Andy Anger Gets 20 Years For Escambia Traffic Death

August 31, 2011

An Escambia County man was sentenced to 20 years in prison Wednesday for a 2010 traffic death.

Last month, Andy Adrian Anger was found guilty by an Escambia County jury of leaving the scene of a crash involving death and driving on a suspended license resulting in death.

On September 28, 2010, Anger was driving on Sorrento Road when he lost control of his vehicle, flipping it several times, according to Eddins. Anger’s passenger, James Burtan McIlhatton, II, was ejected and died at the scene. Anger fled the scene into the woods. Witnesses testified that Anger had been in a bar in Perdido Key earlier that evening. He previously had been convicted three times for driving under the influence and at the time of the accident his license was suspended.

    I knew people that went to prison, right here in this county, that you would have thought could have bought their way out of just about anything, except DUI manslaughter. Never overestimate the power of the dollar, and never underestimate the jury. Good people make bad choices sometimes, and pay the price, as do the people they hurt.

    The most he recieved for the prior dui’s was 10 days in jail, 1 years suspended license and 1 years probation. He’s got 20 years to think about this one.
