WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and killing a teenager has been sentenced to a year in jail for violating his probation by drinking.

The Carroll County Times reports Kevin Paul Smith, 45, of Woodsboro was sentenced Monday by a Carroll County Circuit judge, who heard testimony from a bartender who said she served Smith beer.

On July 19, 2009, Katlynn Bossler, 15, was standing outside of a car parked on the shoulder of Md. 194 across from her home, when a pickup truck driven by Smith struck the left side of the vehicle where she was standing, killing her.

Smith was sentenced to 18 months in jail for that accident.
