in Deadly TapouT Crash
53-year-old Jeffrey David Kirby was convicted today of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated -- a felony -- for causing the high speed crash that killed TapouT founder Charles "Mask" Lewis back in March 2009.
As we first reported, Lewis' $300,000 Ferrari was ripped in half after it careened off an Orange County road -- hitting a light pole, and killing him nearly instantly.
Kirby faces a maximum of 13 years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for February next year.
