He continued to get in trouble with the law, now Chip Daniels is headed to prison. Four years ago, Daniels was sentenced to eight years probation for causing a wreck while he was under the influence of Xanax and marijuana. 27 year old Shane Aldridge was killed in the wreck.
Today, a judge revoked Daniel's probation and ordered him to spend two years in prison. Since the accident, Daniels had been arrested on several other charges including possession of cocaine and DWI.
After today's hearing, the victim's family comforted each other. Daniel's mother says no one won today's hearing.
"It's a sad day for everyone. It's a sad day," says Daniels' mother Debbie.
"Two years beats nothing. No, I'm not happy about it, but I'm not happy that he's been out the four years, but I couldn't get anybody to listen," says Aldridge's grandmother Margaret.
Shane Aldridge left behind two young daughters. Margaret says she plans on calling the girls at their home in California to tell them there is finally some justice in their father's death.
