Troupe to learn sentence in fatal ATV crash

September 4, 2006

Douglas-  The Coffee County woman convicted of driving under the influence the night her car struck an ATV overloaded with kids, killing five, will be sentenced Tuesday. 

Last month, a jury found Amanda Troupe guilty of one count of driving under the influence.  She was acquitted of all other charges, including multiple counts of vehicular homicide. 

In 2003, Troupe's Lincoln L-S struck an ATV overloaded with six kids. The head-on collision killed Megan Nelson, Kayla and Dustin Varnedore, Lindsay Joyner, and Courtney Arsenault. 

Troupe faces a minimum fine of $350 and a minimum of 2 days in jail.  She could be sentenced to a maximum of 12 months.
