A Granada Hills man was sentenced Monday to 32 days behind bars for the DUI crash at an Agua Dulce off-road vehicle park that killed his girlfriend, an official with the District Attorney’s office said Tuesday.

Ian Pike, 26, pleaded no contest last month to one count of vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence. He was accused of being under the influence while driving a 1996 Jeep Cherokee when it tumbled down a 1,500-foot embankment at Rowher Flats on Jan. 10, resulting in the death of Jacquelyn Cork, 25, of Redlands, D.A. spokesman Ricardo Santiago said.

Pike was sentenced three years probation, 32 days in jail, 50 days of community labor, and was ordered to enter an six-month alcohol program and pay a restitution that has yet to be determined, Santiago said.

Pike was arrested in January; in February, he pleaded not guilty to charges of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. He could have faced 10 years in prison.

Pike was not in the vehicle as it tumbled down the steep embankment and was hospitalized. Cork was the only passenger in the vehicle, according to CHP officials.

Pike’s vehicle was found 1,500 feet below at the bottom of the ravine. Five days later, officials utilized the help of Timberline Helicopters to assist with the recovery of the vehicle. The crew had to use a K-Max helicopter and an external load-sling to recover the vehicle from the ravine.

California Highway Patrol officers worked with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office to investigate the collision.

  13. He was behind bars on a DUI that resulted in a death, and he gets 32 days! WOW! Unreal! And if I’m not mistaken, I believe he had priors. I honestly do not get this sentencing. Disgusting! He’ll be right back out there on the streets, doing the same thing! How sad for this young girl and her family!

  16. Gee Hawd says:

    Thats one hell of a lawyer.

  17. Did anyone read the entire article?
    It says that he was not in the vehicle when she was killed.

  18. Are you effing serious? Wow!
    It sounds like it was planned murder he miraculously wasn’t in the car
    I hope her family sues him for wrongful death they will win

  19. Nick Pavelka says:

    I got in a fistfight and got in more trouble than he did

  20. What a piece of work! This guy gets a DUI, kills his Girlfriend, but, gets away with murder because he was NOT found in the vehicle? He probably jumped out when he knew he was headed down the hill!

  21. Ashley Avila says:

    It says he wasn’t in the vehicle!? They need to tell more of the story

  22. Danny Dang says:

  23. He’s scary looking!

  24. Denice Lyke says:

    So let me get this straight… Did he not admit to being the driver and that’s why such a BS sentence??

  25. Denice Lyke says:

    Raju… He will then sponge off the taxpayers…. If he can’t get a job… I’m really starting to question mankind…

  26. Susan Olmos says:

    How was he not in the car??

  27. Laura Conant says:

    Unbelievable. This sentence is a joke. Can we sign a petition to remove SCVs DA?

  28. Irma Blanco says:

    Amazing! No justice ?

  29. Nadia Napa says:

    Wow 32 days!??…thats all he got?? Smh …maybe God has a bigger punishment for him! Etta

  30. Don Hoffman says:

    I’m asking the same question I asked when this first happened? WTH is a girl like her doing with a POS like him? I hope she has a brother, father, uncle or anyone that can pick up where the court left off.

  31. What B. S. Our justice systems stinks. Hugs

  32. Vanessa Mendoza and Mirna Portillo am I crazy or do you guys recognize this man from work? Even his gf I recognize ?

  33. Not 32 days. What’s sad is he will do half of this sentence. And if he’s been in custody they will give him those days as well. He will be out in a week. Poor girl.

  34. He looks familiar. Maybe he had come here to work b4

  35. Alan Duvo says:

    Evil ?’s…….

  36. 32 days? Did I read that right? I would be extremely mad if I was that girls family.

  37. I don’t understand. He was not in the car when it rolled ? Did he jump out before it went down the cliff?

  38. He should get life for jumping out and leaving his girl friend to die. So sad for her family. Prayers to them

  39. 32 days!! Is this right??? WTF!!!!

  40. That’s disgusting! He is 100% responsible and his social media posts after are just appalling! What an incredible FAIL on this case! He won’t even serve that entire sentence. This poor family

  41. Lori Braley says:

    WHAT? How can that be?

  42. 32 days?? Probably only do 5 days… if that..?!

  43. That’s so not right. What is this country coming to?
    We will self implode…

  44. am i drunk…i kill you…i will use the excuse that i didnt know what i was doing…i killed youl…but i didnt know that i was THAT drunk…i killed you….WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE ? VERDICT ????

  45. John Gilbert says:

    With Prop 47. he”ll probably be out by….Hey! He’s gone ! http://www.youareinnocent.com/expungements/

  46. Wow only 32 days!!!! . Love our justice system NOT

  47. Keith Dill says:

    Awesome Town!! WTF

  48. Sooner or later they will find out payback is a b****

  49. Eric Baker says:

    32 days will be more like 10 days.

  50. Dan OConnell says:

    If you ever get in trouble, find out who this guy’s attorney is and hire him quick! The article doesn’t say who is responsible for letting this guy go free…the person(s) responsible for this crime against justice. I wonder if Ms. Cork (the deceased girlfriend) has any family who will step forward in this matter. Get drunk, kill your girlfriend and get 32 days WTF????????????

  51. Mark Barrett says:

    “No Contest” means I am guilty, but I don’t accept the consequences of my actions. Chalk one up for the DA’s political career.

  52. Sally Rivera says:

    Someone PLEASE Tell Me That’s A Typo…32 Days????

  53. 0 no im following this

  54. Brian Fisher says:

    Justice system is broken

  55. Kelly Parco says:

    Who did this pos pay off. How sad. I feel for her family, they must be livid. Their is no justice.

  56. The drunk driver that killed my sister and her boyfriend served about 2 years . The justice system sucks

  57. Dan OConnell says:

    The article states he was not in the vehicle when it plunged over the cliff with his girlfriend inside. The a__hole jumps out and sends his girlfriend to her death. The jerks who gave this guy 32 days would probably see fit to give Osama Bin Laden nine months. SCV News, please investigate just how he got off so lightly.

    • SCVNews.com says:

      How? Because the voters elected the district attorney candidate who wasn’t going to lock everybody up. People should remember this the next time there’s an election for district attorney. But they won’t.

  58. Kurt Wilson says:

    Wow when will people understand rower flats is VERY dangerous and then u gonna booze it up?? Dear Judge: how can you “justify” your sentence

  59. Yum! What is Wrong with the Justice System? 32 days to Death, which one is worse? Death from a Drunk Drive and only gets 32 days and 3 yrs Probation. Sad day!

  60. That’s it!?! You’ve got to be kidding me.

  61. 32 days??? He took someone’s life!!! Why?

  62. mboron says:

    This is the Value of Lives in the Legal System of
    the United States?? What a farce!
