State v. Ms. R (DMC No. 6107)

NOT CHARGED/REDUCED | FELONY MANSLAUGHTER NOT CHARGED/MISDEMEANOR MANSLAUGHTER REDUCED to PROBATION with 100 HOURS of COMMUNITY SERVICE – State v. Ms. R. (DMC No. 6107) (West Mesa Justice Court CT2006-002295/Salt River Police Department DR2005-06294): Ms. R. had been driving near McKellips & Alma School Road in Mesa, when she made a u-turn. Another vehicle had been coming through the intersection and struck her. The driver of that vehicle died. As police contacted her, she had indicated she had drank 3 ounces of wine several hours prior, and had taken some prescription medication two days earlier. They subsequently had her sign a contract that voluntarily give blood, and we then became involved. We were able to prove with an “accident reconstruction” and blood analysis that she was not impaired, and that the accident was not her fault. The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office declined to file the felony manslaughter charge. She was, however, charged with “misdemeanor manslaughter”. We were able to have that reduced to 100 hours of community service. She was originally facing 7 to 21 years in prison, and ended up with no felony on her record and not having to do jail time.
