Prison for drunk driver who killed motorcyclist in northeast Minneapolis
A 29-year-old motorist has been sentenced to a four-year term for being drunk when she struck and killed a motorcyclist in northeast Minneapolis.
Hannah C. Weyh, 29, was sentenced last week in Hennepin County District Court in connection with the collision in November that killed 31-year-old Brandon Pearson, of Golden Valley.
Weyh, who grew up in the Twin Cities and was living in Washington state at the time of the wreck, will serve the first three years of her term in prison and the rest on supervised release. Her sentence includes paying restitution of more than $12,000.
