Parolee Sentenced to 20 years for Intoxication Assault

On February 20, 2020, , Judge Phil Grant of the 9th District Court sentenced Kassandra Lynn Nesbitt, 36 years of age, to 20 years in prison for two charges of Intoxication Assault arising out of a crash that occurred on April 13, 2019. Due to the affirmative finding of a deadly weapon, Nesbitt will have to serve at least half of her sentence before she is eligible for parole.
During the sentencing hearing, Montgomery County Assistant District Attorneys Philip Harris and Andrew James presented evidence that as Nesbitt was driving southbound in the main lanes of traffic on US 59, she struck the concrete dividing wall, causing her to lose control of her vehicle, careen across the main lanes of US 59, cut through the grass separating the main lanes from the service road and crash onto the service road directly in front of a southbound sedan driven by Debra Ringo. Ms. Ringo was unable to avoid colliding with Nesbitt’s vehicle and as a result, both Ms. Ringo and her passenger—her minor granddaughter—suffered serious, life-altering injuries.
Blood test showed that her BAC was 0.148 about an hour and 15 minutes after the crash. During the investigation, a still-cold beer can was found in Nesbitt’s vehicle as well as two puppies. One of the puppies located in Nesbitt’s vehicle died in the crash.
