GRAND HAVEN, MI (WHTC) - Sentencing was this morning for Eleazar Mendoza, a 22-year-old Holland man who had pleaded guilty in May to drunken driving charges in the death of 18-year-old Bethany Rozema. Ottawa County Circuit Court Judge Jon Hulsing ordered Mendoza to prison for between three and 15 years. Mendoza had been jailed since the February 23rd crash on Pine Avenue and 17th Street in Holland, when he drove through a flashing red light and broadsided Rozema’s car.
