
Dustin Willis will serve at least nine years after being the source of the alcohol behind a rollover crash that killed Cheyenne Sauls in February 2011.
Dustin Willis, 22, will spend at least the next nine years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday to vehicular homicide and two counts of causing serious injury by vehicle for supplying alcohol to minors, the Douglas County Sentinel reports.
Douglas County Superior Court Judge Robert James said Willis must serve nine years of the three 15-year sentences he received. The sentences will run concurrently.
Willis was the source of the alcohol consumed by Jason Lark. He was in the Chevrolet Blazer that crashed and flipped early Feb. 19, 2011, while Lark was driving the group between drinking parties. Cheyenne Sauls, a 16-year-old Villa Rica High School student, was killed in the wreck.
Sauls was killed when she was thrown from the vehicle on Pleasant Drive near Bright Star Road when Lark lost control of his SUV, which overturned several times.
