Evans man sentenced to prison for vehicle homicide

An Evans man who was driving drunk when he crashed his vehicle head-on into another driver was sentenced to 15 years in prison Thursday for vehicular homicide.

Douglas S. Robinson, 43, pleaded guilty in Columbia County Superior Court to vehicular homicide, driving under the influence, endangering a child while driving under the influence, driving on the wrong side of the roadway and driving too fast for conditions, said Assistant District Attorney Thomas Watkins.

Judge Daniel J. Craig sentenced Robinson. Watkins said Robinson had no prior criminal history.

Robinson was driving a GMC Yukon on Baker Place Road the afternoon of April 17, 2016, when he crossed the center line and struck a Toyota Tacoma driven by 45-year-old Franciso Briceno. Robinson was driving with his wife and infant child in the car.

According to his obituary, Briceno was married and the father of two children.
