Hilbert Man Pleads To Homicide By Negligent Operation Of A Vehicle Charges

A Fond du Lac County courtroom was packed with motorcyclists from throughout Wisconsin and Michigan during a plea hearing this afternoon for a 26-year-old Hilbert man. Clinton Lovelace ran into a group of 12 motorcyclists on Highway 151 in the Town of Taycheedah on May 31st of last year. Two of them died from their injuries and seven others were injured. Lovelace pled "no contest" to two counts of Homicide by Negligent Use of a Vehicle and entered Alford pleas to three counts of 2nd Degree Reckless Injury. The Alford plea is essentially a guilty plea accompanied by a claim of innocence. It will be up to Judge Gary Sharpe during a February 6th sentencing hearing, but District Attorney Eric Toney says the plea agreement calls for up to 32 1/2 years of prison time to be followed by 20 to 25 years of extended supervision. Toney calls it an appropriate recommendation. Lovelace admitted to ingesting Oxycodone before the accident, but a blood test wasn't taken until 3 hours after the crash and by that time he was being treated for his own injuries. The motorcyclists from the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang were on their way back to Michigan from a trip  to Milwaukee when the accident occurred.

It wasn't a Motorcycle "Gang", it was a "Club". Stupid editors.
