Sheriff's Deputy Sentenced to Jail in DWI Crash

BUFFALO, NY-An Erie County Sheriff's' deputy will find out what life is like on the other side of a prison cell after a judge sentenced him to jail in a DWI crash that seriously injured a Tonawanda man.

Erie County Court judge Timothy Franczyk Wednesday sentenced Michael Haug, 29, to a term of 2-6 years following his plea late last year to a charge of first degree vehicular assault.
