WAKEFIELD — The 22-year old Charlestown man responsible for driving under the influence ad causing a 2009 motorcycle fatality was sentenced Monday to serve seven years at the Adult Correctional Institutions.

Henry Lamb at his September 2009 arraignment Henry D. Lamb, of 70 Columbia Heights Oval, Charlestown, pleaded no contest to driving under the influence, death resulting, and driving to endanger, death resulting. A third charge of driving with a suspended license was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

Lamb was sentenced to serve 15 years at the Adult Correctional Institutions for driving under the influence. He will serve 7 of those years, with the balance suspended with probation. At the same time, he will serve 7 years of a 10-year sentence for driving to endanger. Once he is released on probation, he will lose his license for five years and is ordered to complete DUI school. He must also complete 1,000 hours of community service and pay court costs.

“I find that he is contrite, truly sorry and in large part, a ruined human being at this point in his life,” Judge Edwin Gale said prior to sentencing in Washington County Superior Court.

Lamb was traveling north on Beaver River Road in Richmond shortly after 7 p.m. on July 12 when he lost control of the 2008 Yamaha motorcycle and struck a tree and rocks. Neither Lamb nor his passenger, Kimberly G. Barbera, were wearing helmets. Assistant Attorney General Steve Regine said that Lamb was traveling at least 55 miles per hour in a 25-mile per hour zone and had a blood alcohol level of 0.150 — the legal limit is 0.08.

Both were taken to area hospitals for treatment. Barbera, 20, later died of her injuries.

Lamb was named in a Sept. 12 in a secret indictment, which means it was not the result of an arrest by the police or a complaint to the District Court. He had been out on bail since Sept. 21.
