Man likely to serve less than 2 weeks for death

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) -- Washington County prosecutors say the family of a Waynesboro, Pa., man killed by a drunken driver has asked that he serve less than two weeks in jail.

The Herald-Mail (http://bit.ly/ZcTVMn ) of Hagerstown reports that 45-year-old Bryan May of Boonsboro was sentenced Tuesday for manslaughter and homicide while driving under the influence of alcohol.

The judge sentenced him to four years. But in a deal approved by the family of victim Bradley Christman, May would be jailed until March 31, and then have a sentence-modification hearing.

He could then be released to serve nine months on home detention and 100 hours of community service.

Judge Daniel Dwyer says May had a blood-alcohol level that barely qualified for the DUI charge. Dwyer says the death last July was an accident.
