Deshazor Everett's Girlfriend Was Killed In Crash - Ex-NFL player Pleads Guilty Of Reckless Driving

Deshazor Everett, a former safety for Washington, was given three months of house arrest after pleading guilty to reckless driving for his part in a crash in December that killed his passenger and girlfriend, Olivia Peters, who was 29 years old.

Officially, he was given a 12-month house arrest sentence, but nine months were taken off. Everett will also have to do 100 hours of community service and make a public service announcement for the NFL and other leagues.

Everett, who is 30 years old, was first charged with felony involuntary manslaughter in Virginia in January. An investigation showed that he was speeding the night of December 23 when his sports car crashed into trees and rolled over.

A statement from the sheriff’s office after Everett turned himself in at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center in February said that an investigation found he was going more than twice the 45 mph (72 kph) speed limit when his Nissan GT-R went off the road on December 23.

In Virginia, careless driving is a misdemeanor that can get you up to a year in jail. On September 8, he will get his sentence in Loudoun County General District Court.

Everett, who used to be the captain of Washington’s special teams and backup safety, was seriously hurt in the crash and stayed in the hospital for four days. After everyone went out to dinner, linebacker Jamin Davis and cornerback Benjamin St-Juste were in a car behind Everett.

Everett was thankful for having the support of Peters’ family

Everett was asked what it was like to have the support of Peters’ family after he was sentenced on Thursday.

He told Washington’s WTOP, “It was such a tragedy that happened, and to still have the family support you and have good, open communication with the family means a lot.” “We had to get through it together as a group. Everyone has lost someone. She was a special person who made an impression on all of us.

Kaveh Noorishad, who is Everett’s lawyer, said that he thought the decision was fair.

Noorishad told reporters after his client’s sentencing, “I think the judge looked at the facts of the case, the actual evidence from the case about the speed and the circumstances of the accident, and I think she made a fair decision.”

“I think her sentence is clear, and I hope that it will help not only Mr. Everett but also the community, the NFL, and make some big changes.”

Everett pled guilty to the lesser charge in July.

After the crash, Everett was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Peters died in a hospital. He was from Las Vegas.
