LACONIA, N.H. (AP) - A woman who admitted crashing into two teenage girls at a crosswalk in New Hampshire, killing one, will serve 6-1/2 to 14 years in prison.
Amy Lafond pleaded guilty last week to negligent homicide, second-degree assault, possession of a narcotic and illegal possession of a prescription drug in a plea agreement.
In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop the most serious charge - manslaughter. Belknap County Attorney Melissa Countway Guldbrandsen says Lafond received a suspended sentence on the illegal possession of a narcotic conviction.
Killed in the April 2013 accident in Laconia was 14-year-old Lilyanna Johnson. Her friend, 14-year-old Alyssa Miner, was seriously injured.
Authorities said the 53-year-old Lafond had oxycodone in her system when the accident occurred, but not enough to prove impairment.
