The wrong-way driver who hit and killed a man and his two daughters was sentenced in Kootenai County court on Tuesday.

Turner was just sentenced to three seven-year sentences, to be served concurrently, only the first year is fixed. This means he’ll serve a max of seven years and could be released much sooner.
