SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A Tully woman has avoided jail time as part of a plea deal for a deadly crash. Katharine Webb, 22, was sentenced Friday morning for the November crash that killed Jerry Brown, 29.
Webb was originally charged with vehicular manslaughter, but she pled guilty to criminally negligent homicide. Prosecutors say alcohol was involved in the crash, but there was not enough evidence to prove Webb was driving drunk at the time.
She'll serve five years probation and 300 hours of community service.
"I know she has had some conversations outside the courtroom with the victim's family, she was very remorseful with them. Her comments in the presentence report, as the judge indicated, showed some remorse. And she certainly was remorseful in the courtroom today," said Chris Bednarski, Senior Assistant District Attorney.
In addition to the probation and community service, Webb will be required to have an ignition interlock device installed in any future cars she drives.
