Slew was sentenced to 12 months on each of six counts of count last Friday in the Home Circuit Court.
However, the sentences are to run concurrently over a one-year period,
He was also disqualified from holding a driver's licence for a period of five years.
The allegations were that Slew was driving a blue 2012 Suzuki Vitara jeep that plunged into the Rio Cobre at about 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 16, 2016, after he reportedly misjudged the turn onto the Flat Bridge.
The jeep, which was owned by 43-year-old Bishop Stephen Ricketts, who died in the incident, was carrying eight persons at the time.
The other persons who drowned were: Bishop Ricketts’ two sons, Shevaughnie and Sujay of Commodore district in St Catherine; 29-year-old Benjamin Ellis and 21-year-old Shantel Morris of Tawes Pen, also in the parish; and O’Neil Robinson.
The other survivor of the incident was 19-year-old Shane Harris of Tawes Pen.
All the passengers in the vehicle were members of a revivalists group from the Mount Maria Zion Truth Fellowship Spiritual Church of God in Commodore.
It was understood that they were going home to Commodore with the bishop for a church trip to Hanover the following day.
The police said Slew fled the crash scene, but turned himself in on Sunday, July 17.
