A jury finds the man found behind the wheel of a fatal drunk driving crash--guilty of manslaughter.
24-yar-old Taylor Berhow is found guilty on three counts of manslaughter--One for all three passengers who died in a horrific crash in Mandan last October.
The jury had to decide between manslaughter and a lesser charge of negligent homicide.
The verdict follows a plea agreement that judge Sonna Anderson had not accepted previously.
During the two-day trial, it was released that Berhow's blood alcohol level the morning of the crash was more than three times the legal limit.
Berhow and one passenger, Jarrod Turner, survived the crash.
The three victims were all in their early 20s... Their names are Charles Boehm, Trevor Erie and Eastman Nadeau.
Prosecutors say they each deserve a count of manslaughter.
"This case is very difficult, there's no perfect sentence, three young men lost their lives no matter how you look at it, we're never going to be able to get that back, I want to make sure that this time, the families get their opportunity to let their feelings be known and see what the judge decides is the correct sentence." says Jackson Lofgren/Morton Co. State's Attorney.
A sentence hearing will be scheduled for a later date.
Berhow's defense attorney, Tom Tutland says his client has felt terrible since the accident.
Tutland says he may have up to five witnesses testify on behalf of Berhow, including some members of the victim's family.
Manslaughter is a class B felony-- which carries up to ten years maximum sentence--for each count.
