Wewahitchka man sentenced to five years for DUI manslaughter

Published: Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 03:38 PM.

Sedich, 22, was a carnival worker from Jacksonville working temporarily in Wewahitchka.

He had just left a Dollar Store and was walking along the right-hand side of State 71 when he was struck. He died instantly.

Husband was arrested in March after blood alcohol tests taken at the time of the accident showed that Husband had a blood alcohol content above the legal limit.

A plea agreement was reached with the State Attorney after several factors came to light, in particular evidentiary issues related to handling of the blood taken from Husband.

But Husband accepted responsibility for the accident, as evidenced during last week’s sentencing in front of tearful family members.
