No early release for Derek Quebedeaux

A man who pleaded guilty to killing three people while driving drunk will not have his sentence reduced.

Relatives of the victims expressed relief Wednesday.

"As far as I'm concerned, he did something wrong, there's a consequence for it," said one relative.

"He could do a million in things in jail. It's not going to bring back Beth. It's not going to being back Ryan.  It's not going to being back Maxine, said Lindsey Prima, a victim's cousin.

In February of 2011, Derek Quebedeaux received a 12-year-sentence for driving into a crowd with an alcohol level twice the legal limit.

Two Southeastern Louisiana University students, Beth Boudreau and Maxime Profit, and former Southeastern football player Ryan Lowe, III were killed.

Wednesday, his lawyer Mike Thiel told a judge that Quebedeaux accepts responsibility for his actions.

Thiel then asked that his client be given credit for time served while under house arrest and released early from the Tangipahoa Parish Prison in Amite.

"Anyone can relate to the fact that someone in prison wants to diminish the time that they have to spend, said Thiel.

The judge declined to review the matter, which means Quebedeaux will have to serve out the remainder of his sentence.
