Clinton Lovelace Gets Eight

All Posts, News

Clinton Lovelace, the apparently loaded driver who ran over a pack of ten motorcycles on State Road 151 near Fond du Lac, Wisconsin on May 31, 2012 was sentenced today to serve eight years in prison.

He will serve consecutive terms of three years each for the two bikers he killed and an additional two years for the other misery he caused. The two dead men were Daniel Winsemius of Twin Lake, Michigan and Douglas Yonkers of Muskegon, Michigan. After he is released Lovelace will spend seven more years on probation.

Lovelace pled guilty last September to two counts of homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle and three counts of reckless injury. The prosecutor, Fond du Lac County Deputy District Attorney Dennis Krueger, asked Judge Gary Sharpe to sentence Lovelace to 20 years.

Muskegon Motorcycle Gang

The ten bikes carried a dozen people associated with a riding club called the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang. The twelve were on the club’s annual “Bridge Run.”

The group had taken a ferry from Muskegon to Milwaukee. The plan was to ride north to the Mackinac Bridge then south back home through most of Michigan.

The pack was about 70 miles into Wisconsin when Lovelace, travelling in the opposite direction, suddenly swerved into the pack. A police report said “the vehicle’s crossing wasn’t a slow gradual movement, it was almost like it jerked over the centerline striking the motorcycles.”

Eric “Ric” VanDam was at the front of the pack. Lovelace struck him in the left saddlebag. VanDam lost a leg and is now confined to a wheelchair. Winsemius and Yonkers were riding behind VanDam. Winsemius died at the scene. Yonkers died a week later. Lovelace struck all ten bikes and injured ten of the twelve riders.

Lovelace

Lovelace was injured in the crash and hospitalized. Nurses found two syringes and multiple doses of blotter acid in his clothes. His blood contained traces of marijuana and oxycodone. He told police he took Adderall and Xanax daily.

He also told police he couldn’t remember the crash or anything else about that morning.

There were no mechanical problems with his car and he initially pled not guilty.

This morning the courtroom was filled with survivors of the crash, family members and bikers from around Wisconsin. Several survivors of the tragedy told the judge they had been sentenced to “life sentences.”

    Well, the boy hit the mainline, but they’re being coy about it, got him listed as “Active Community Supervision”, which is usually a halfway house or program house. More digging is called for.

    Ol’ Clinton is getting groomed as we speak for a right jolly rogering!

    The boy is still in Fond du Lac County Jail. Someone? Anyone? Please pass it around.

    The lawyers for the people run-over by this thing should know that he was on the street at the behest of the Prostitutor at the time he ran these good people down. Bet it makes a dollar or two difference in their case.

    @Sieg

    So good ol’ Clinton was a narc, huh?

    And the pigs he was working for probably gave him immunity to continue to get as loaded up as he wanted just as long as he kept feeding them their quota of drug busts.

    Hell I bet a few porkers got promotions for doing such fine police work.

    Here’s a tidbit to add to the boys file.

    2008, Clinton H. Loveface got popped for possession of a narcotic drug, and possession of THC.

    All charges dismissed by order of the Prostitutor.

    And we all know what that means.

    Life means nothing to that drunk bastard,what goes around comes around.

  10. Phuquehed Says:

    It’s an even bigger fucked up farce of ‘justice’ by a fag, air-wasting judge when it’s compared to what happened to Brian Brewer.

    FTP, FTF, fuck judges like this shit-stain in this article, ACAB and fucking TOSIAR

    What a joke sentence. Two people lose their lives and he only gets 8 years. Hopefully Karma catches up with him sooner rather than later.

    What a terrible tragedy and travesty of justice. Just goes to show what the value of a bikers life is to this injustice system. Thoughts and prayers to those still healing and the families of the departed.
    Im afraid with this sentence and the nyc road rage incident its gonna be more of an open season on bikers more now than ever before. Keep yours eyes open and head on a swivel.

    @jj solari That’s a great concept, unfortunately, it would probably cost more than our current national debt to accomplish.

  14. jj solari Says:

    having a road system in which oncoming traffic in the third dimension is separated by a line of paint in the second dimension is kind of irresponsible. if anyone should go to prison its everyone in the DOT. Actually.

    Rebel I haven been able to connect to this site on my home
    computer or my laptop while on my wifi at home for a month but
    Have no problem connecting with my cell phone. Very annoying
    To say the least. Any suggestions on how to fix this, seems
    like it must be my setting which haven’t changed as far as I know
    or my internet service?

  16. Too Short Says:

    Wonder if they’ll change his first name to Linda for 8 years.

  17. Bill Says:

    CN: You’re right on all that. Also I think car alarms that use the horn have probably caused some damage. I know I’ve reacted when they’ve gone off in a car parked along the road as I passed.

  18. CN Says:

    Bill: Add to that the “spinner” wheel covers/wheels/hub caps which can look to be moving but aren’t. Much like blue head lights, should be banned. A car/truck/trailer w/o working break lights should be cause for the impound, not a ticket and a court appearance. It truly is a horrible topic and looks a lot more like murder than anything else. I still don’t get how this only merrited 8 years.

  19. Dr. Sardonicus Says:

    I hope he ends up at New Lisbon. “Reckless Injury” will take on a whole new meaning.

  20. Bill Says:

    CN: That’s a great post on this horrible topic. When approaching a cross street with a vehicle waiting to cross or turn into my path, I also always look at its front wheel. If it’s moving, or starts to move, be ready!

  21. CN Says:

    Whether a cage or a truck, always watch it’s front wheels never the driver’s eyes which can be pointed straight at you while dring into your path. Always scan for escape routes should the unexpected become reality. Always tell those you love and who love you that you do and never turn down a hug or kiss before you leave. Leave a note saying so if nobody is around. Trust your gut, if it don’t feel right it probably ain’t.

    8 years & probation for all that death & destruction and the probability that this was done on purpose given the way it went down? Was his whole family on the jury?

  23. skycechyx Says:

    8 fucking years is just bullshit. High as a kite on a cocktail of drugs, killing two, injuring 10. & only 8 years & maybe less for “good” behaviour. What the fuck?

  24. sherides Says:

    May every day of his 8 years be spent in misery.

    He’s not in the system yet, and the case is still officially listed as open, but I’m sure he will be known wherever he ends up.
