BATON ROUGE, La. — Authorities say a retired Air Force colonel who was intoxicated when he rear-ended a car on an interstate service road in Baton Rouge in 2008, killing two Ascension Parish teenagers, has pleaded guilty.
Fifty-eight-year-old Chris Michael Bourgeois was sentenced Monday to two years in prison.
He must serve one year of home incarceration after his release from prison, then will be placed on active supervised probation for five years.
State District Judge Louis Daniel also ordered Bourgeois to use an ignition interlock device on his vehicle as a condition of his probation.
Bourgeois was scheduled to stand trial Monday on two counts of vehicular homicide in the deaths of 15-year-old Ladarius Favorite and 13-year-old Andre Queen. He instead pleaded guilty to the charges.
