Oct. 17, 2013 – A 17-year-old charged with murder was sentenced in Superior Court after he pleaded guilty to two counts of felony homicide by vehicle in the first degree.
In addition to the homicide by vehicle charges, Christopher Eggersdorf faced two counts of felony murder, criminal damage to property in the first degree, aggravated assault, serious injury by vehicle, reckless driving, no insurance and no headlights.
He was sentenced to 40 years – 15 years in prison and 25 years’ probation.
The Georgia State patrol said the then-16-year-old driver’s Ford Mustang struck the left side of a Pontiac Bonneville, killing 50 year old Lora Thompson and 3 year old Anna Grace Jones at the intersection of Ransom Free Road and Ga. 283 in Clermont.
The teen had a stop sign when the car struck the left side of Thompson’s Pontiac.
Just so you know, in Georgia, a 16-year-old can only be charged as an adult if he or she commits certain serious felonies, such as murder.
