The driver of a vehicle involved in a
crash that killed four people faces sentencing September 7th after
a jury found him guilty of aggravated DUI yesterday (Friday).
The jury found 46-year-old Charles Lepine not guilty of
assaulting a law enforcement officer, however.
He faces up to 25 years in prison.
Lepine was charged after a February 22nd, 2003, crash in which
four people died.
Among the passengers killed was Lepine's 7½-month-old son Lance.
The others killed were Kenneth Verrett, his 2-month-old son
Kenneth Verrett Jr. and Frank Verrett.
Lepine's indictment said he was driving his vehicle with a
blood-alcohol level over the legal limit when he drove off
Mississippi 43 and into a ditch before hitting a culvert.
