HONESDALE, Pa. (AP) - The attorney for a man accused of having let an unlicensed teenager drive a sport utility vehicle that crashed in northeastern Pennsylvania last summer, killing three other teens, says the defense denies “every factual allegation” made by prosecutors.

Fifty-three-year-old Michael Ware of Scarsdale, New York, is facing charges including endangering the welfare of children and involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities said three Council Rock High School sophomores died after the SUV flipped over Aug. 30 in Paupack Township.

Defense attorney Robert Reno said “We do not believe that any aspect of this is a crime, and we do dispute many of the allegations in the affidavit of probable cause.”

Prosecutors said the 15-year-old girl driving didn’t have a license or a permit, and a juvenile criminal petition was also filed.
