Stilwell man sentenced for involuntary manslaughter in 2022 fatal crash

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that a Stilwell man was sentenced to prison for involuntary manslaughter in Indian Country.

Bradley Jordan Eagle-Tate, 31, was sentenced to 36 months in prison for one count of involuntary manslaughter.

Charges against Eagle-Tate arose after a probe by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

On June 27, 2022, Eagle-Tate crossed into oncoming traffic on State Highway 100 in a no-passing zone and clipped a vehicle before hitting another vehicle head-on. The driver of the second vehicle died and a passenger of the first vehicle was injured. Eagle-Tate said he had multiple drugs in his system at the time of the fatal crash.

Eagle-Tate pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter Sept. 22, 2023.

Honorable Judge Ronald A. White presided over the hearing and Eagle-Tate was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending transportation to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to serve a non-paroleable sentence. Assistant United States Attorney Kevin Gross prosecuted the case.
