Vegas motorist faces judge in Halloween DUI death
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A 42-year-old Las Vegas man is due for sentencing in the drunken driving death of a 12-year-old trick-or-treater a year ago.
Justin Caramanica is set to appear before a judge Monday following his guilty plea in July to driving under the influence involving death in the Oct. 31, 2011, crash that killed Faith Love.
Love was dressed as a Native American princess when she was struck by Caramanica's car as she went trick-or-treating on a residential street in western Las Vegas.
Police say Caramanica's blood-alcohol percentage was just under the .08 limit for driving in Nevada, but that he might also have been under the influence of prescription drugs.
Caramanica's bail was revoked after his arrest on a DUI charge following another crash in September.
