TULSA – The man convicted of killing three people in a car crash is trying, once again, to get out of prison.

In January of 2016, Steven Jameson was released from prison after a jury convicted him on three counts of vehicular manslaughter.

He was sentenced to 24 years in prison for the fatal crash in 2009. But a judge vacated his sentence because of a statute, passed one month before Jameson was charged, that only allows for a maximum sentence of five years. Jameson was serving eight years on each of the manslaughter charges.

In June, however, an appeals court reversed that decision and he was forced to return behind bars. This week, Jameson’s attorneys requested an application to try and appeal his sentence.
