Sentence stands in fatal DUI crash in Del Norte County

DEL NORTE COUNTY- The original sentence remains for a former Crescent Elk Middle School Assistant Principal who was found guilty of a DUI crash that took the life of a Klamath man.

Kenneth Jones was 67 when he was killed in December of 2012 in the crash.  In March, Coulter Mann was sentenced to three years in state prison.  Days after the original sentencing, Judge Richard Kalustian decided to recall the sentence and have Mann evaluated by officials at San Quentin State Prison.  The prosecutor says a correctional counselor and psychologist with the prison found Mann had shown no remorse and is still a threat to society.  They recommended he receive his original sentence.  At the resentencing on Thursday, the judge sentenced Mann to serve the rest of his original three-year sentence.  He’s scheduled to be released from prison in September of 2015, because Mann is only required to serve half of the time.
