Prison for driver in fatal DUI crash
Online Staff Report
Antavia Shierre McGee, 23, was sentenced to 13 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol and driving without a license in connection with a crash that killed two people last year, Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato announced.
Jan. 19, 2013, Rockford Police were called to the area of Winnebago and Kent streets for a car crash. When officers arrived at the scene, they found an Oldsmobile piled into a tree and three people inside the vehicle.
The driver, identified as McGee, was injured and treated at Rockford Memorial Hospital. Passengers Shakiyla Ellis and Desiree Mannery, were killed in the crash.
A blood test found McGee had a blood-alcohol concentration of .233, three times the legal limit of .08. Open alcohol was also found in her vehicle.
McGee must serve at least 85 percent of her sentence.
