AKRON, Ohio -- An Ohio judge has refused to restore the driving privileges of a drunken driver involved in a 2005 fatal crash.
Summit County Common Pleas Judge Amy Corrigall Jones in Akron ruled Thursday against the request by Molly Wagner Farmer.
She pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide and drunken driving in a crash that killed 21-year-old Jacqueline Bryan of Akron.
John Bryan, father of the victim, told the Akron Beacon Journal that his family was relieved by the decision.
Defense attorney Carmen Roberto plans to ask the judge to reconsider her ruling.
The defendant, then 22, avoided a possible prison sentence when prosecutors learned that blood samples showing alcohol and cocaine in her system were improperly obtained because the hospital was not certified for such testing.
