Son of Former GA Lieutenant Governor Sentenced in DUI Case

The son of Georgia's former lieutenant governor Mark Taylor, now faces a year in jail.

Fulton Taylor was sentenced to the minimum yesterday after pleading guilty to felony DUI in an accident involving the death of a young man. Authorities say after drinking at a bar with a friend in August, 2005, Taylor was driving a sport utility vehicle when it hit a wall and flipped, throwing 22-year-old Joseph Gennert from the vehicle, killing him.

Besides the year behind bars, Taylor will serve five years probation and pay a $15,000 fine.
