Guilty plea in Everett to fatal DUI accident

EVERETT, Wash. -

A drunken driver who killed a man and injured two others in June of last year at Marysville pleaded guilty Tuesday in Everett to vehicular homicide, vehicular assault and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

The Daily Herald reports 28-year-old Terrence Olesen faces 12 to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced Oct. 24 in Snohomish County Superior Court.  The sentence is longer than standard because he also had a 2007 drunken driving conviction.

Olesen had been drinking vodka and beer and had a blood alcohol level of .24 percent after killing 18-year-old Shane Santos and injuring two friends.
