RILEY COUNTY, Kan.(WIBW)--A Kansas State University graduate student responsible for a head-on collision that killed an Ogden couple will serve 60 days in the Riley County Jail.
The state requested that Miles Theurer, 24, receive prison time but Judge John Bosh granted departure over the state during Theurer's sentencing hearing Monday, June 17, 2013.
Prosecutors described the case as a night out partying that ended in tragedy for two innocent victims.
Theurer previously entered pleas of no contest to two counts of Involuntary Manslaughter While Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol in a plea agreement with the state.
He was arrested at the Riley County Police Department on September 20, 2012 on a Riley County District Court warrant, several months after being involved in the deadly head-on collision.
The accident occurred on Monday, May 14, 2012 on K-18 near Scenic Drive in Riley County, two miles west of the city limits of Manhattan. Due to road construction on the highway, traffic was reduced to two lanes with opposing traffic traveling directly next to each other.
The crash involved two cars- a 2003 Chevy Silverado which was occupied by four people and driven by Theurer and a 2001 Buick LeSabre which was occupied by a couple- 31-year-old Elizabeth Young and 31-year-old Michael Stanley. The engaged couple was from Ogden.
Prosecutors say Theurer's Chevy Silverado truck crossed over the center line and was going the wrong way eastbound in the westbound lanes of K-18. Another passing driver spotted Theurer heading the wrong way in traffic and tried to catch his attention by flashing his lights, honking and waving his arm out of his window.
Assistant Riley County Attorney Wes Garrison says Theurer and his friends spent the night drinking at a strip club in Junction City.
Theurer ended up striking Young's car (that was going west on K-18) head on.
Young, a mother of two, and Stanley, a father of two, died at the scene. Their cause of death was severe trauma they received in the crash. The state says that blood work showed Theurer had a blood alcohol level of .19 at the time of the accident, more than twice the legal limit.
Troopers with the Kansas Highway Patrol reconstructed the accident scene during their investigation and once the reports and tests were complete, they presented their findings to the Riley County Attorney's Office, resulting in the warrant and Theurer's arrest four months later.
Kansas State University's website lists Theurer as a graduate PhD student in Veterinary Medicine. Theurer's permanent address is listed in Wellington, Kansas but arrest records list a local address for him in Manhattan.
When Theurer pleaded no contest to his charges, Riley County District Court Judge John Bosch said he faced 3-14 years on each of his charges but Bosch did not stick to the presumed sentence outlined in the Kansas sentencing guidelines, giving Theurer two months in the Riley County Jail and ordering him to speak at schools and churches on the dangers of drunk driving.
Theurer will also serve 36 months probation after getting out of jail.
The Riley County Attorney's Office is filing an appeal of the 60-day sentencing. The Kansas Court of Appeals will ultimately decide whether there was a basis for Bosch's decision to depart from the sentencing guidelines.

Riley County District Court Judge John Bosch is a big time Progressive Democrat. Only an idiot would make this ruling. It's disgusting.

Big time progressive Democrat? please show evidence of that. After all he was appointed by Brownback, the most right wing conservative governor this state has ever seen, and several years ago he ran for District 64 state representative as a Republican, losing to the late Steve Lloyd.
I think if you are going to throw around people's political affiliations to try and make a party look bad, you might want to do your homework - But of course there might be some evidence that you're right - I would sure love to see it.

So really the only justification for calling this registered Republican a "Progressive Democrat" is because you think his rulings don't correlate to the way a typical Republican judge would have ruled.
What do you mean by a "progressive" stance on appeals?

No matter the politics in this case, how does anyone get away with involuntary manslaughter, times 2. I think he should pay the victims family a check for $1 every time he gets paid for the rest of his life to remember what he did, how it will effect their families for every holiday, the anniversary date of the accident, birthdays, fathers day, mothers day, these families will suffer forever. Will he remember after a few years? Make the punishment fit the crime. Make him remember as the families have to. Not to mention they will remember every time they drive that street. Just horrid.

You weren't on the jury or in the courtroom, Jerry, so your opinion is at best uninformed.

Your description of Bosch shows what a greater character such a man has compared to a slime ball like you.

The ruling seems correct. It is certainly superior to the Texas DA who refused to prosecute "Big Time" Dick Cheney for shooting a friend in the face while drunk.

I see - so because he agrees with the judges ruling you feel that is interpreted to mean that he defends the drunk drivers actions? Interesting - sad, but interesting.
BTW - your comments about the judge and the kids family being "notorious big dems" what do you base that idea on?

Jerry doesn't understand nuances, which is why he's a right-wing boor who believes the incomprehensible sht they take for granted.

My point exactly - reading comprehension. Understanding the judges ruling does not equal condoning drunk driving. I'm not sure how much clearer that can be made.
But I do understand how some in our staunch Republican society can be confused as to how a Republican judge can rule in the manner that he has - thus the automatic cries that he is a liberal democrat. Sometimes even I agree with the actions of our Republican leaders.

"Defends the drunken killing of a young mother and father"

Answer - by agreeing with the judges, at best, slap on the wrist sentence.

Gosh! Would you be so merciful if he had accidentally shot them with a shotgun blast?
Hahahhaha stupid mouth breathing drunks swerving all over the place while napping and catching flies with their mouths hanging open, in the wind, behind the wheel on the way home from the tittie bar.

I am beginning to think you seriously don't understand how understanding the judges ruling is not the same as condoning drinking and driving. You obviously did not read the rest of this young man's sentence or what the judge had to say. I guess the name you chose for yourself explains it all!
