Michael Lee Liggett

Michael Lee Liggett, 34, formerly of Monroe, will be sentenced tomorrow.

He pled guilty to vehicular homicide and two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon May 4. The sentence could be up to, but will not exceed, 29 years. Liggett’s actions led to the death of 20-year-old Clayton Bennett Harsin on August 3, 2014. Harsin was northbound riding a 1982 Yamaha on Highway 14, slowing in an attempt to turn eastbound on G44. A 2003 Frontier pickup driven by Liggett failed to slow and struck the motorcycle in the rear. Harsin was ejected, and Liggett fled the scene.
