Johnson Pleads Guilty In Fatal Accident

A Houston County man accused in the drunk-driving deaths of 2-teenage girls pled guilty.

20-year-old Wellborn Pate Johnson was charged with murder after his pick-up truck collided with a car near Webb in January.

Artia Scoggin and Kimberly Rabon died in the crash.

April Rabon was injured.

Authorities say Johnson’s blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit at the time of the wreck.

Monday, Johnson pled guilty to two counts manslaughter and one count of assault.

He was sentenced to 26-years in prison.

Johnson has applied for probation. A hearing on that is set for January 17th.
