A man who drove under the influence, causing an accident that killed a Pasco couple, also faced charges of sex with a minor and sentenced to 7.5 years in prison. Brent Owens was in court in Yakima Friday listening to people give statements on behalf of himself and his victims before being sentenced to 7.5 years in prison. That is where the second charge of sex with a minor was mentioned where he paid a 15 year old girl to have sex with him.

The toxicology reports show he was under the influence of drugs but that may or may not have caused him to fall asleep behind the wheel. The sex with a minor charge is unrelated to the vehicular manslaughter charge.
