A Jericho man who pleaded guilty to driving drunk and killing a motorcyclist was sentenced Tuesday to up to 15 years in prison.
Jordan Solomon admitted in March to DWI that resulted in the death of Christopher Soobrian. The Nassau district attorney says Solomon was driving 100 mph when he hit Soobrian from behind.
Prosecutors told the judge that Solomon had a blood alcohol content of .23, nearly three times the legal limit of .08.
They say Soobrian's motorcycle was wedged in the front windshield of Solomon's car and Soloman drove his car like that for nearly a mile before it broke down at the entrance of the Long Island Expressway.
Soobrian was headed home from his job at a restaurant when he was killed. The father of four died at the scene.
His wife, Adreanna Rodriguez, says she does not think justice has been done for her husband.
"I'm glad he's in jail finally cause you know, obviously, he posted bail and was out," Rodriguez says. "So, I'm glad that, you know, he'll have to face some repercussions - sit in jail, think about it. So, I'm a little relieved, but not really."
Solomon faces 6 ½ to 15 years in prison. Prosecutors had initially recommended seven to 21 years behind bars.
