Man sentenced to six years of jail for OWI that killed his wife

Fifty-one-year-old Watertown resident Todd Hamann was sentenced to six years of imprisonment on March 19 by Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge David Wambach in regards to the September 2013 drunk driving motorcycle accident that killed Hamann’s wife, Sharon, the Daily Union reported.

Hamann’s charges were originally far more severe, including one count of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and one count of homicide by use of a vehicle with an illegal blood alcohol content. Hamann pleaded no contest to the charges against him, and a plea bargain reduced his potential jail time to six years in prison and two subsequent years of supervision. The reduction in charges also had to do with the lack of likelihood that Hamann would re-offend.

The conditions attached to Hamann’s extended supervision include undergoing therapy or counseling, as well as not operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license or the approval of his agent.
