- Upset judge won't grant guilty plea in fatal 2011 Wellesley crash
Scott Miller Cressman Independent staff
The trial for a fatal car crash is in flux after an agreement to give the accused drunk driver 27 months in jail was squashed by an angry judge on Monday.
Both the prosecution and defence lawyers are regrouping after Justice Peter Hambly blasted their proposed plea deal and would not let them move it to a new judge.
"In my view, the proposal in this case would bring the administration of justice into disrepute and is contrary to the public interest," said Hambly.
"It does not address the seriousness of what happened resulting in the death of an 11-year-old boy and it does not protect the public by sufficiently deterring others and condemning impaired driving."
Jeremy Glenfield, 36, of New Hamburg faced three charges in a criminal trial that started in September. His Jeep went through the Gerber Road stop sign and collided with the Huber family's van at the Nafziger Road intersection. The crash fatally injured 11-year-old Jeremy Huber, who was taken off life support two days later on Christmas Eve 2011....1a
