Jury Recommends Maximum Sentence for Pittman
By WestKyStar Staff
BENTON, KY - A jury has recommended the maximum sentence today for Paducah's Tiffany Pittman, who was convicted of 2nd degree manslaughter, 1st degree wanton endangerment, and DUI after a three-day trial in Marshall Circuit Court last week.
Commonwealth Attorney Mark Blankenship confirmed that Pittman faces 10 years for the manslaughter charge, and 5 years for the endangerment charge. The sentences will run consecutively.

She was originally charged with wanton murder after the August 15, 2011 crash on U.S. 68 that killed Stephen J. "Jimmy" Harper. She would have faced up to life in prison if convicted of the original charge.

Pittman's sentence will be formally announced Monday in Marshall Circuit Court by Judge Dennis Foust.
