Lovelace Pleas Not Guilty
FOND DU LAC, Wis.-The man accused of driving into a group of motorcycle riders has entered a plea of not guilty to all charges against him. Clinton Lovelace appeared in Fond du Lac County court Friday morning and faces a total of 12 charges as a result of the crash on May 31st on Highway 151.
Two riders from Michigan died in the incident with seven others injured.
Lovelace's attorney requested a competency exam saying the suspect is suffering from amnesia after suffering a head injury in the crash. The judge agreed and granted the request.
About a dozen motorcyclists showed up for Lovelace's second court appearance to show support for the victims. Tim Tomman of ABATE of Wisconsin was one of those riders who came to court. He says the Lovelace's attorney is trying to stall the case, but he says the motorcycle community will be around for the duration of the trail. "Clearly the motorcycle community will continue to turn out we'll continue to take our time off of work, we'll come up, we're going to see this through until the bitter end," Tomman said.
A motion hearing will be held for Lovelace during the next 60 days.
