A 23-year-old Gaithersburg native plead guilty Thursday morning to two felony counts in what police say was a drunk driving incident that killed an 18-year-old girl in Vermont, according to a report by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Police say Derek Seber, a former Norwich University student, was driving drunk on Oct. 2, 2011—with a blood-alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit—when he crashed his car, the Burlington Free Press reports. The impact killed Renee Robbins, of Kentwood, Mich., who one was of seven passengers in the car and was sitting on someone's lap in the front seat.
The other six passengers were hospitalized with various, non-life threatening injuries.
The 23-year-old is awaiting sentencing, but the prosecution recommends a two and half year sentence as part of his plea agreement, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
"Robbins's father, Mark Robbins of Oxford, Mass., said he doesn't believe the proposed prison time is long enough," the Chronicle's report states.
Seber originally pleaded not guilty in Vermont Superior Court to one count of driving under the influence with death resulting, one count of grossly negligent operation of a motor vehicle with death resulting and one count of leaving the scene of a fatal crash, the Burlington Free Press reported.
