A small group of inmates were recently sent from Garvin County jail to begin serving their sentences in prison.
Among them was Jack Wilson Cesar Jr., 57, of Norman, who was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in the death of a passenger in a traffic accident on Sept. 23, 2018.
Cesar was the driver of a vehicle that crashed off a highway near the Stephens County line a few miles from Elmore City resulting in the death of Joseph Whitaker.
State troopers testifying in a court hearing said they concluded the cause of the fatality accident was “DUI” as tests showed Cesar had 0.213 percent blood-alcohol content in his system. He also tested positive for opioids.
In a plea agreement Cesar was given a 30-year term with 15 of that time to be spent in prison.
