Iola man sentenced for role in wreck



May 10, 2016 - 12:00 AM

Iolan Bill Stierwalt will spend the next 75 months in jail for his role in a drunken-driving accident in Gas that injured a Bronson woman.

Allen County District Judge Daniel Creitz “reluctantly” accepted a plea agreement between Allen County Attorney Jerry Hathaway and Stierwalt’s defense attorney, allowing the 75-month jail sentence for aggravated battery, because Kansas sentencing guidelines recommended a 130-month sentence.

The 75-month sentence is 10 months longer than what originally had been agreed to in February 2015, Hathaway explained. That’s because Stierwalt failed to return to court a month after the original plea agreement to begin his sentence.
