Erin Brown Faces 30 Yrs For Giving Drunk Boyfriend The Car Keys
Erin Brown did just that and now the resident of Hermitage, Tenn., faces 30 years in prison.
Back in December, Brown, 21, gave her car keys to her boyfriend, 23-year-old Trevor Bradshaw, thinking he was sober enough to drive.
Bradshaw wasn’t and, as a result, he struck two pedestrians — Michael Brooksher, 22, and Tommy Allen, 23 — both of whom died, according to the Tennessean.
Bradshaw was charged with vehicular homicide and assault, and, if convicted, could serve a 30-year sentence.
In an unusual twist, however, Brown faces the same charges as her boyfriend, even though she had just been a passenger during the accident.
In Tennessee, vehicular homicide can be charged to someone who knowingly gives their vehicle to an inebriated driver, according to Gather.com’s Abby Greenhill.
