On March 24, a Raleigh man pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in connection to a crash on December 2 in which a nurse who was on her way to work suffered fatal personal injuries.
Twenty-five-year-old Aleksey Glazunov was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Donald Stephens to 13-16 months in prison. The maximum prison sentence he could have been given was 50 months. He was also ordered to pay fines of $17,634.
On the day of the crash, Glazunov was passing another vehicle on Skycrest Drive and lost control of the vehicle, resulting in a head-on collision with a vehicle driven by 57-year-old Teresa Weintraub, who was on her was to work at Duke Raleigh Hospital.
Glazunov apologized to the family in court, saying that he would carry her death with him for the remainder of his life.
Originally, Glazunov had been charged by police with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and aggressive driving. However, after seeing his driving record, which showed that he had a history of speeding violations, the involuntary manslaughter charge was added.
