Celebrity Bike Builder Billy Lane
 Pleads "No Contest"

     In a trial that started last December stemming from a 2006 Labor Day fatal head-on crash, Billy Lane pled “No Contest” to one felony count of vehicular homicide.  Police said Lane's blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit when he crossed a double yellow line to pass several cars near Melbourne Beach, striking Sebastian Inlet park ranger Gerald Morelock's motorcycle head-on. billy-lane-dodge-truck-250
    Lane faces a cap of about nine years in prison when he is sentenced at 9 a.m. Aug. 14 by Circuit Judge Robert Burger.  Under the terms of the plea bargain, Prosecutors changed the original one count of DUI manslaughter to a single felony count of vehicular homicide.  Another term of the plea bargain is a lifetime license suspension, although this may be modified to allow Lane to use it for specific needs, possibly work related.  Other provisions such as alcohol/drug counseling, house arrest and/or probation are up to the judge.
