The Fortville man convicted of killing two construction workers in a 2014 highway work zone crash was re-sentenced to seven years in prison on Wednesday following a two-day hearing. Jordan Stafford was originally sentenced in August 2016 to 10 years in prison on two counts of reckless operation of a vehicle in a highway work zone causing death. Attorneys for Stafford appealed the sentence, arguing that their client’s one act of reckless driving could not sustain two convictions. In August 2017, the Indiana Court of Appeals agreed, sending the case back to a Marion County judge to re-sentence Stafford.
