It may have been a while, but the family of Benjamin Westerman has not forgotten. Now almost six years later, the man who killed their son, William J. Shroeder, is finally being charged with the death of his friend.
It was a tragic car accident like so many others that occur around our nation during the July 4th celebrations, a young man killed because someone decided to drink and drive. Shroeder was drunk when he veered off the road at about 100mph. Although it sounds like an open and shut case, it has taken six years for charges to finally be pressed. He will be charged with a felony in homicide by reckless operation of a car. HE faces up to ten years in prison with a fine of $25,000.
