The guy has been in prison for almost 10 years now for manslaughter. I am wondering why parole has not been a factor. The original case was a dui accident where an individual in the other vehicle was killed. I have seen people convicted of murder in the second degree be out on parole quicker.

I've read your comment over and over. I'm torn between thinking your in early elementary school grade or borderline illiterate.

Well that comment took some time to decipher. Looking at kool, he was charged with manslaughter second degree and assault 1st degree. The average time in KY for manslaughter 2nd degree is 6 years and some change. The assault charge is the one that carries the weight;

Historic Percentage of Time Served for Similar Offenders: 82 %- 12 year / 3 months.

Anyway, I guess if it was someone I cared about, I might have the same opinion as omg.

The man he killed is my family. The way he was sentenced with there being 2 charges the 1st being manslaughter and the other being assault he has to serve 85% before being paroled. Had he only had one charge he would be out by now. Btw it also fails to mention that was his 6th DUI charge in his life and he ruined my family.

Sorry that might being confusing. He got 25 years 10 for manslaughter and 15 for assault 1. Sentencing to run concurrent so he has to serve 85% of the 25 years. Which if you look at it this way he has to serve the entire 15 for assault on Kim but will never serve a day for killing Bill.

I agree that people should have to pay for the crimes they committ. With that being said Orville has paid everyday that he has been in prison. For almost 10 and a half years he has missed seeing his son grow up, and he has also missed out on his two grandchildren being born and seeing them grow. He is a person that has made many mistakes in the past and this is the one that it took to turn his life around and show him the horrible and destructive path he was on. He is not a bad person, he just chose to make the worst decisions possible. He is sorry for what happened and will be everyday of his life. That is not something that is just taken lightly. He does have a conscious.

Yea Bill has missed seeing his sons growing up also. Everything Orville has missed so has Bill. The only difference is one day Orville will start a new life and see his and grandchildren Bill never will. He paid the ultimate price for another's mans mistake

Agreed that it was his mistake. Bit there are a lot of people who commit the same crime and serve much less time.

Maybe so but the family had nothing to do with the way he has to serve his time. That was all the judge.

Sentencing laws in Kentucky have some stupid quirks. Attempted murder is not considered a violent offense so you can get out after serving on 20% of your sentence. Felony Assault is a violent offense and you have to serve 85%.

He is not serving 85% just for the assault, he has to serve 85% for the combine charges of assault 1 and manslaughter together. He is guilty of both crimes. He killed one person and almost killed another.

My husband is in prison with Clater. He said that Clater is a hell of a guy. Yes he made a mistake and should have to serve some time but not as long as he has to serve. The Kentucky court system is totally screwed up. They wonder why our budget is in bad shape, well it's because they put almost everyone in prison and never parole the ones that will not come back to prison but the one's they know that will come back. That being said, Kentucky court system sucks a big one!!!

This may be true but murder is murder no matter how or why it's committed! He needs to just be glad he's not doing LIFE and hopefully learned a lesson the hard way! Do the crime and pay your time!

Orville made a trouble mistake and feels guilty every day. lets get one thing straight he hadn't had a dui in a 11 years cause he was raising his daughter. I feel very sorry for Bill's family and his kids I knew this man and he was a nice guy. Murder is when you want and don't care that you just ended someones life. Not a person that rushes to the other car and tries to help the people. It is a tradegy for both families.

Your a real idiot. Let it happen to your kid or parent by a regular known drunk and then you let us know how you feel about it. Dumbass

I agree to somewhat with both of you. If its somebody you lost you may feel different. My only arguement, is he's been in prison a long time. He did try to help the couple. That doesnt help their family sorrow, but it showed he had a conscience and heart. I get it. A total drunk stranger kills my family, I would probably want them to die, but after grief and time, I think some can forgive over time.

He doesn't have to die. And it hasn't been that long. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But all I'm saying is this wasn't his first DUI or run in with the law. Persistent felons earn what they get. I mean come on! Everyone in prison is innocent ya know. Just ask them.

The reason he got such a long sentence is because all of the trouble he had been in prior to this occurrence. No matter how you want to spin it. He had a life time of trouble from a teenager to when he went to prison. The judge made an example of him. He has a record of at atleast 3 pages. If he had not has the checkered history he would be out. And someone has already stated the obvious. He will get out eventually and be able to start over. He has the option to make his life the best he can at that point. The unfortunate people that he hit that night will never get that option.

He was not in trouble from a teenager till the time he went to prison. He hadn't been in trouble for the past 11 years until that night. He made a bad chose and regrets it everyday. Thats why he didn't take it to court he pleaded guilty and took the sentence that was given. Sorry for the family's loss; No family deserves to go through that tradegy.
