Sentencing for a Dayton woman admitting guilt in a deadly, high-speed police through Moraine and Miami Twp. has been rescheduled.
Alyssa Irwin-Debraux, initially set for sentencing Monday in the Sept. 11 crash that killed a local Realtor, will now learn her fate Feb. 7, according to the judge’s office.
The delay came after Irwin-Debraux, 19, wrote a letter to the judge seeking to change her Dec. 20 pleas and to get new counsel, citing “pressure” from her attorney, Keith Fricker.
However, after a planned talk between court officials Monday, Fricker remains her attorney and sentencing has been rescheduled, records show.
Irwin-Debraux pleaded guilty last month to grand theft, failure to comply and involuntary manslaughter stemming from Moraine police cruiser crash along Ohio 741 that killed Mary Taulbee.
Moraine officer Matt Barrie reached speeds of more than 80 miles per hour in pursuing a stolen Jeep authorities said the defendant was driving.
Taulbee - a 57-year-old longtime Realtor who had worked in Dayton, Englewood, Lebanon, Miamisburg, Springboro and Washington Twp. - was not involved in the police chase.
