||Tuesday, a drunk driver that killed a woman was sentenced to 15 years in prison as part of a plea bargain agreement.
Jimmy Nall, 46, killed Sherri Glover, 33, in 2003 on a rural road in Williamson County.
Glover was riding her motorcycle in June 2003 when Nall crashed into her head on around 10:30 a.m.
Nall’s blood alcohol level was .36, more than three times the legal limit at the time. Nall blacked out and said he doesn't remember any details about the crash.
As part of his plea bargain, he will get a folder full of photos and stories about Glover's life. He must also keep a photo of his victim hanging on the wall of his prison cell.
Nall had two prior DUI's before he hit Glover.
We've probably gotten the best sentence we could under the statutes, said Stephen Glover, the victim’s father. We need tougher laws to keep people from going out and keep getting DUI's over and over again, until finally it becomes a tragic accident where someone is killed.
Since Nall has been in jail since the crash, he’s eligible for parole in three years.
