After a mistrial and denying he was driving the night of a fatal crash in 2006, a Grand Junction man was sentenced Friday.

Jade Huskey will serve 9 months in prison for the death of Molly Gomez.

Huskey has a four-year deferred judgment, meaning if he violates his probation he’ll go back to jail.

He must have an interlock device on his car, can’t have alcohol and must attend alcohol education classes along with doing public service and paying restitution and court fees.

He entered a guilty plea to vehicular homicide, DWAI and weaving in September.

He and his family still maintain his innocence, saying he wasn’t driving that night.

He says he entered the plea because he doesn’t have the money to go back to court and didn’t want to put both families through another trial.
