Posted on Sep 26, 2014 in Criminal Defense, Drugs, DUI/DWI
Jennifer Englade, the woman who caused a high-speed Memorial Day crash in 2013, was sentenced to 30 years in prison for her role in the deadly accident. Englade was driving down Airline Highway when she crossed over the median and caused a high speed crash that killed three people, including a pregnant woman. Englade was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and charged with DWI, three counts of vehicular manslaughter, and one count of feticide. She had a BAC of .15%, nearly twice the legal limit. She also had amphetamines and cocaine in her system at the time of the crash.
Englade was on probation for a previous DWI at the time of the accident, and was due in court for the probation the following month. She begged the court for leniency and explained her battle with addiction for the majority of her life, however, the Judge and District Attorney felt 30 years was a fair sentence considering the counts of vehicular manslaughter, now considered a violent crime.
