(Olympia) – The state Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction of a Port Angeles man convicted of ramming another car in south Port Angeles two years ago.
30-year-old Michael Moyle was found guilty of multiple assault and hit and run charges in January of last year.
But the defense appealed the verdict. On Tuesday the appeals court agreed with prosecutors and the jury's decision and also upheld Moyle's sentence of more than two years in prison.
According to the court documents, Moyle was at the Port Angeles Albertson's when he saw a car driven by Stewart Baker. Moyle followed Baker's car in his black Mustang at a high rate of speed, then rammed the Baker vehicle, pushing it 150 feet broadside into a telephone pole. Baker's mother and two children were injured, including a head injury to a four-year old child who was airlifted to Seattle. Moyle left the scene after the wreck and without identifying himself and was apprehended later.
