Prison for driver in crash that killed teen

“Everybody loses.” 

That’s what the father of a Hamilton woman killed in a crash in Ottawa County last spring said after the man driving the car was sentenced to prison on Monday.

Prosecuting attorney John Scheurle agreed.

Devin Russell Schafer, 20, of Martin read a statement of apology before being sentenced to prison for 3-15 years.

His charges were drunken driving causing death and failing to stop at the scene of an accident. Schafer pleaded no contest to both charges at a Jan. 20 hearing.

“I can’t even begin to say how sorry I am,” he read from a piece of paper.
