Wisconsin Man Takes Plea Deal after Fatal Crash

Tuesday, January 22, Matthew Loiacano, 30, pled guilty to a charge of reckless homicide regarding the accident in which 10-year-old Griffin Shirey was killed and his twin brother, Nicholas, was seriously injured.

Although Loiacano has persistently denied being the driver of the vehicle and wanted to take the case to court, he accepted the plea bargain after discovering that two other passengers inside the pickup truck with him confessed on video saying he was the driver. According to the deal, Loiacano will spend two months in Lake County jail, nine months confined in his home, pay $1,250, serve 30 months of probation, and complete 200 hours of community service.

In a related development, the boy’s father, Scott Shirey, pleaded guilty to aggravated driving under the influence of cannabis for his role in the crash. He will be on probation for 27 months.

The thoughts of our entire legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. are with the Shireys and all those affected by Griffin’s death.
