MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A Berkeley County man indicted in the March 2008 death of a 27-year-old woman in an alcohol-related accident admitted in circuit court on Monday that he caused her death and injured three others in the vehicle he was driving.
Ricky Luther Corbin, 25, of Bunker Hill, W.Va., entered guilty pleas to one felony count of DUI causing death and three misdemeanor counts of DUI causing injury as part of a binding plea deal agreed upon the day before the case was scheduled to go to trial.
A sentencing hearing was scheduled for Aug. 24 by 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge Christopher C. Wilkes.
In addition to fines and restitution, Corbin will face four to 10 years behind bars, according to Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Jean Games-Neely.
The jail term for the third DUI with injury charge would be served at the same time as the term for the other charges, Games-Neely said.
