WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for killing a motorcyclist while driving drunk.
A Palm Beach County judge sentenced 47-year-old John Henry Fogarty III on Tuesday.
Authorities say Fogarty was driving a pickup truck in July 2011 when he rear-ended a motorcycle that was stopped at a traffic light. The Palm Beach Post (http://goo.gl/ErjToB ) reports that 49-year-old Mitchell Wade Mizrahi was thrown from his bike and died at the scene.
After the crash, Fogarty had a blood alcohol level of .32 percent, which is four times the legal limit.
