Graham, NC– On Tuesday, in Alamance County, a judge sentenced a man to prison for his role in a fatal drunk driving crash. Curtis Lutterloh pleaded guilty to killing 17-year-old,
Darren Jones and leaving 38-year-old Carl Wheeler paralyzed and unable to speak. A judge sentenced Lutterloh to between 41 to 59 months in prison.
