A 21-year-old man admitted in court that he was under the influence of marijuana when he caused an April traffic collision that killed the founder of Salt Lake City's Siegfried's Deli.
Daniel Levert, of Salt Lake City, was charged in 3rd District Court with second-degree felony automobile homicide for colliding with 69-year-old Siegfried Meyer.
On Monday, Levert pleaded guilty to a lesser third-degree felony count of automobile homicide. He also pleaded guilty to class A misdemeanor obstructing justice, reduced from a third-degree felony.
In exchange for his pleas, prosecutors dismissed misdemeanor counts of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, and failure to yield, an infraction.
