A jury has recommended a 15-year sentence for a 20-year-old western Kentucky woman convicted of manslaughter and drunken driving in a fatal crash.

The Paducah Sun reports formal sentencing for Tiffany Pittman was set for Monday in Marshall Circuit Court. She was convicted last week in the 2011 crash that killed 46-year-old Stephen J. "Jimmy" Harper.

The jury's recommendation on Tuesday came after emotional testimony from Harper's sons.

Tevin Harper, who is 18, testified that his pain is indescribable since losing his father. Staring steadily at Pittman, he said he has forgiven her, but that she deserves punishment for her actions.

Dallas Harper, who is 26, said he was pleased that the jury recommended the maximum sentence.
