5th Dist.

WELCH
Holding: 
Affirmed.
Defendant was convicted of two counts of aggravated DUI resulting in two deaths (man who was carrying his infant son along road after midnight, having run out of gas), and two counts of failure to report an accident involving two deaths, and sentenced to 10 years and 5 years, to run consecutively. State presented sufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Defendant's actions of driving truck and of driving under the influence caused deaths. Court's consideration of only two of the seven mitigating factors presented by Defendant was not abuse of discretion. That adult victim was intoxicated and had parked his car in road with no lights on are not extraordinary circumstances to warrant sentence of probation. GOLDENHERSH and WEXSTTEN, concurring.)
