(Desloge, Mo) - Charges have now been filed after a crash Saturday night that killed a Bonne Terre man.  

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 23-year-old Bradley Judge, of Desloge, has been charged with "DWI-death of another", over the crash on Vo-Tech Road that killed 21-year-old Ian Rasnic, of Bonne Terre.

According to the probable cause statement, Trooper Dooley arrived on the scene at approximately 9:32 pm, and saw a white Chevrolet 2500 truck off the right edge of the road, lying on its passenger side. St. Francois County Sheriff's Deputy Shumate told the trooper that the driver was sitting on the tailgate of another pickup, being treated by medical staff. 

The trooper indicated in the statement that he smelled a faint odor of alcohol while speaking to Judge. He also allegedly observed Judge’s pupils were constricted, and his eyes were watery. A warrant was obtained to get a blood sample of Judge's blood while he was being treated at Parkland Health Center for injuries he sustained in the crash.

A warrant was also issued Monday and a $5,000 cash or surety bond was set. Judge posted bond and was released Monday morning. Judge is now prohibited from consuming alcohol and must obtain an alcohol monitoring device while out on bond.

Judge could face up to 10 years in prison if he is found guilty according to state statutes.
