20-Year-Old Sentenced to Jail Time After Fatal Drunk Driving Accident

WFRV reports that 20-year-old Joseph Turppa was sentenced to serve ten months in jail after killing his best friend in a drunk driving accident. Turppa pled no contest against the reduced charges.

On the fateful evening, Turppa and his friend, Christian Laufenberg, were both in separate vehicles when Turrpa attempted to pass Laufenberg. According to WFRV, “Instead, he clipped the vehicle and his friends car went off the road, killing him.”

During today’s proceedings, Laufenberg’s parents asked the judge to be lenient. The judge was harsh, though, because Turppa confided to his parole officer that he smoked marijuana after being released from jail. WFRV writes that Turppa’s attorney said he should not be punished for his honesty.
