PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Prosecutors reached a plea deal with the man who they said crashed his vehicle in Southwest Portland while he was drunk.
Audy Molina-Colindres was sentenced Monday by Judge Jean Kerr Maurer to just over 4 years in prison after pleading guilty to criminal negligent homicide and driving under the influence of intoxicants.
A grand jury originally indicted him on charges that included second-degree manslaughter, DUII and reckless driving following the Dec. 30, 2013 crash that killed Dmitriy Maksimov.
Maksimov was the passenger in Molina-Colindres’ vehicle, police said.
Officers with the Portland Police Bureau Major Crash Team determined that Molina-Colindres was headed southbound on Southwest Barbur Boulevard when he lost control near Southwest Miles Street.
According to deputy district attorney Rebecca Freeman, Molina-Colindres had a blood alcohol level of .13 following the crash.
Molina-Colindres apologized in court Monday afternoon.
The victim’s brother was in court, but declined to make a formal statement.
