(COLUMBIA, S.C.) -- After pleading guilty to two counts of reckless homicide, Jabari Harding, a former Army Reserve soldier, will spend 10 years in prison for each count, The State reports.
Harding was convicted after a car crash left two Allen University students dead and another student brain damaged in 2009. On the night of the accident, Harding had a blood alcohol level of .08, the legal limit, and was driving at speeds of 45 to 60 miles per hour when he struck Jerry Blandin, Candice Davis, and Courtney Davis.
Harding, an Iraq veteran who served as an Army recruiter in Alabama, originally pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in 2011. He has been detained at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center since 2009. Harding will be credited with time served.
