07/28/2019: "Orcas Man Sentenced To 6.5 Years For Vehicular Homicide"


Friday July 26, 2019 at 1:30 pm at the San Juan County Superior Court, Judge Kathryn Loring, Presiding, Mr. Tucker Abdon was sentenced to 6 ½ years in prison for vehicle homicide when driving on September 5th of 2018, while under the influence of alcohol he left the road and hit a tree. Rachel B. Gibson, 32 was flown to Harborview, where she died as a result of her injuries on September the 7th.


Mr. Abdon test results showed a blood alcohol level of .141. Abdon had pleaded not guilty, but later changed his plea, and accepted an Alford plea, to avoid a possible death penalty, which while unlikely, was possible, given the penalty in Washington State for vehicular homicide is 78 to 102 months, with a maximum of confinement for life.
