Clinton Lovelace Will Stand Trial

Clinton Lovelace Will Stand Trial

By Heather Burke. CREATED Jun 15, 2012

FOND DU LAC COUNTY--A Hilbert man will stand trial for a Fond Du Lac County crash that killed two motorcyclists. 26-year-old Clinton Lovelace faces six charges for the crash--including reckless homicide. Dan Winsemius and Doug Yonkers both of Michigan were killed.           

Friday afternoon about 60 motorcyclists gathered in a Fond Du Lac County courtroom hoping Lovelace will be held accountable for smashing into 10 motorcycles last month. 
 
Lovelace reportedly didn't stop his car until there were so many motorcycles buried underneath, he couldn't go any further.
 
"This is just an incredibly awful, evil person we saw in that courtroom today,” Tim Tomann said, a representative for a motorcycle rights group in Wisconsin.
 
Tomann says this is the worst case he's seen. 
 
"Why was he ever out is the big question. We heard he had syringes in his pocket and he was on bail for having syringes. He knew he was not allowed to have syringes, but yet he was out. If we do have laws, we need to hold people accountable,” Tomann.
 
 Aside from the two syringes found in Lovelace's pocket, deputies say there was also the drug LSD. Lovelace currently faces a bail-jumping charge in Calumet County that's drug related.
 
"There are still two of the guys from this event in the ICU up here in the Valley and they need your prayers,” Tomann said.
No trial date has been set yet because the court is still waiting on the results of Lovelace's toxicology test. If convicted on all six charges, he faces more than 78-years behind bars.
