    50 Years for Motorcycle Deaths

    As expected, Andrew Schlichtemeier was sentenced Thursday to 50 years in prison for killing four friends who were riding motorcycles home from a trip.
    Schlichtemeier, 22, had pleaded guilty Feb. 10 to driving drunk when his pickup truck veered into four oncoming motorcyclists on Interstate 29 last Aug. 9.
    I will forever be remorseful, he told the judge in February. I am at fault.

    Schlichtemeier, of Murray, Neb., was sentenced Thursday on four counts of vehicular homicide. Each count carries a penalty of 25 years in prison. In a plea deal, Schlichtemeier will serve 50 years two consecutive 25-year sentences and two more 25-year sentences to be served at the same time. Legal experts have said he could be paroled in 10 to 20 years.

    What? You're expecting people to be accountable for their actions? He was drunk...not his fault.


    (hopefully the jimlad will not be needed)

    No jimlad necessary. What a sad story and a pathetic outcome. Sure the guy didn't intend to kill anyone but when you get hammered and drive you know full well when you start that car up that you are putting yourself and others in danger. Sounds like a "willful" act to me.
