An airman based at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, will spend no more than three years behind bars for an April crash of a Humvee that left a 39th Security Forces Squadron comrade dead.

Airman 1st Class Jose J. Aguilar pleaded guilty Nov. 27 to negligent homicide, dereliction of duty and obstruction of justice in the death of Airman 1st Class Floyd Glover, a base news release said. A military judge sentenced Aguilar to three years and nine months in prison, reduction to airman basic, forfeiture of all pay and allowanced and a bad conduct discharge. A pre-trial agreement with prosecutors called for Aguilar to spend no more than three years in confinement.

Aguilar was behind the wheel of the Humvee about 1 p.m. on April 22 when it rolled over. Glover, a passenger, was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

According to the news release, Aguilar drove recklessly at the time of the crash, failing to obey speed limits and stay in the road. He'd also driven the military vehicle and a passenger bus recklessly on "multiple occasions."

Aguilar tried to hide a video camera before authorities arrived at the accident scene, the release said.

In an unsworn statement, Aguilar expressed remorse for his actions, it said.

Glover, 21, grew up in Florida, an obituary in the state's Washington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser said. He is survived by his parents, two sisters and a grandmother.
