MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Berkeley County judge sentenced a 19-year-old Inwood resident to 3 to 15 years incarceration and a $3,000 fine Friday in the 2019 New Year’s Eve death of an 18-year-old Musselman High School student.
Nicholas James Shackleford, 19, had previously entered a guilty plea October 19th to the charge of driving under the influence resulting in death.
Berkeley County Circuit Judge R. Steven Redding said Friday he had weighed the victim impact statements from family members and friends and also the behavior of the defendant in the months between the 2019 car crash in Inwood that claimed the life of Kristen Barron.
Shackelford had been behind the wheel New Year’s Eve when he flipped the car at the intersection of Sulphur Springs Road and Phoebe Way. Barron was ejected and died at the scene.Read more: https://wvmetronews.com/2020/11/20/berkeley-teenager-sentenced-to-prison-after-deadly-dui-crash/
