Eugene (KMTR) – A judge has sentenced a Eugene man to 10 years in prison, followed by three years of probation, after his conviction for manslaughter, assault and reckless driving. Since the conviction involves a Measure 11 offense, there is no possibility that Brandon J. Schooley, 21, will be released early.
On January 16, 2010, Schooley was driving north on U.S. Highway 101 near Sea Lion Caves when his car crossed the centerline on a sharp curve and crashed head-on into another car. A passenger in that car died. Nine other people from both cars, including Schooley, were taken to various hospitals.
After his release from prison, Schooley will lose his driving privileges for eight years.
