Justice William Anderson issued his verdict against 29-year-old Brad Theriault of Corinna upon conclusion of his jury-waived trial Thursday in Piscataquis County Superior Court. Theriault faces up to 30 years in prison and a $50,000 fine when he’s sentenced next week.
Witnesses testified they’d seen Theriault pass at least five vehicles at a high rate of speed on Rt. 7 in Dover-Foxcroft before his vehicle fishtailed, left the road and rolled over into a stream. 21-year-old John Sokoloski of the Dexter area died in that crash.
