MISSOULA - The Lolo man who was convicted of driving drunk and killing a pedestrian in 2010 wants the Montana Supreme Court Sentence Review Division to take a look at his case.
Brian Holm is serving a 15 year prison sentence for the death of Brian Beaver. In a Facebook post, Beaver's family says Holm wants his sentence reduced or thrown out.
Holm reported to the Missoula County jail in April to start serving his sentence after the judge in the case had allowed him to remain free during the appeals process and for medical reasons.
Beaver and two of his friends were on the sidewalk near Brooks and Paxon in November of 2010 when investigators say Holm crossed several lanes of traffic, drove onto the sidewalk and hit Beaver from behind.
Holm's hearing before the review board is set for Friday, Aug. 2 at the state prison in Deer Lodge.
