Twenty-six-year-old Clinton Lovelace has entered no contest pleas Tuesday afternoon, September 24, for charges of two counts of homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle and three counts of reckless injury/endangering safety in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
The charges stemmed from an accident that Lovelace caused on May 31, 2012 when he crashed his car into a throng of Muskegon, Michigan-area bikers who were called the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang near Fond du Lac, killing Daniel Winsemius and Douglas Yonkers and injuring Eric VanDam.
According to police investigators, Lovelace’s blood was filled with the narcotic painkiller Oxycodone even three hours after the accident. Police were also able to retrieve syringes, drug paraphernalia, and narcotics in Lovelace’s pockets at the hospital where he was treated.
Lovelace will face sentencing on February 6. His maximum sentence of 30 years can be capped at 20 under the plea agreement.
