IDAHO CITY, Idaho (AP) — A Boise man convicted for his role in a fatal crash that led to the death of his stepdaughter has been ordered to serve time in prison. Fourth District Judge Patrick Owen handed down the penalty Thursday for 32-year-old David Leroy Persons.

Persons was sentenced from two to 10 years in prison, but the judge retained jurisdiction in the case. That means Persons could be released from prison in six to 12 months if he successfully completes treatment. He pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter for his role in a 2012 crash near the Lucky Peak Reservoir northeast of Boise.

Investigators say Persons was driving drunk, veered off the roadway and plunged 70 feet below into the reservoir. Persons, his wife and two children escaped, but a four-year child drowned.
