Driver who killed Auburn teen in July crash pleads guilty; likely to spend 7 to 24 years in prison

The Owasco man who was charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, aggravated driving while intoxicated, and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle pleaded guilty to the charges; admitting that he caused the crash that killed Chloe Calhoun, the Auburn graduate who died from injuries sustained in the crash on July 27.

Dain Schneider, of Owasco pleaded guilty to those charges in exchange for a slightly lesser sentence, which attorney’s say will mean Schneider serving a minimum of 7 to 24 years in prison.

Schneider will be sentenced on October 18.

In court on Tuesday, he admitted to causing the crash — pointing out to Judge Thomas Leone that he had gone to a bar, had several alcoholic drinks, and proceeded to drive home — at which time he crashed into the vehicle in front of him.
