Man sentenced in 2013 Logan County fatal crash


A 30-year-old man was sent to jail and had his license suspended Monday in a plea agreement on charges from an August 2013 Logan County fatal crash.

Christian Fischer, of East Liberty, pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide and vehicular assault and was sentenced to 90 days in jail, five years community control and 200 hours of community service, according to the Logan County Clerk of Courts.

The judge suspended Fischer's driver's license for three years and ordered him to pay a $500 fine as well as court costs, attorneys' fees and restitution, according to the clerk's office.

Fischer told police he was distracted when he went left-of-center and struck a motorcycle head-on on Aug. 11 on U.S. 68.

The collision killed the motorcyclist, 39-year-old Charles S. Carpenter, and seriously injured the passenger, 41-year-old Cathy L. Goodyear.

Fischer is serving his jail sentence at the Logan County Jail.
