BRYAN CO., GA (WTOC) -

A Bulloch County man has pleaded guilty to all 11 charges, including first degree homicide by vessel and operation of a watercraft under the influence, in the August 2013 boating death of 25-year-old Shana Crozier.

Joseph Webb, 34, will serve a 15-year split sentence, with five years to serve and 10 years on probation. According to the Bryan County Clerk of Court, Webb pleaded out under what is called an Alford Plea, along with first offender status.

Crozier was riding in a friend's boat on the Ogeechee River, about three miles from the King's Ferry boat landing, when she hit her head on a train trestle and died. Webb was driving the boat at the time of Crozier's death.

Webb was indicted by a Bryan County grand jury for homicide by vessel and lying to law enforcement about his identity.
