Man Gets 12 Years For Crash That Killed 2

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A Montgomery County man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for a drunken driving crash that killed two friends who were crossing the road.

Alejandro Roman apologized at his sentencing Wednesday, calling his actions early on Oct. 10 stupid and reckless.

Roman, 25, is a former Army reservist who served in Iraq.

Prosecutors say his blood-alcohol level was well above the legal limit on the night of the crash and that he never called 911 despite stopping his car to look at the victims. Prosecutors sought a 20-year sentence, the maximum possible punishment for Roman’s crime of manslaughter.

The two victims — Adam J. Hosinski and Rory J. Weichbrod, both 26 — were out celebrating a friend’s birthday and were struck as they tried to cross Rockville Pike.

    Let’s see, he is 25 yrs old, he most likely will serve 2/3 of the sentence which amounts to 8 yrs. This will put him out on the street with zero chance to be a success & mostly likely will resume drinking again & a good possibility he will kill himself or others. It’s ok if he kills himself other than the paperwork but where in the hell is this judge get off giving him a sentence of 4 years each for killing two men?? Please, these people need to go away forever. He will be out at age 33. That is young & these men will be in the ground forever & their families heartbroken forever.

    SEEMS LIKE HUMAN LIFE DOESN’T MEAN MUCH ANYMORE, THE MAN ABOVE AND JUST YESTERDAY A YOUNG WOMAN WAS GIVEN A SLAP ON THE WRIST FOR KILLING ANOTHER WOMAN. THEY KEEP HARPING ABOUT GETTING GUNS OFF THE STREETS, THEY SHOULD WORRY ABOUT KEEPING THE DRUNKS THAT KILL PEOPLE OFF THE ROADS. WHERE ARE OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES WHEN WE NEED LAWS TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT , BETTER YET ENFORCE THE EXISTING LAWS AND FOLLOW THE LAW TO THE LETTER. YOU’LL NEVER GET THE DRUNKS OFF THE ROAD TILL THEY OUTLAW BOOZE WHICH WILL NEVER HAPPEN
