MANHATTAN, Kan. - It's a Kansas court ruling that has a lot of people talking.
A Riley County man was given just two months in jail for driving drunk and causing a head-on collision near Manhattan that killed two people last year.
Michael Stanley, and his fiancée, Elizabeth Young, were killed in the May 2012 accident caused by Miles Theurer.
Theurer, a Kansas State University graduate student, had a blood alcohol level of more than two times the legal limit as he drove home from a strip club with friends and veered into oncoming traffic.
In giving Theurer 60 days in jail, Riley County District Court Judge John Bosch deviated from the state's sentencing guidelines for the crime. He told the court, based on Theurer's total lack of criminal history, his academic success, and his remorse, he felt the better benefit for society would be a shorter sentence.
The prosecutor has said he will appeal and seek more prison time for Theurer. Neidenthal told WIBW she hopes to see that appeal through because the current sentence does not provide justice.
