COUPEVILLE The woman accused of killing a beloved community volunteer in a drunk driving crash last year plead guilty to one charge of vehicular homicide in Island County Superior Court Tuesday morning.
Randi Carol Shelton was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol on Highway 525 on Jan. 22, 2007, when her SUV struck Karen Gervais Boone's car and killed the mother of two.
Sentencing has been set for July 11. The maximum penalty is life in prison and a $50,000 fine.
Because of her prior convictions for DUI, Shelton would likely receive an additional four years on top of the standard sentencing range of 31 to 41 months, Hancock told her. That means Shelton faces a prison term of up to 7 years, three months.Contact South Whidbey Record Schools, Fire Dist. 3, Freeland Spencer Webster at email@example.com or (360) 221-5300.
