CHILTON, WI (WTAQ) - The man convicted of hitting a group of motorcyclists in a 2012 crash will spend eight years in prison.
27-year-old Clinton Lovelace of Hilbert pled guilty last September to two counts of homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle. Lovelace also made an Alford plea to 3 counts of second-degree reckless injury. That means a defendant does not admit guilty, but agrees prosecutors have enough evidence to obtain a conviction.
Lovelace was under the influence of drugs when he drove over the center line on Highway 151 in Fond du Lac County and into a group of 10 motorcyclists from Michigan. Two people were killed and several others were injured.
The judge also gave Lovelace 15 years extended supervision and seven years on probation for the crime.
