EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – An Evansville man, who is facing a decade in prison for causing a car crash that killed a business owner, is appealing his sentence.
In February, William Buckman admitted he was high on meth when he drove his car the wrong way down First Ave. and ran into a car driven by Darla Smith.
After pleading guilty just two weeks ago, Buckman was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Tuesday, he was appointed a public defender to appeal the sentence.
