Allegan County Circuit Court Judge Kevin Cronin on Friday sentenced 25-year-old Jeffrey Hinds to 38 months to 15 years in prison.

Hinds had pleaded no contest in March to a charge of reckless driving causing death.

Chad Bradbury and 22-year-old Michael Stille died Sept. 29, 2011, after the sport utility vehicle they were riding in went airborne and slammed into a house in Fillmore Township, south of Holland. Hinds was driving.

The 24-year-old Bradbury was to be married two days later. The trio was on their way to a pre-wedding dinner party at the time of the crash.
