Alex West is going to prison for 5 to 15 years. That's his sentence for causing and leaving the July boat crash that killed an 8-year-old girl.
The verdict came after a three-week trial. The sentence came after a 60-minute proceeding Monday.
West, 25, was facing a maximum sentence of 7 and a third to 22 years for manslaughter, leaving the scene and six other counts. The July 25 boat crash killed 8-year old Charlotte McCue as she was a passenger on a nighttime cruise on her grandfather's antique wooden boat.
Unless his appeal is successful, West won't be eligible for parole until 2022.
