Walden man sentenced to prison for vehicular homicide


GOSHEN – A Walden man was sentenced by Orange County Court Judge Craig Stephen Brown on Tuesday to five to 15 years in state prison in connection with the death of another motorist on March 4, 2017.               

Dennis Wilson, Jr., 32, pled guilty to felony aggravated vehicular homicide admitting that he was driving an SUV at about 12:11 a.m. on March 4 on Route 52 in the Town of Montgomery when he crossed the double yellow line into the opposite lane of traffic and struck a car head-on, killing the driver, Jason Exley, 28, also of Walden.

Wilson also admitted that at the time of the crash, his blood alcohol content was .20 percent.

“This defendant’s decision to drink and driver cost an innocent man his life and merits a lengthy prison sentence,” said District Attorney David Hoovler. “Fatalities caused by those who drive while intoxicated are as preventable as they are tragic.”
