WACO, Texas (AP) - A driver must serve ten years in prison over
a 2006 street racing crash in Waco that killed two women and one's
unborn child.
Twenty-one-year-old Jason Cory Maddux of Waco yesterday pleaded
guilty to racing resulting in death and to manslaughter.
The victims were in the Maddux car -- 20-year-olds Amanda Marie
Weber of Waco and Julia "Meagon" Campbell Adkins of Riesel.
Police say Adkins was about six months pregnant.
Investigators say Maddux was driving a car that went out of
control and hit a tree while street racing with his 45-year-old
Michael Steven Strasser, who was driving a pickup, pleaded
guilty in 2007 to racing resulting in death. He must serve ten
years in prison.
Maddux attorney Phil Martinez told the Waco Tribune-Herald that
his client has some mental, psychological issues that were taken
into consideration.
