ROCHESTER, Ind. (AP) — An appeal filed by an Indiana woman convicted in a crash that killed three children crossing a highway to board a school bus contends the state didn't present enough evidence that she was criminally reckless.
According to the South Bend Tribune, a brief filed earlier this month with the Indiana Court of Appeals argues the state didn't prove Alyssa Shepherd acted recklessly as opposed to negligently.
A Fulton County jury convicted Shepherd of three counts of reckless homicide and other charges.
A judge sentenced her to four years in prison.
The October 2018 crash near Rochester killed 6-year-old twin brothers Xzavier and Mason Ingle, and their 9-year-old sister, Alivia Stahl, and seriously injured a fourth child.
