fall river superior court

FALL RIVER — A Rehoboth man who was free on bail pending charges he killed a motorcyclist in an alleged drunken driving crash two years ago is back in jail for violating a court order prohibiting him from drinking alcohol, according to court records.

Jeffrey H. Fisk Jr., 42, of 601 Tremont St., had been free on $50,000 cash bail.

In addition to wearing a GPS bracelet, he was ordered to submit to random alcohol testing among other pre-trial release conditions.

At the request of prosecutors, Fall River Superior Court Judge Thomas McGuire sent Fisk back to jail earlier this week for 90 days for failing to follow an order to refrain from drinking alcohol, according to records.

Fisk was driving a pickup truck on June 25, 2016 on Agricultural Avenue near Rocky Hill Road when the vehicle and a motorcycle ridden by Anthony Kishfy, 63, of Seekonk, collided head on. Kishfy was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fisk has pleaded innocent to manslaughter by motor vehicle while drunken driving and motor vehicle homicide while driving drunk. If convicted on the manslaughter charge, he faces a mandatory minimum of five years in prison.

His lawyer, Kevin Reddington of Brockton, could not be reached immediately for comment on Friday.

No trial date has been set.

Fisk also faces a civil lawsuit filed by Kishfy’s estate.
