SARPY CO., NE – A woman has pleaded guilty to several charges stemming from a fatal 2019 crash that took place southwest of Omaha.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, the crash happened on February 9, 2019, when a 2001 Saturn driven by Nabil Shokai, 67, broke down on I-80 near the interchange with State Highway 370. The Saturn was struck from behind by 2013 Hyundai driven by Kenisha Prentice. Shokai was taken by helicopter to Nebraska Medical Center, where he died.
A passenger in the Saturn was hospitalized with critical injuries, but recovered.
Prentice, 25, appeared in court on Friday and pleaded guilty to motor vehicle homicide and causing serious injury while driving while under the influence of alcohol, among other charges. She will return for sentencing in February, and faces as many as 24 years in prison.
