Drunk driver that killed 2 gets 7 1/2 years

From the Times Ledger:

The drunk driver who mowed down a 16-year-old Middle Village teen and his friend in a stolen car a year ago has been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for killing them, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

Kenneth Guyear, 28, of Middle Village, pleaded guilty last month to vehicular manslaughter. Queens Supreme Court Justice Dorothy Chin-Brandt sentenced him Tuesday to between 7 1/2 and 15 years behind bars, the maximum sentence allowed.

“The defendant’s decision to get behind the wheel of a car after drinking alcohol ended with the deaths of two young people and with him going to prison for a substantial period of time,” Brown said in a statement. “Perhaps his time behind bars will allow him to reflect on what all motorists should know: Do not drink and drive. Ever.”


Sorry, but 7 1/2 years is not enough for taking 2 lives.

No actually he was trying to make the point in his own twisted way that this guy wasn't an illegal yet he killed people. Which in his mind should make us want to have more illegals in our country...

This is such a disgrace killing two people and he can be out in 7 years. I personally knew one of the boys very well and its such a shame, he was a good loving boy. RIP ROB OGLE love and miss you <3

I went to elementary school with this guy... and I am embarrased about that.

While the rest of us from P.S 128 were out getting our H.S... College and Master Degrees, this kid was still hanging out in a bark with all those other Middle Village Dirtbags... That is why I moved our first chance I got...

He deserves life in prison...two fold... plain and simple... he took life and he should pay with his own... dirtbag
