Addiction counselor’s DUI murder case begins

An alcohol counselor driving drunk at night struck a pedestrian and continued on for another 2 miles while the man was lodged in her windshield, a prosecutor said in an opening statement Monday.

 

The driver, Sherri Lynn Wilkins, also failed to call 911 or stop as the man lay dying, Deputy District Attorney John Harlan told jurors. In the critical moments after the November 2012 collision, Wilkins “drove him closer to his death,” Harlan said.

 

“This case is about holding her responsible for his death,” he told jurors.
