A Sheridan man will spend the next 28 months in prison for his involvement in a drunken November crash on Cherry Hill Road that critically injured his stepbrother.
John Brodniak, 26, pleaded guilty in Yamhill County Circuit Court to one count each of third-degree assault, a Class C felony, and driving under the influence of intoxicants, a Class A misdemeanor. In exchange, one count each of reckless driving and reckless endangering were dismissed as part of a plea agreement negotiated by Deputy District Attorney Alicia Eagan.
Judge Ronald Stone sentenced him to 28 months on the assault count and 12 months on the DUII count, to run concurrently. Upon release, he faces 36 months of post-prison supervision, 60 months of driver’s license suspension and payment of $1,255 in fines and fees.
