Former West Bend Man Ordered To Pay Restitution In Fatal Accident

A Washington County judge this week ordered a 34-year-old former West Bend man to pay more than $43,000 in restitution to the family of a 53-year-old woman he killed in a drunken driving accident. In December Ryan Muth was sentenced to 13 years in prison and 13 years of extended supervision on vehicular homicide charges. Muth’s blood alcohol level was almost three times the legal limit when his pickup truck crossed over the center line on Highway 33 last March and hit an oncoming car.
