SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California man is facing 19 years to life in prison for a drunken driving crash that killed a pedestrian.
Mary Steves was attempting to find the owner of a loose dog two years ago when she was struck down and killed near her Laguna Niguel home.
An Orange County jury on Thursday convicted 29-year-old Adam Harrison Hall of murder, driving under the influence of drugs and forgery of prescription drugs, among other things.
Prosecutors say Hall was behind the wheel of a sport utility vehicle that drove through a red light and collided with a Toyota SUV before striking and killing Steves.
Hall, who had two prior convictions for driving under the influence, faces 19 years to life in prison when he's sentenced on April 5.
