Stilwell man sentenced to federal prison for drunken crash that injured two passengers

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that a Stilwell man was sentenced to one year in prison for two counts of assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Jeremy David Croley, 47, entered a guilty plea to the crime that took place in 2018. He was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison, followed by a year of home confinement.

Charges against Croley arose after a probe by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Croley crossed the center line on Bell Road in Adair County Sept. 15, 2018, and crashed into a vehicle head-on. Troopers observed Crosley unsteady on his feet and slurring his words. It was determined that the man was “well over” the .08 blood alcohol limit.

“Date retrieved from Croley’s vehicle showed he had failed to brake in the eight seconds prior to impact. Two passengers in the oncoming vehicle suffered severe bodily injuries from the impact,” the press release stated.

Honorable Judge Charles B. Goodwin presided over the hearing and Assistant United States Attorney Kevin Gross prosecuted the case.
