PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After eight emotional victim impact statements from the victim's family, former Pittsburgh Police officer Adam Lewis was sentenced to one to two years followed by six months of house arrest plus three years of probation in the death of Jessica Lojak.
Lojak was killed while she was a passenger on his motorcycle on Mifflin Road in 2010. Lewis was convicted of homicide by vehicle and other charges last October.
At the time, Judge Jeffrey Manning, who heard the case without a jury, said that Lewis' speed, which was 15 to 20 MPH over the speed limit on a curving road, was gross negligence.
Lewis was off-duty the night of Sept. 26, 2010, when he met his fiancé and her bridal party out on the South Side to help take the women back home after a bachelorette party.
Lojak died after the motorcycle crossed the center line and was hit by an SUV.
