Though years apart, both Ronald O’Kelly and Luis Solano-Barrera pleaded guilty in a Jackson County courtroom to the same crime of involuntary manslaughter. They both took lives while driving drunk.
In an awful twist of fate, all three of those lives taken came from the same family. The biggest difference comes in the punishment. O’Kelly now faces a maximum of 120 days in jail while Solano-Barrera faced 15 years.
