A male drunk driver who killed a 34-year-old woman with a blood alcohol concentration more than twice the legal limit has been handed an unusual sentence.
23-year-old Texas man Travis Elwell killed 34-year-old Emily Javadi in 2015 when his speeding BMW crashed into her car as she was loading items into it after a workout.
Javadi died from her injuries an hour after the crash. Elwell reportedly had a blood alcohol content of 0.175 at the time of the accident.
Last week, Elwell was sentenced to serve 120 days in jail over the death. But the way in which he will serve his time is rather unusual, the Dallas Morning News reports.
He will serve serve one week in jail each year, coinciding with the anniversary of Emily Javadi's death on February 10, for the next nine years.
