FOND DU LAC, WI (WHBL) - A 19 year old Fond du Lac County woman will be sentenced this morning, for causing the deaths of three of her friends in a so-called “hill-jumping” crash in February. Prosecutors have recommended five years of probation for Carly Ottery, of Campbellsport, as part of a plea deal. But Circuit Judge Dale English can still sentence her to up to 30 years in prison, after she pleaded no contest to her three original charges of homicide by negligent driving. Authorities said Ottery drove an S-U-V at up to 109 miles per hour before it went over a hillcrest, hit a bump, and flipped over in a field. Katie Berg, Caitlin Scannell, and Sabrina Stahl were killed. Six other teens, including Ottery, were injured. All nine played girls’ soccer at Campbellsport High School, and they had left an overnight sleepover before the crash occurred. Alcohol was not involved.
