A man has been sentenced in a stunning plea deal in McMinn County Criminal Court. Authorities say 28-year-old Kenneth J. Hampton of Loudon was originally charged with vehicular homicide, a Class B felony, when he ran his vehicle off of County Road 360 back in 2015 resulting in the death of his passenger, 47-year-old Mark Hampton of Athens. Kenneth was later indicted by a grand jury for Class A felony aggravated vehicular homicide. He faced 12 years in prison for the crime but in the sentencing hearing held, the judge gave him 12 years community corrections to run consecutively with a parole violation in Loudon County. Hampton was also ordered to wear a transdermal alcohol monitoring device and lose his driver’s license for three years.
