Missoula Man Who Received No Jail Time For Fatal Crash Arrested
A Missoula man who was given a 20-year suspended prison sentence last week for his role in a drunken-driving crash that killed a woman is accused of violating his probation by doing drugs and hanging out with convicted felons.
21-year-old Joshua Jacob-Allen Thielbar was arrested Tuesday for allegedly using morphine without a prescription. His bail is $100,000.
District Judge John Larson sentenced Thielbar on Oct. 11 and warned him it was a “zero-tolerance” sentence.
Thielbar pleaded guilty in July to vehicular homicide while under the influence in the death of 22-year-old Rachel Millhouse.
Prosecutors say he was traveling 80 mph in town at the time of the Feb. 20 crash. A security video from a nearby bar shows Millhouse’s car rolling through a stop sign.
Court records say she also was legally drunk.
