George McKinney, 24, Lake Charles, was re-sentenced today by Judge David Ritchie after the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals remanded the matter for resentencing.

Upon his release, McKinney must serve 3 years of supervised probation, pay nearly twenty thousand dollars in restitution, and complete 300 hours of community service.
In October of 2020, McKinney struck and killed a pedestrian due to driving under the influence and speeding.
