Michael Scott Chodur plead guilty on November 27, 2013 to a charge of felony B vehicular homicide and was sentenced on March 3rd by Judge Gregg Rosenbladt to 10 years in prison and a fine of $1,000.

The vehicle driven by Chodur came to rest in the middle of the highway, facing east, where it also caught fire.

Both men were injured in the accident.  Weedman was hospitalized in Iowa City and later died.

    Well, let’s just thank God he didn’t get growing some pot plants in Iowa or he’d have gotten a 5 year mandatory minimum sentence with no parole. The way things sit, he’ll be able to get out in 40 months with good time. Iowans have their priorities.
