A mountain of evidence presented against Kendall Batchelor during her trial on a charge of intoxication manslaughter resulted in a jury handing down the maximum sentence: 20 years behind bars and a $10,000 fine.
Batchelor was sentenced by a Kendall County jury Wednesday in the second-degree felony case.
June 2, 2022, Batchelor got drunk and drove her Ford F-250 down Texas 46. Just before 10 p.m. that night she hit the sedan of longtime Boerne resident David John Belter, killing him.
Belter’s family shared how Batchelor’s actions impacted them and what the loss means to them after the sentence was handed down in the 451st state District Court.
