Judge Rules in Casey Bloom Probation Hearing

A man convicted of DUI manslaughter for killing a Bay County teenager in 1995 will not be getting off of his probation early.

Lawyers for Casey Bloom were trying to get his probation terminated early. In 1996, bloom was convicted of DUI manslaughter in the 1995 death of Donn'elle McGraw.

Bloom served 11 months of a 22-month jail sentence, followed by probation, which is supposed to end in 2011. Bloom's lawyers say he's completing dental school and needs to clean up his record for future opportunities.

Circuit Judge Glenn Hess told the court hearing Tuesday, despite Bloom's perfect probation record, he's not getting off early, because state guidelines call for a minimum 14-year sentence.
