Anthony Cousins, 25, was sentenced to 12 to 36 months in a state correctional facility, followed by 36 months of probation, $2,500 in fines and 100 hours of community service, after previously pleading guilty on July 18 to felony aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence and misdemeanor DUI controlled substance.
Police said they suspect Cousins was high on cocaine and opiates when his sport utility vehicle slammed into an oncoming Jeep on Route 8.
The other driver, 60 year-old Kenneth Fry of Butler, suffered serious injury as a result of the crash.
In that incident, troopers said they found five empty stamp bags of suspected heroin, three hypodermic needles and a drug-cooking spoon in Cousins’ SUV.
Cousins is a well known needle zombie, having multiple arrests, along with breaking down in court crying as he felt he should not be in jail after his last DUI when a 60 year old was injured.
