On Dec. 20, Delta resident Aaron Weedman was sentenced to a four-year sentence in the Colorado Department of Corrections. Weedman pleaded guilty to vehicular assault -- under the influence, a class 4 felony, and aggravated motor vehicle theft, also a class 4 felony.

On May 7, 2016, Weedman drove a stolen Hot Water Productions truck into the residence of the Piatt family as they were sleeping, almost hitting their two young daughters and causing serious bodily injury to Blake Piatt. Weedman admitted to being under the influence of alcohol.

His plea agreement involved pleas of guilty to the most serious charged in the criminal complaint. The plea agreement further provided for open sentencing with a possible prison sentence of up to six years, which is the maximum in the presumptive range for these two class 4 felonies. Weedman was previously convicted of two felonies, felony menacing and burglary.

According to a press release from the Office of the District Attorney, 7th Judicial District, Weedman's actions caused extensive property damage to two local businesses, and caused significant injury and trauma to the Piatt family. "The Montrose Police Department and other first responders did a great job dealing with the damage and personal injury caused by the defendant's conduct at several crime scenes and the follow-up thorough investigation," DA Dan Hotsenpiller said.
