Man enters no-contest plea in crash that killed siblings
BEDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A 50-year-old man has pleaded no contest in a crash that killed two teenage siblings as they walked near a roadway in southeastern Michigan.
The Monroe News reports that a judge accepted Raymond Reyome’s plea on Dec. 14. He is charged with two counts of reckless driving causing death. A no-contest plea isn’t an admission of guilt, but is treated as such for sentencing.
Reyome of Erie Township is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 7. He faces at least 11½ years in prison as part of a sentencing agreement.
Police have said 13-year-old Justin Haun and 16-year-old Alyssa Haun were struck July 4 by a pickup that left the edge of a roadway in Bedford Township, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of Detroit. They were pronounced dead at hospital.
