He faced a maximum sentence of 20 years.

90th District Attorney Dee Hudson Peavey said Gilmore’s poor health factored into the plea agreement.

The DPS said Gilmore was driving on FM 2179 in Graham on April 14, 2020, and went off the road on a curve, going into a ditch and rolling several times.

One passenger, Derek Morgan, 43, of graham died and a female passenger suffered severe injuries.

Troopers said Gilmore fled the scene of the accident and was later found and taken to a hospital.

According to news reports, he then left the hospital and a month later was arrested in Nevada by officers investigating a drunk driver report.

Gilmore has several previous arrests of DWI and also reckless driving, resisting arrest, drug possession, bail jumping and public intoxication.
