Paraplegic Md. Driver Could Go Back To Jail
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — An Ellicott City man who killed two people in a car crash in 2002 faces up to seven more years in prison for allegedly violating probation.
Matthew Meyer has a court hearing scheduled for Wednesday morning in Hagerstown.
Meyer served about four years of a seven-year prison term for two Washington County manslaughter convictions. He was released in 2008.
Prosecutors say Meyer then obtained a Maryland driver’s license and was caught last year speeding, despite a probation condition barring him from driving in the state.
If he is found in violation, Meyer could be ordered to serve a seven-year term that was suspended as part of a plea deal on the manslaughter charges.
Meyer is paralyzed from the chest down due to injuries from an earlier wreck.
