Olivia Peter’s family lobbied for, and got, lenience for Deshazor Everett at his sentencing today. Everett received 3 months of house arrest.
In addition to the house arrest, Everett must pay a $2,500 fine, perform 100 hours of community service, record a PSA video, and will have his license suspended for six months.
New detail about the accident emerged during Everett’s sentencing per Michael Phillips:
The court also heard evidence and testimony that Everett was not driving more than 90 miles per hour in the moments before the crash, as was initially reported by Loudoun County police.
That data came from the “black box” inside Everett’s Nissan, which crashed on a cold December evening, leaving Everett critically wounded and Peters dead.
A reconstruction of the crash by Loudoun officials estimated Everett’s speed at 65-69 miles per hour on the road, which had a speed limit of 50 mph.
Everett was not found to have drugs or alcohol in his system.
