MARTINSBURG, W.Va. --Â A Berkeley County, W.Va., man entered a guilty plea Monday to a charge of DUI causing death in connection with a 2007 motorcycle crash that claimed the life of an 18-year-old man.
William Wayne "Billy" DeHaven Jr. is scheduled to be sentenced May 26 by 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge Christopher C. Wilkes on the felony charge.
DeHaven, now 27, is expected to receive a sentence of one to 10 years and be ordered to pay restitution and court costs, Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Jean Games-Neely said. The sentence is the maximum allowed by state code, Games-Neely said.
DeHaven, of Gerrardstown, W.Va., has been incarcerated at Eastern Regional Jail since October, when his bond was revoked for an unrelated charge, according to court records.
