NEW BEDFORD - The owner of the 63-foot motorized boat that crashed into a sailboat barely half its size, killing local sailing enthusiast David J. Walsh, will be charged, the Bristol County District Attorney's office said today.
Fred M. Bevins III, 60, of 22 Honeysuckle Road, Gloucester, will be charged with one count of homicide by vessel.
If convicted, he faces up to 30 months of incarceration, a fine of up to $3,000, or both.
A conviction would also cause a loss of license for 10 years.
The criminal complaint will be filed in New Bedford District Court by the Massachusetts Environmental Police.
Investigators allege that Mr. Bevins was the operator of "The Reasons" when it crashed into "The Priority", a 35-foot sailboat.
Mr. Walsh and his friend, Warren Hathaway, were aboard the sailboat at the time of the incident.
Mr. Hathaway sustained minor injuries in the crash.
