A senior airman at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, who pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter and drunken driving in the June 2012 death of a retired Air Force technical sergeant was sentenced to two and a half years in prison and a bad conduct discharge.
Senior Airman Anjelika L. Faul, of the 82nd Dental Squadron, had faced up to 10 years in prison, the Wichita Falls Times Record News reported.
Faul was also reduced to E-1 as part of the sentence.
Faul was driving on northbound Interstate 44 in Wichita County when her car collided with a motorcycle driven by Michael Brown, a base news release said. Brown was a civilian employee with the 82nd Logistics Readiness Squadron at Sheppard. He was also a retired Air Force technical sergeant who had served in Germany, Michigan, Oklahoma and Texas and had worked as a blue beret, according to his obituary. He was 53.
