Sentencing Announced for Fatal Hit and Run/OWI in Milwaukee

Posted on Jul 25, 2010

The man responsible for a deadly hit and run accident last September has been sentenced in a Milwaukee court.  Michael Dorsey, 47, pled not guilty to driving while intoxicated and causing the serious accident that killed 24-year-old  rider Brandon Boston.

Dorsey was driving his truck while intoxicated when he turned in front of Boston.  The motorcycle struck the truck, fatally injuring the motorcyclist.  Dorsey fled the scene but was later caught by police.  The victim's father spoke at the sentencing.

"I think of you and you had the chance to make the right decision as an adult, you should have but you chose not to and as a first responder when you fled the scene you left my son to die," said Boston.

 This was Dorsey's second OWI (Operating While Intoxicated).  He expressed sadness and regret over the accident.

"I am solely responsible for the decision to leave the scene and I only hope that one day the Boston family will find it in their hearts to forgive me," said Dorsey at his sentencing hearing. 

The victim was an active participant and fundraiser in the Bogus Boys Motorcycle Club.  The night of the crash he had been riding with fellow members. 

The attorneys at Hupy & Abraham would like to send our deepest condolences to the Boston family.  We hope that the court's decision will bring you some peace.
