BOISE, Idaho — An Eagle man convicted of vehicular manslaughter has been sentenced for his crime.
Judge Deborah Bail granted Adam Paulson probation with a suspended 15-year prison sentence.
Paulson was found guilty of felony vehicular manslaughter after he hit and killed 24-year-old Madeline Duskey just after midnight on Nov. 18, 2017, while driving under the influence of alcohol.
Duskey was crossing Eagle Road in a crosswalk when she was hit by Paulson's pickup.
Paulson had a blood alcohol content level of .21, more than two times the legal limit in Idaho.
Judge Bail sentenced Paulson to probation, while the state requested a prison sentence of 15 years, with Paulson serving five years before being eligible for parole.
Paulson has received credit for 14 months he spent in jail and will pay child support for Duskey's children until they become adults.
He will also perform 500 hours of community service, wear an alcohol monitor, and not be allowed to purchase, possess or consume alcohol.
