Driver pleads no contest

A Pulaski County woman charged in connection with a March wreck that injured three juveniles pleaded no contest to intoxicated driving and three counts of assault and battery Tuesday in Pulaski County Circuit Court.
In addition to the intoxicated driving (DUI) charge, Deborah D’Amico had been charged with three counts of maiming as a result of intoxicated driving. However, her no lo contendere or no contest plea was to the DUI and three lesser charges of assault and battery.
A no contest plea means D’Amico is not admitting she is guilty, but she is not contesting that evidence is sufficient for a finding of guilt.
As a result of the plea, Judge Colin Gibb fined D’Amico $2,500, suspended her driving privileges for 12 months and ordered her to perform 95 hours of community service. She will be allowed to obtain a temporary drivers permit to drive to and from work if she chooses to attend the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program (VASAP).
Each of the maiming charges was a Class 6 felony carrying a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
Assault and battery is a Class 1 misdemeanor that carries a maximum of 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine.
According to Virginia State Trooper C.T. Keene, the 3:49 p.m. wreck occurred March 27 when D’Amico’s Isuzu Trooper SUV pulled into the path of a Mitsubishi Eclipse that was northbound on Route 11.
The officer said D’Amico was attempting to make a left turn onto Route 11 from the Ruebush Road railroad track crossing area on the east side of the highway.
The Eclipse was being driven by a juvenile and also had two juvenile passengers inside.
D’Amico’s mother was a passenger in the SUV.
All five people were taken to area hospitals, with one of the juvenile’s suffering from a serious head injury.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Mike Fleenor said Tuesday the seriously injured juvenile has recovered.
