20-year old Zachry Kindred was sentenced to 68 months in a juvenile rehabilitation program.
In 2018, Kindred crashed head-on into a motorcycle on highway 234 near Eagle Point. The two people on the motorcycle, Daniel Foster, 60, and his passenger, Catherine Hock, 54, died at the scene.
A toxicology report found marijuana and cocaine in kindred’s system. He pleaded guilty.
Kindred’s attorney thought he would be eligible for early release the prosecution disagrees. The judge has set a hearing for next month.
