Being the first person to help at the scene, having been driving behind the motorcycle just prior to the accident, I can say that no sentence for Ulmer will ever satisfy this hurting family. Having to explain what both victims looked like in the presence of the surviving family members and friends was absolutely excrutiating both for me and for them. Though Ulmer had no visible signs of intoxication at the time of impact, it is not unusual for alcoholics who drink frequently enough to appear "normal" and "sober" (coming from the perspective of my critical care medical background). That being said, he rightfully deserves to be convicted of the charges at hand. My guess though is that this case isn't over for me, other witnesses , Harold Ulmer, and the Aiello family. I would assume the family will seek for a wrongful death (civil trial) lawsuit. If that is the case, my assumption would also be that I will have to testify again in front of them and relive their nightmare of July 15, 2007 all over. Now that this chapter is over the only thing I can give both Ulmer as well as the Aiello friends and family are my diligent prayers. May God bless them ALL!!!
