    Guilty Plea in Deaths of 4 Cyclists

    Andrew Schlichtemeier, the motorist accused in the Aug. 9 deaths of four motorcyclists near Little Sioux, Iowa, entered a written plea of guilty in the case on Monday, according to state court records.
    Details were not available Monday evening. An attempt to reach Schlichtemeierís attorney Steve Lefler of Omaha was not successful.
    A deal has been in the works for some time. A plea hearing was scheduled in January for Feb. 10.
    ďI knew it was going to happen, so itís not a surprise,Ē Suzie Bock, sister of motorcyclist Jay Bock, said Monday evening. ďIt somehow feels ó good isnít the right word ó but itís nice someone on his side is finally saying the word, guilty, since it was so blatant.Ē

    I wonder what the sentence will be? 40 years?

    It will probably be a significant sentence, but not the maximum allowable given the agreement to plead guilty. One of the reports that I have heard is that there could be an agreement to serve 2 of the 4 sentences concurrently which would be a 25% reduction in the total time.

    Re: Guilty Plea in Deaths of 4 Cyclists

    Update. Prosecutors asking for 50 years.

    Prosecutors are recommending that the pickup truck driver accused in the deaths of four motorcyclists in a crash near Little Sioux, Iowa, be sentenced to 50 years in prison.
    Andrew Schlichtemeier, 22, faces four counts of vehicular homicide in the deaths of Jay Bock, of Omaha; Steven Benscoter of Pacific Junction, Iowa; and Dale Aspedon and Dennis Chaney, both of Glenwood, Iowa.
    The four were returning from Sturgis, S.D., when the collision occurred on Aug. 9, 2010.
    The maximum sentence on each charge is 25 years in prison.
    According to a plea agreement filed Monday with the district court for Harrison County, prosecutors recommend that Schlichtemeier be sentenced to the maximum on each count, with two terms running consecutively and the other two being served at the same time.
