Christopher Henry, age 27, who drunkenly and negligently caused a head-on collision that killed a motorcyclist in 2015 was sentenced yesterday, Thursday, November 3 2016 (news source).
On August 1, 2015, Henry was arrested and convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. The crash occurred when Henry, aged 25 at the time, allowed his Ford Mustang to drift out of the westbound lane of West Lilac into the eastbound lane near Via Gianelli. He crashed head-on into a Victory motorcycle killing the 60 year old rider, Richard Michael Rodriguez.
He admitted to having one beer but evidence proves he had actually been drinking at three different places resulting with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent. Worse, Henry had a 2008 misdemeanor DUI conviction. The repeat DUI offender is sentenced for 10 years in prison.
Help is available, so contact an accident lawyer in San Diego immediately. If the drunk driving crash resulted in a fatality, the family of the deceased victim can file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for the damages such as medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income and benefits, pain and suffering and emotional distress.
