The Edinboro man charged with crashing his vehicle into the car of an off-duty Erie police officer who had just been involved in a fatal DUI crash, learns his sentence in court.
On Wednesday, Danny Hamilton, 36, was sentenced to spend 30 days on electronic monitoring and another five months on probation.
Last February, moments after Cheryl Frey crashed into 57-year-old Wade Schulze’s vehicle on Route 99 in McKean, police say Hamilton crashed into Frey’s car.
In August, Frey pleaded guilty to charges of homicide by DUI and DUI at the highest rate, in connection to the initial crash which killed Schulze.
Police say that Hamilton had a blood alcohol content of 0.20 percent, which is more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Hamilton was also ordered to abstain from alcohol and to attend DUI classes.
