Vehicle Homicide Sentencing

A Topeka man avoided a long prison sentence for a fatal accident.

Austin Bornman was convicted of misdemeanor vehicular homicide for an October 2006 accident at 17th and Belle.

Twenty-seven-year old Christopher Braden was killed.

Bornman was given a 12-month suspended sentence.

He will spend sixty days in jail, in increments of no more than six days each.

Bornman had faced a more serious charge of involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence, but a jury convicted him on a less charge.
