A Nebraska man who pled guilty to four counts of vehicular homicide in western Iowa is scheduled to be sentenced today.
Twenty-two-year old Andrew Schlictemeier will appear in Harrison County District Court during a plea hearing. The Murray, Nebraska, man entered a written plea of guilty to charges associated with the August 2010 deaths of four motorcyclists who were returning from a rally in South Dakota.
Three Iowa men and one Nebraska man died in the crash. Schlictemeier was driving a pickup truck which collided with the men’s cycles in a two-lane construction zone on Interstate 29, near Little Sioux, in Harrison County.
Tests showed he had more than four and one-half times the legal limit for alcohol in his blood. Each of the vehicular homicide charges carries a 25-year sentence. If the judge accepts a recommendation by prosecutors,
Schlictemeier could be sentenced to just 50-years in prison.
