Plea Bargain in Senn Trial


A Coffee County jury was sent home after the defendant who was charged with murder plea-bargained a deal to lesser charges.

Thirty-three-year-old Jason Senn pled guilty to two-counts of manslaughter in the deaths of 20-year-old Jeremy Jackson and his 18-year-old girlfriend, Amber Ogburn.

Senn had been on trial for two counts of murder.

In February 2006, he was the driver of a pickup truck that ran off the road and hit a tree.

It happened several miles south of the Jack community.

Jackson and Ogburn were passengers and died in the wreck.

The state claimed Senn was driving under the influence.

Under the plea bargain, Senn will serve three years in jail and then be placed on probation.

Sentencing is scheduled for next month.
