A defendant in a fatal DUI related crash investigated by the NYCRPD came to justice in an admission of guilt to the offenses surrounding a November 2008 crash in Jackson Township on U.S. Route 30 commonly referred to as the “Lincoln Highway”.
Julianne D. Fetrow pleaded guilty this morning in York County to charges stemming from the fatal November 2007 alcohol-related crash that killed her friend and passenger. Court records indicate this was the 43 year-old offender’s second homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence charge and her fifth DUI arrest.
Fetrow admitted in court she was drunk at the wheel when her car was struck by a tractor-trailer in Thomasville on Nov. 28, 2007, killing her passenger, 53-year-old Victor E. Wolf Jr.
Wolf died at York Hospital of multiple blunt force trauma injuries. Fetrow also was hospitalized with injuries. Her blood alcohol level after the crash was reported as 0.256 percent.
In a negotiated arrangement today, Fetrow pleaded guilty to third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle while DUI, DUI, and driving under suspension-DUI related. The previously negotiated plea agreement calls for a sentence of no more than 13 to 30 years.
Sentencing is scheduled for September 20, 2010.
