An Elloree man is serving a 30-day jail sentence after he pleaded guilty to felony driving under the influence resulting in great bodily injury.

Derrick Shivers, 55, of 1119 Harlin Street, pleaded guilty last month before Circuit Judge Ed Dickson.

Dickson sentenced him to 15 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.

The sentence was suspended to 30 days at the Orangeburg County Detention Center and a $5,100 fine.

Dickson gave Shivers credit for already serving one day in jail.

The incident happened on May 1, 2019.

Shivers’ 2001 Dodge pickup truck went through a traffic control device and struck a Chevrolet pickup truck driven by a 48-year-old Santee man.

The Santee man suffered broken bones as a result of the collision.

In other pleas:

• Edward Felix Carson Jr., 42, of 110 Big Oak Drive, Holly Hill, pleaded guilty to second-offense possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.

Dickson sentenced him to prison for five years and gave him credit for having already served 284 days in jail.

A grand jury indicted him on the charge of third-offense possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.

As a result of Carson’s plea agreement, prosecutors dismissed the following charges: second-offense trafficking in methamphetamine or cocaine base, distribution of methamphetamine, third or subsequent offense of possession with intent to distribute a scheduled drug and three counts of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance within close proximity to a school.

A judge dismissed the following charges at Carson’s preliminary hearing: first-offense trafficking in heroin, first-offense trafficking in methamphetamine or cocaine base, first-offense trafficking in cocaine, first-offense distribution of methamphetamine and two counts of first-offense possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
