schachter imageKlamath Falls, Ore. – A Klamath County man is headed to prison for 55 months for a drunk driving crash that killed a man.

57 year old Donald Marron Schachter pleaded ‘guilty’ in February to a charge of criminally negligent homicide, and was sentenced Tuesday.

The charges stem from a crash that happened in May of 2013 on Lower Klamath Lake Road, which claimed the life of Larry Tyree Standridge.

Police say Schachter had a blood alcohol content of .28 following the crash.

Schachter was sentenced on a plea agreement, and could have faced a 10 year sentence for first degree manslaughter.
