Enfield – Prison Term For Reckless Driver
A motorist involved in a fatal crash in Enfield has just been sentenced to prison.
A few minutes past 3:00 a.m. on August 27, 2017, then 17-year-old Sydni Damato was approaching the intersection of Abbe and Powder Hill Roads when she crashed her Honda Civic. The incident killed 19-year-old Lailyn Soja and seriously injured now 21-year-old John Neild. The investigation that followed revealed that Damato was under the influence of regulated substances at the time of the crash. Just recently, a plea agreement was offered to Damato. She has since accepted the deal and has now been sentenced to four years in prison and three years in probation for second-degree manslaughter with a motor vehicle.
Plea deals are equitable in almost all instances. So regardless of these agreements, justice will be served once these cases are concluded. Dealing with tragic events is challenging enough. It can also be difficult for victims or their families to explore the legal ramifications of these scenarios. Fortunately, experts can guide them through this process. Making the right choices is crucial as these can help aggrieved parties cope and find closure.
