NASSAU, N.Y. (AP) — A Rensselaer (rehn-suh-LEER’) County man has been sentenced to up to 25 years in prison for a fatal drunken driving crash and ordered to pay for his friend’s headstone.

Edward Ferguson, of Nassau (NAS’-saw), was convicted in February of 12 counts in the July 2015 crash that killed his friend, 28-year-old Christopher Sharpley, of West Sand Lake.

Investigators say Ferguson made a left turn in front of a car driven by 47-year-old Terry Metcalf, of Scotia, who was injured.

Ferguson was convicted of vehicular homicide, assault, drunken driving and other charges.

He was sentenced Monday to 8 to 25 years in prison and ordered to pay for a headstone for Sharpley, who was celebrating his birthday the night he died.
