Wilkinsburg man pleaded guilty to 17 charges, sentenced to serve 5 to 10 years in prison


PITTSBURGH — A suburban Pittsburgh man has been sentenced to five to 10 years in prison for driving drunk when he hit three pedestrians and an unrelated case.

Twenty-eight-year-old D.L. Timothy Fullum pleaded guilty in March to 17 charges, including aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence, carrying a firearm without a license and drug charges.

In the first case, officers found a gun and marijuana inside the Wilkinsburg resident's car during a traffic stop in Sept. 2013.

In the second case, police say Fullum struck at least three pedestrians in Pittsburgh while driving under the influence in Oct. 2013. Additionally, someone inside Fullum's car fired several shots out of the window, prompting officer Brendan Nee to shoot inside the vehicle.

Fullum will receive credit for 21 months already served.
