After appealing his judgment in May, a Newland business owner was sentenced in McDowell County Superior Court this month.

Patrick Todd Burleson, 44, of Johnson Road, Newland, was originally charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle. In May, his attorney Kent Brown tried to get the state to dismiss the charges, which was denied. The judge gave Burleson a 60-day suspended sentence and 12 months unsupervised probation. He was fined $100 and court costs. Burleson appealed the judge’s decision.
