Man found guilty of manslaughter in teen’s death

‘A man who prosecutors said made a practice of getting teenage boys drunk has been found guilty of manslaughter for getting one of them killed.

Ryan Schultz, 31, had a blood-alcohol level more than three times the legal limit an hour after the crash that killed Sonny Hart in May 2006, the prosecution said.

Schultz bought whiskey for a group of boys and drank with them at a park north of Salem, the prosecution said. [..]

Schultz believed that “the way to live life and have fun was to get a bunch of teenage boys drunk,” Deputy District Attorney Tiffany Underwood said in closing arguments.’
