A Bar Harbor man who was driving drunk when his car crashed and killed a passenger is going to prison for three years. Noah Mohr was sentenced on Wednesday.
Last week he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and operating under the influence.
Court testimoney revealed Mohr was driving over one hundred miles per hour in a 35 mile an hour zone and had a blood alcohol level almost twice the legal limit when he lost control of his car two years ago.
17 year old Blaine Alley died from injuries sustained in that crash.
Experts testified that a genetic condition affected Mohr’s ability to make good decisions and would make him more likely to be a target in prison.
At today’s sentencing some of Alley’s family told the court they didn’t want to see Mohr go to jail for a long time but they did feel he needs to be punished.
