Man Pleads Guilty To Intoxicated Manslaughter

A man has pleaded guilty to intoxicated manslaughter in a multi-car wreck that claimed a life.

In November of 2017, Police say 30-year old David Taylor was speeding south on Georgia when he crashed into a car driven by 72-year old Stanly Martinez causing him to spin into another vehicle.

Martinez was taken to an area hospital where he later died of his injuries and Taylor was treated for non-life threatening injuries and was later arrested for intoxicated manslaughter.

On January 7, prosecutors filed a proposed judgment that would mean Taylor would serve 14 years for the death of Martinez.

Taylor and the local bar Fast Eddie’s are named in a pending separate civil lawsuit for liability for by the victim’s daughter, Kimberlin Shipman, for serving Taylor alcohol that night and pain and suffering due to the death of her father.

Fast Eddie’s has denied any liability.
