Hundley to spend 15 days a year for five years in jail

Published 8:54 pm Tuesday, February 7, 2017

The former Danville police officer involved in a DUI wreck last year learned his fate on Tuesday, as he stood before Circuit Court Judge Darren Peckler.

Hundley was given a five-year diversion agreement and was sentenced to serve 15 days a year for those five years in the Boyle County Detention Center. The days will be served on weekends, and Hundley will be monitored the remainder of the time through probation and parole. Hundley also has to pay $200 restitution to the victim, Dwayne Brown.

Hundley pleaded guilty to two counts of wanton endangerment and one count of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence in January. Initially, he was charged with second-degree assault, which was amended to the second count of wanton endangerment. He was also charged with contempt, which was dismissed.

The charges could later be expunged from his record.

Hundley’s charges stem from a Feb. 27, 2016, crash in which he was driving under the influence of alcohol. He and his passenger, Shaun Boyd, were heading east on Ky. 2168 when Hundley lost control of his Ford Mustang, which crossed the highway and collided with a Ram pickup truck driven by Dwayne Brown, who was heading west.

Hundley and Boyd were taken to the hospital following the crash, but there were no serious injuries according to initial reports.
