BOZEMAN - A man who served five years of a 20-year sentence in state custody for a drunken-driving crash that killed a high school friend has acknowledged violating conditions of his release.
Brooks Haight, 25, was 17 when he pleaded guilty to negligent homicide for the death of 17-year-old Kelly Morgan in a car crash after Bozeman High's homecoming dance in September 2000.
Based on a report by Haight's probation officer, state prosecutors filed a petition to revoke his 15-year suspended sentence. Haight acknowledged in court Thursday that he drank alcohol, smoked marijuana and lied to his probation officer about his employment and educational status.
District Judge Nels Swandal kept Haight's bail at the $50,000 he set during an earlier hearing. The judge is expected to rule on the petition in February.
