Georgia man Bo Dukes was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Friday for interfering in the investigation of the 2005 disappearance and apparent murder of beauty queen and teacher Tara Grinstead. Prosecutors say he helped alleged murderer Ryan Alexander Duke (no relation) hide the body. Jurors convicted him on Thursday of two counts of giving false statements, one count of hindering the apprehension or punishment of a criminal, and one count of concealing a death. Both Dukes and Duke had been Grinstead’s students in high school.
