A Nobel laureate in physics was sentenced Monday to two years in state prison for causing a fatal crash while driving 111 mph on U.S. 101. John Robert Schrieffer, 74, made no statement at the brief hearing before Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge James Herman. Schrieffer's attorney later said the scientist, whose breathing was labored and who had to be supported by others when he walked to the defense table, is in failing health.

A 74-year-old Nobel laureate in physics may face prison time for slamming into a van at more than 100 mph last year, killing one passenger and injuring seven others just south of Santa Maria, Calif. John Robert Schrieffer, a former professor at UC Santa Barbara who won the Nobel Prize in 1972 for a theory he helped formulate at the age of 26, was driving on a suspended Florida license at the time of the Sept. 24 collision, authorities said Wednesday. He had nine speeding tickets on his record.
