In the early hours of Saturday, March 7th, 2009, Matthew Maher made the fatal decision to drive his vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. Traveling at a high rate of speed on the Atlantic City Expressway, Matthew struck the vehicle of 55 year-old Hort Kap, husband and father of six children. Mr. Kap was pronounced dead at the scene and Matthew was arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter. Matthew's poor decision to drink and drive would tragically change many lives. He was eventually sentenced to 5 years 5 months in prison, in which he must serve 85 percent of his time.
Prior to Matt's sentencing on January 7th, 2010, a presentation was created by the South Jersey Traffic Safety Alliance featuring the story of Matt's life called,"I'm That Guy"
