Deputy Found Guilty in Accident that Killed Man
Dakota County (Minnesota) Sheriff's deputy, 29-year-old Joshua Williams, was found guilty of careless driving in an accident that killed a motorcyclist last August. He will be sentenced in May and may face 90 days in jail and a fine of $1000.
The accident occurred as Williams, who was in the final phase of a field training program, made a U-turn in front of 58-year-old Bill Wallace. Williams and his partner were on their way to a domestic disturbance call, but were having difficulty finding the address. Video from Williams' patrol car shows him making one U-turn heading south, and then another one in the bypass lane to head north again.
Wallace was on the way to his sister's house to watch a Minnesota Vikings pre-season game. He was taken by helicopter to the hospital with multiple injuries where he later died. His sister, Bonnie Pitsenburger, believes the punishment Williams received is too light and believes he should be held accountable for his actions. There is no word on what she'll do next.
