Drunken Driver Sent For Treatment

March 05, 1992

A Deale man convicted of auto manslaughter two years ago was orderedto a residential substance-abuse program yesterday for violating theterms of his probation by driving while drunk, a prosecutor said.

William Anthony Brown, 21, was ordered to attend a program known as Teen Challenge, near Princeton, W.Va., said Patrick J. Bell, an assistant state's attorney.

Brown, of the 5800 block of Rockhold Creek Road, was convicted ofauto manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol in the July 1989 death of Marian Barbara Nutwell, Bell said.

The elderly woman was killed while crossing the street near her Galesville home.

Brown was initially sentenced to four years in prison, with all but one year in jail suspended, and was fined $5,000 in that case. Among the conditions for his release on probation was that he would not drive a car.

He was convicted last June of drunken driving and ordered to attend the 28-day residential DWI offenders' facility at the Prince George's County Detention Center, Bell said.
