BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A woman from Orrington charged with causing a deadly car crash was back in a Bangor courtroom Thursday to accept a plea agreement.
Prosecutors said Sarah Courtney was driving her truck in Hampden back in April 2013 with Sarah Eason in the passenger's seat when she lost control and crashed, killing Eason.
The Penobscot District Attorney said Courtney's blood alcohol level was 0.14, nearly twice the legal limit. Witnesses reported the two women had been bar hopping in the hours leading up to the crash.
On Thursday, Courtney entered no contest to manslaughter and OUI charges. She will serve 10 years in prison with all but two and a half suspended, followed by four years probation.
