Drunk Driving Father is Convicted for Killing Son

Just south of Milwaukee, WI, John Ibeme was convicted for the crash that killed his son. At the time of the incident Ibeme had been drinking and crossed the median and hit another SUV head on. When police arrived on the scene, they administered a breathalyzer test which showed that his BAC level was a .144. At that level, he was almost double the legal limit of intoxication in the state of Wisconsin. Ibeme killed his son and injured his two other small children in the crash.

After a year long trial period, the court finally ruled that Ibeme was guilty and gave him sentence for the DUI and Manslaughter. Because of the death of his son, he was sentenced to an extended 7 year sentence. Two of the seven years will be considered probationary years if he has had good behavior in jail.
