Guilty in Pesach Goldberg Homicide

Times Herald-Record :

...Rabbi Pesach Goldberg and his family were driving to a relative's bar mitzvah just before 9 a.m. on July 24. As they approached a rise in the road, they saw the drunken man in the middle of the pavement. They saw him too late. Goldberg swerved to avoid Joseph Olivieri but his car slid into the oncoming lane, colliding with a car driven by Jim Krueger.
Goldberg, 47, of Brooklyn, was killed. His wife Tova was critically injured. Six of his nine children were hurt...
Olivieri, 48, of Fallsburg pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and first-degree reckless endangerment, felonies.
Today, he was sentenced in Sullivan County Court to 1 1/2 to 4 1/2 years in prison, the maximum allowed.
