A Washington County Circuit judge Wednesday sentenced a paraplegic driver convicted of the 2002 deaths of a Hagerstown couple killed in a head-on collision to 3 1/2 years in state prison for violating his probation. Matthew David Meyer, 33, of Ellicott City, Md., also received a 3 1/2-year suspended sentence from Judge Daniel P. Dwyer, who deferred imposing the sentences for 30 days, releasing Meyer on a $50,000 appeal bond.
