A former Pennsylvania State Trooper is headed to prison for a term of six to 23 months after pleading guilty Tuesday in connection with a D.U.I crash that killed 21-year-old, Robin Williams, a forensic pathologist from Philadelphia.
According to court records, 42-year-old, Barry Searfoss was driving while under the influence on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Upper Dublin on May 18th 2012 at around 10pm, when his vehicle struck a car driven by Williams. The impact caused the car to erupt in flames. Searfoss, who was a State Trooper at the time of the crash, will face two years of probation after his release and he has been ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and also perform 100 hours of community service. He will begin serving his sentence on March 17th at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility. Just prior to the crash, Searfoss had attended a fundraiser for a girl who was killed in a car crash. Beer was served at the event. Searfoss, according to police reports, was visibly drunk after the crash.
