Billy Lane Pleads No Contest, Faces Up To 9 Years

Lane pleaded no contest to one count of vehicular homicide this morning in a Florida courtroom.  Judge Robert Burger accepted the plea and scheduled sentencing for August 14.  According to the plea deal arranged, Billy Lane will face up do nine years of prison time and a lifetime suspension of drivers license.

The August sentencing will bring a conclusion to the nearly three year saga that began with a fatal crash that killed a park ranger on Labor Day weekend in 2006.  Lane was driving drunk and today was convicted of vehicular homicide.
