19-year sentence in fatal DUI crash

Citizen Staff Writer



A Tucson man was sentenced Friday to 19 years in prison for a drunken driving crash that involved three cars and killed his passenger.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Deborah Bernini sentenced Mike Allen Schomisch, 45, to 10.5 years for a manslaughter charge in the November 2007 death of Gregory Allgood, 45.

Bernini imposed a total of 8.5 years for other charges including aggravated DUI, aggravated assault, criminal damage and endangerment.

Police said Schomisch was driving his pickup west in the 4900 block of East 22nd Street about 7:20 p.m. Nov. 18, 2007, at high speed when he rear-ended another pickup, pushing it across a raised median and into oncoming traffic, where it collided with a sport utility vehicle.

The three drivers sustained minor injuries, but Allgood later died at a hospital.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
