A Greenville businessman who achieved notoriety after crashing his Maserati into a house three years ago, is headed to prison after violating his probation.
A judge revoked John Ludwig’s probation Friday and sentenced him to serve three years in prison. Ludwig was charged with domestic violence against his wife in November.
His attorney argued that Ludwig and his wife were having an argument about finances and that it was not a violent encounter.
Ludwig had previously been found guilty of reckless homicide in 2009 after he lost control of his car while speeding and crashed into a house, killing 62-year-old Bill Bardsley inside. Investigators said Ludwig had been driving 85 miles per hour at the time.
