Davenport Police say Jackson was riding a motorcycle westbound on 53rd Street, just east of Elmore Avenue, when a pickup truck driven by Sotomayer crossed the center line and crashed head-on with him.

Sotomayer was charged with Vehicular Homicide (Intoxicated), Driving Left of Center, Driving While Under Suspension, No Insurance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

He pleaded guilty to the charge of Vehicular Homicide (intoxicated) and was sentenced on Thursday, November 15, 2012.

Sotomayer will spend up to 10 years in prison with credit for time spent. He must pay a fine of $1,000 plus costs and also repay the Crime Victims Assistance Program $7,500 plus fees.

In addition to these fines, the court ordered Sotomayer to pay $150,000 in restitution to Jackson's children.
