Lawyer Files Motion to Suppress Statements Made to Police in Fatal West Paris Crash
The lawyer for an Oxford teenager facing manslaughter charges for allegedly causing a car crash in West Paris that killed two friends has filed a motion to suppress statements made to police. A lawyer for 19-year-old Kristina Lowe argues that when his client talked to a state trooper in the hospital the day after the crash, she was on strong painkillers and was not read her rights. Police allege Lowe admitted to texting while driving at the time of the January 7 crash. Police say Lowe had also been drinking, smoking marijuana and was driving 75 miles per hour. Lowe pleaded not guilty. Her lawyer blamed icy roads. The Sun Journal, reports that the prosecution and defense have until next week to submit information to the judge before he rules.
