Marijuana, Meth, and Driving Results in 36 Year Prison Sentence

Troy Glassford

Troy Steven Glassford, DOB: 10-9-78, appeared in Jefferson County District Court on September 10, 2018 where was sentenced to 36 years in prison for the vehicular homicide death of 43-year-old Nathan Osburn.

On January 10, 2018 Arvada police were called to the area of Pomona Drive and Quay Drive on the report of a pedestrian having been hit by a car. When police arrived they found that the vehicle driven by Mr. Glassford had been driving eastbound on Pomona drive when it left the roadway, crashed through a fence and then a shed, running over Mr. Osburn in the process. He died of his injuries.

Mr. Osburn, a father of four, had been out for a walk in his neighborhood.

Glassford told police that he had been on a methamphetamine binge the day before which caused him to fall asleep at the wheel. He also said that he had used more methamphetamine earlier that day. Toxicology reports showed that Glassford had almost twice the legal amount of marijuana and a high level of amphetamine in his system at the time of the collision.

On July 23, 2018 Mr. Glassford pled guilty to Vehicular Homicide – DUI (F3) and one habitual criminal count. He has four prior felony convictions and was sentenced as a habitual criminal.

“This is a tragedy which could have been prevented if not for Mr. Glassford’s decision, and the deadly consequences of driving under the influence of drugs.” said DA Pete Weir. “Mr. Osburn was simply enjoying his life and raising his children when he was cut down in his prime. To ensure the safety of our community we must incarcerate repeat offenders for as long as possible.”
