Man pleads not guilty in crash that killed Curry College student
DEDHAM, Mass. (AP) — A Stoughton
man has pleaded not guilty to drunken driving and manslaughter charges
in connection with a fatal crash that killed a Curry College nursing
student and cheerleader.
Sean Jackman was released on $25,000 bail
and ordered to remain under house arrest except for medical and legal
appointments after entering his plea Wednesday in Norfolk Superior
Prosecutors say the 24-year-old Jackman was drunk when he
crashed his car in Canton in May, killing his passenger, 20-year-old
Evan Bard of Agawam. The couple had dated and although the relationship
had ended, they remained friends.
They were returning from a wedding at which Jackman had been the best man.
Jackman and his family refused comment after court.
Bard's great uncle, Norm Minor, says the family has been devastated by the loss.
