Police officer to enter plea in fatal crash
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The Sunset Hills Police officer blamed for the death of four college students in a wrong-way, drunk driving crash is expected to enter a guilty plea this week.
The St. Louis County Prosecutor’s office says former officer Christine Miller is scheduled to enter a “blind plea” on Thursday. Miller is charged with four felony counts of involuntary manslaughter, stemming from the March 2009 crash that killed four college students from India.
A blind plea means she does not have an agreement with the prosecutor. No sentence has been recommended. Throwing herself on the mercy of the judge she could get from probation, to life in prison, or something in between.
