Plea deal reached in fatal motorcycle group crash
Man is convicted in 2012 crash that killed 2 Mich. motorcyclists
A Wisconsin man has been convicted for slamming his car into a group of Michigan motorcyclists last year, killing two of them.
As part of a plea deal, 26-year-old Clinton Lovelace of Hilbert pleaded no contest Tuesday to charges of killing someone by negligent operation of a vehicle.
In his Alford plea to separate reckless injury charges, Lovelace did not admit he was guilty, but did agree prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.
Lovelace faced 12 felonies after crashing into a group of riders on a Fond du Lac highway in May 2012. Daniel Winsemius and Douglas Yonkers died as a result of the crash. Eight others were hurt.
WLUK-TV reports Lovelace faces a potential 40 years behind bars. Sentencing is set for Feb. 6.
