Chattooga Man Sentenced for Homicide by Vehicle

A Chattooga County man has been sentenced after pleading guilty to first-degree homicide by vehicle and driving under the influence in a 2018 crash that took the life of a Dalton man.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, in May of 2018, a Dodge Stratus driven by 27-year old Alexander Pysher of a Maverick Drive, Gore address,  crossed the center line on Gore-Subligna Road and struck a motorcycle. The driver of that motorcycle was seventy-four-year-old Windom Frank Willis of Dalton.

Pysher accepted a plea deal under Georgia’s first offender act and was sentenced to fifteen years probation, and given four-six months in a detention center.  He also must make a donation to a cancer society charity approved by his probation officer each year on the anniversary of the accident in the victim’s name.
