Sentence reconsidered for drunk driver

POSTED October 19, 2009 3:12 p.m.
A superior court judge in Sonoma County is reconsidering the 12-year prison sentence given to the son of the Merced County District Attorney for a drunk driving conviction.
Judge Kenneth Gnoss recalled Dylan Morse’s sentence during a hearing on Wednesday, according to the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office. Morse, who already started serving his 12 year and four month prison sentence, will be returned to Sonoma County for a new sentencing hearing on Nov. 4.
California law grants judges 120 days to reconsider a sentence. Gnoss can either uphold the sentence, or give Morse less time. He cannot give him a longer sentence.
Morse was sentenced July 15 for a drunk driving conviction that left a 22-year-old man dead and a 19-year-old in an ongoing coma.
The California Highway Patrol said Morse, who was 18 at the time, had a blood alcohol level of 0.15 percent and had open beer cans and marijuana in his vehicle.
