Kamiah man indicted for involuntary manslaughter in October crash that killed passenger
Nicholas P. Allman, 22 of Kamiah, was arraigned Thursday in United States District Court on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, according to U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson.
"Allman was indicted on Nov. 15, 2012, by a federal grand jury sitting in Boise," said Olson. "The indictment alleges that on October 29, 2011, Allman was driving recklessly and under the influence of alcohol on Harris Ridge Road, which is located on the Nez Perce Indian Reservation."
The indictment said that Allman had failed to keep his vehicle on the road, which resulted in the crash. Allman's passenger, James Oatman, Jr. was killed as a result of the crash.
According to Olson, Allman could face up to eight years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release.
