Ex-FBI Agent Gets 18 Months for Fatal Car Crash

A former FBI agent was sentenced to eighteen months in prison for a drunken driving crash that killed an 18-year-old man.

A Prince George's County jury convicted Adrian Johnson on charges including motor vehicle manslaughter and homicide by motor vehicle while intoxicated.

Johnson was intoxicated and speeding when he crashed his car into another vehicle in Brandywine on Feb. 7, 2011, authorities said. The crash killed the other vehicle's driver, Lawrence Garner Jr., and seriously injured Garner's best friend, Robert Mitchell II.

Johnson's lawyer, Robert Bonsib, argued that the crash was unavoidable and not his client's fault.

This story has been corrected from an earlier version that said he was sentenced to eight months.
