WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – A judge has convicted a Weston man in the June drunken driving death of an Oshkosh motorcyclist.
Matthew Vissers pled no contest to homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle in the death of Greg Davis. He admitted drinking a couple of beers in celebration of his 23rd birthday before he crashed into Davis on Business Highway 51 in Rothschild.
Judge Vincent Howard ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set sentencing for May 25th.
The charge calls for a maximum 40-year penalty but prosecutors have agreed to recommend only five years in prison and 10 years on extended supervision.
Davis’ family, who came from Oshkosh for the hearing, was disappointed that the judge did not impose a sentence today.
“I think we were all ready for that,” brother Steve Davis said as he choked back tears. “We wanted this part to be closed.”
Vissers’ relatives declined to comment.
“We hope the message that he receives is that you just can’t do that [drink and drive],” Davis said.
