The final sentencing, which may include lesser penalties like county jail time, is scheduled for February 13 by Supreme Court Justice Jason Cook.

The accident occurred on July 3 on Route 14A in Barrington. Early in the morning, O’Shaughnessy’s vehicle veered off the road, rolling over multiple times, and eventually crashing into a culvert and trees, landing on its roof. The crash claimed the life of 16-year-old Tyreace A. Gregory, a passenger in the vehicle.
