50 years in prison…..Deal or no deal?
The Carter Family killed April 12, 2009
Aimee Michael, the young lady accused of killing five people in an Easter Sunday traffic accident and leaving the scene has decided to turn down a plea deal with the Fulton County District Attorney’s office. Her trial date has been set for October 25. Both Aimee and her mother Sheila Michael face charges in the case. Prosecutors say Aimee was on her way to pick up some ice cream and cake on Easter Sunday 2009, driving along Camp Creek Parkway in a BMW when she sideswiped a Mercedes driven by Robert Carter causing a chain reaction accident that killed Carter, his wife Delisia, their infant son Ethan, Delisia’s daughter Kayla, and six yr old Morgan Johnson who died in a Volkswagen that was also involved in the accident.
Michaels panicked, left the scene of the accident and never reported her involvement. Her mother is accused of helping her daughter hide evidence by getting her car fixed. But exhaustive detective work and help from the media lead to both women’s arrest almost 2 weeks after the accident.
The Fulton County District Attorney offered Aimee Michael 50 years in prison and her mother 5 years in prison. Both women decided to take their chance at a trial.
Both women were released on bond and Aimee Michael was put on 24-hour home confinement.
