ROCHESTER, N.Y. — With the support of his wife, the man charged in connection with the death of his 6-month-old daughter in a car crash last Halloween accepted a plea deal on Wednesday.
Isaac McCrea pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter and drunk driving under Leandra's Law.
The 34-year-old was facing up to 15 years in prison. He now faces up to six years for the manslaughter charge and up to three years for Leandra's Law charge.
Police say McCrea was driving drunk last Halloween on Route 104 in Webster with three children in the car when he lost control and went off the road.
His 6-month-old daughter Karena died at the scene. McCrea's two other children suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
"There are no winners in these types of cases. This was an extremely emotional case to the family. He made a poor decision on that day on October 31st of last year and he's owned up to his responsibilities," said prosecutor Raymond Benitez.
McCrea will be sentenced on August 30th.
