Former TV News Anchor Out Of North Carolina Prison

A former television news anchor has been released from prison, two years after a fatal drunken driving accident in North Carolina.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that a prison official said former WXII-TV reporter and anchor Tolly Carr was released from a state prison in McLeansville around 1 a.m. Monday.

Prosecutors alleged that Carr's blood alcohol level was two to three times the legal limit for driving when he lost control of his pickup in March 2007 and struck 26-year-old Casey Bokhoven, who was walking near a construction zone. A passenger in Carr's vehicle was injured.

Carr pleaded guilty to felony death by vehicle and other charges in August 2007, and must begin paying restitution next May. Both Carr and Bokhoven's family declined the newspaper's request for interviews.
