Death on lake leads to years in prison
Eric Cable, 34, apologized to the family of Brendan Yerry Thursday at the close of his two-hour sentencing hearing in Rockingham County Superior Court.
But Judge Marguerite Wageling chided him for failing to take responsibility for causing Yerry's death, noting it was a stance that Cable maintained even after a jury convicted him in December of two counts of negligent homicide.
"You took no time to care or protect those individuals," Wageling said.
"This is the thing that all mothers have nightmares about," she said. "I will never be whole again. I will never be the person I was before."
Defense lawyer Peter Anderson argued for a 12-month jail sentence, saying that no good would come of Cable spending any significant amount of time in prison.
Assistant County Attorney Jerome Blanchard asked the judge to consider Cable's testimony at trial that he did no wrong. Even a few days after Yerry's death, Blanchard said, Cable called Yerry's mother, telling her that "they are trying to put this on me."
Seth Alie, a Marine Patrol sergeant who arrested Cable, testified Thursday about seeing Cable drunk at a motocross event in Fremont in October 2012, weeks after he was charged. A friend of Cable's testified he wasn't intoxicated at the time.
