A man was sentenced on Friday to two years, two months in prison for a Lakebay crash that killed his passenger last year.
Charles Hall, 28, pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.
According to charging papers:
Hall took steroids and drank alcohol on Nov. 29 before driving and hitting a tree near the 2700 block of Jackson Lake Road KPN.
Never miss a local story.
Pierce County prosecutors said Hall lost control of the 1991 Chevrolet Camaro while taking a curve, and the car flipped and hit the tree.
Tests showed that Hall’s blood-alcohol level was 0.13, above the legal limit of 0.08. He told investigators that he’d consumed alcohol and taken steroids while working out before the wreck.
His passenger, 27-year-old Jacob Reinhart, died at the scene. He was a carpenter who had a young son.
