LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- 32-year-old Wesley Bradshaw is expected to receive 15 years behind bars after pleading guilty earlier this month to driving under the influence and killing a prominent southern Indiana philanthropist.

Bradshaw's been behind bars since the November 2011 crash on State Road 111 near New Albany.  Police say he crossed the center line and slammed into a car driven by Duke Energy manager Kevin Hammersmith.

Hammersmith was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Under a plea agreement, Bradshaw is expected to get a 15-year sentence, with 12 years to serve and three years suspended.
