Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man admits his girlfriend would be alive today, if not for his actions.

Anthony Brigmon accepted a plea deal Monday on charges of manslaughter, driving under the influence and criminal mischief.

In court Monday, Brigmon admitted that he was drunk when he crashed his car into a utility pole, killing his passenger, Stephanie Goebel. 

The crash happened early on a Sunday morning in March of 2014 on Mount Holly Road near Fairdale Road.

Prosecutors recommended a sentence of seven years in prison for the manslaughter charge, five years for criminal mischief and 30 days for driving under the influence.

Under the deal, Brigmon will serve all the sentences at the same time.

Brigmon has been ordered to remain on home incarceration until he is sentenced in October.
