DA Recommends 25 Years for Drunken Driver in Fatal Motorcycle Crash

The Ozakee County District Attorney is recommending 25 years in prison for a drunk driving involved in a fatal Wisconsin motorcycle accident.

Adam Gerol, on Monday, said he is recommending that 31 year-old James Ehley be sentenced to 25 years in prison, the maximum allowed under state law, for causing the death of 18 year-old Matthew Malkowski. Gerol’s recommendation came just minutes after Ehley pleaded guilty to homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle.

Ehley was behind the wheel March 12 when he ran a stop sign and slammed his minivan into Malkowski’s motorcycle. Malkowski was transported to Froedtert Memorial Hospital for treatment. He died at home seven weeks after the accident.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family and friends.
