A man convicted in the DUI deaths of two people in Scott County back in 2010 was sentenced in the case Monday.
Jeff Bailey was driving a pickup truck that collided head-on with a car on Lexington Road in northern Scott County on June 30, 2010. Scott County Deputy Coroner Leigh Hammond says Brian Keith Way, 32, of Lexington, died at the scene from blunt-force trauma to the body. Anna Hamilton, 29, also from Lexington, was transported to Georgetown Hospital and was later pronounced dead. She also died of blunt-force trauma to the body.
Bailey, who was treated and released from UK Hospital, had just gotten his license back shortly before the incident after it was suspended for not paying a traffic ticket.
On Monday, Bailey was sentenced to up to 20 years in prison. He will be eligible for parole.
