Man Sentenced to 20 Years in Jail for South End Drunk Driving Crash

Boston Police Department

A Dorchester man will serve 20 years in prison for a drunk driving crash in the South End in 2010 that left one of his friends dead.

Warren Tyler, 47, received the maximum penalty for manslaughter this week, after a Suffolk County jury found him guilty of being drunk and causing the crash that killed his friend, according to District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.

Warren was found guilty of both motor vehicle homicide and manslaughter by operating under the influence in the 2010 crash that killed his friend and passenger, 46-year-old Johnny Williams, Jr.  Jurors acquitted Tyler of an additional charge of receiving a stolen motor vehicle.

Prior to sentencing, Suffolk Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke dismissed the charge of motor vehicle homicide on the grounds that it was duplicative of the manslaughter charge, which carries a longer maximum sentence of 20 years.  Prosecutors recommended a term of 19 to 20 years in state prison; Locke imposed a sentence of 18 to 20 years. read more
