Driver in fatal Yates crash ends effort to have conviction vacated

An Oneida County woman who caused a fatal Yates County crash in 2014 has dropped an effort to have her conviction vacated.

Yates County District Attorney Todd Casella said Sabrina Livermore recently discontinued what is called a 440 motion. Livermore’s attorney, John Cirando, filed the paperwork Oct. 30.

Livermore pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide and driving while intoxicated. The homicide charge is a class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Livermore, who was 26 at the time of the crash, was sentenced by now retired Yates County Judge W. Patrick Falvey to 3-9 years in prison. She was released earlier this year.
