Idaho man appeals lifetime driving ban

BOISE, Idaho -- A man who was convicted of vehicular manslaughter after he ran over a child who had been sitting on his front bumper will get a chance to argue that a lifetime suspension of his driver's license is excessive.
Teddy Lynn Edghill was convicted in eastern Idaho's Bear Lake County in connection with the 1997 death of a child. He was placed on probation after spending a short time in prison and his driver's license was suspended for life.
Edghill told the Idaho Court of Appeals that he believes a provision barring him from asking to have his license reinstated is illegal. The court agreed that the sentence was illegal in part, and now Edghill's driving privileges will be the subject of a new sentencing hearing in 6th District Court.
