Earl Wilson sentenced to 15 years to life in prison

Earl Wilson had made an attempt to have his guilty plea withdrawn before sentencing.

Sentencing took place today and those efforts fell short.

Wilson was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison. He admitted to driving drunk in an accident, which left two people on a motorcycle dead.

According to family members, the sentencing is the closest thing to closure that any of them will get. Their family members will never be brought back.

He argued over the last several weeks that Steven Lester, the operator of the motorcycle had also been drinking. Wilson had a blood-alcohol level .23, which is nearly three-times the legal limit.

It also was not his first DWI, as it was found that Wilson had multiple previous convictions. Wilson says he plans to appeal now that sentencing has taken place.
