Glenn Walbolt was sentenced to 12 years in prison Tuesday afternoon for his role in the deaths of two Grand Rapids teens in February.
Bates also ordered Walbolt to pay restitution to the court for costs which totaled more than $8,400. His driver's license was suspended for life.
Polen was a sophomore at Otsego High School, while Todd attended Penta Career Center and Otsego was his home school. Both teens along with Walbolt resided at Grand Rapids Village Estates mobile home park on Wapakoneta Road, about a mile from the crash site.
According to Jeff Lingo, a Lucas County prosecutor for the case, after the fatal crash, Walbolt's blood alcohol level tested as high as 0.202 more than twice the legal limit of 0.80. He also tested positive for use of marijuana. Lingo said the test showed nearly twice the amount in his system to be legally intoxicated.
