A 26-year-old recent graduate of Kansas University's law school has been sentenced to 120 days in prison after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in connection with a fatal crash last year near downtown Kansas City, Mo.
Robert J.K. Domsch II, of Shawnee, pleaded guilty and was sentenced Monday in Jackson County District Court, accused of driving the wrong way on I-670 just after 1 a.m. near I-670 and Broadway on April 28, 2012, and crashing into another vehicle driven by Marco G. Vendetti, 28, of Kansas City, Mo., who died at the scene.
Domsch suffered a broken leg and pelvis. According to a probable cause statement, a detective obtained a warrant for a toxicology blood sample taken at 4:40 a.m. April 28. It showed Domsch had a blood-alcohol content of .242 nearly four hours after the crash. The legal limit to drive in Missouri is .08.
Domsch, who is in custody in Jackson County, was sentenced to 120 days in prison as part of a probation program that includes an in-custody alcohol treatment program, according to Jackson County prosecutors. He will also be required to abide by probation conditions, including refraining from consuming alcohol, attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and community service. After the 120 days in prison, prosecutors will ask that Domsch be placed on probation for five years.
Domsch graduated in May with degrees in law and business administration, according to Kansas University publications.
