The former Ottawa councilman who caused a fatal crash earlier this year was sentenced Thursday. The Courier reports Alan Ducey was given two 180-day suspended jail sentences. He also had his license suspended for a year and was fined $1,000.
Judge Chad Niese said Ducey was not on his phone and was not intoxicated when the crash happened. Ducey spoke in court, saying “I cannot hope to ask for your forgiveness and I do not deserve it, either” to the victim’s families.
85-year-old Joan Beam and her daughter, 62-year-old Christine Hayden, were killed in the crash.
