Charleston, SC -- Former Lt. Governor Mark Taylor's son will plead guilty to a felony drunken driving charge within the next few days, according to his attorney.  

Twenty-three-Year-old Fletcher Taylor is charged with killing his best friend, Joseph Victor Gennert, in a crash in August of 2005. He was driving his sport utility vehicle along Interstate 26 when it hit a retaining wall on an on ramp and flipped, throwing his friend from the vehicle.

The prosecutor assigned to the case confirmed he would not reduce the charge from felony drunken driving.

Taylor, a former College of Charleston student, was charged with felony driving under the influence, which carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison.
