Kevin Coffay sentenced to 20 years
The Rockville man who pleaded guilty in connection with a May car crash that killed three of his friends faces up to 40 years in prison when he's sentenced Thursday.
Kevin Coffay, 20, pleaded guilty Nov. 10 to three counts of manslaughter after the crash that killed three Magruder High School students on May 15.
The crash happened when Coffay's car left Olney-Laytonsville Road just after 3 a.m. and hit a tree. Authorities say that Coffay then fled from the scene. He was found near his home in Rockville about three hours later with a strong odor of alcohol, police say.
Spencer Datt, 18, Haeley McGuire, 18, and John Hoover, 20, were all killed in the crash. Charles Anthony Nardella, 19, suffered serious injuries.
