A Springfield man has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter for a 2007 drunk driving crash that killed an elderly man.

After three hours of deliberation a Greene County jury found twenty three year-old Jeremy W. Arata, 23, guilty today of slamming his car into seventy eight year-old Paul Fain's vehicle as he pulled away from a stop sign at Weller and Dale on November 15, 2007.

Court records say Arata's vehicle had at times reached speeds of 60 in the residential area before the crash and the man's blood alcohol level was .146% - .08% is the legal limit in Missouri.
Arata, who already has a drunk driving conviction and is on probation for leaving the scene of an accident, faces between five to fifteen years behind bars when he is sentenced on August 5th.
