6 1/2-year sentence for fatal Federal Way crash

A Federal Way man who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide for driving drunk and causing a December crash that killed a passenger in his car was sentenced today to 6 1/2 years in prison.

Jeffrey Waterfall, 56, drove a 2003 Ford Mustang into a telephone pole in the 29000 block of Redondo Way South on Dec. 23 in Federal Way, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Kurtis D. Nevin, 52, was killed in the crash.

When Waterfall was taken to a hospital to be evaluated, testing indicated he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.232 percent, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
