Struthers woman sentenced in vehicular-homicide case



Published: Thu, July 10, 2014 @ 4:44 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A woman who was sentenced to five years in prison for killing a motorcyclist in a 2012 drunken-driving crash told Judge James C. Evans that her own mother was killed by a drunken driver when she was 6.

Jill Bissett, 49, of Struthers, also said today in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court that she is truly sorry for the accident that killed 20-year-old Tammy Miller and wanted to take responsibility for her actions.

Bissett pleaded guilty May 19 to counts of aggravated vehicular homicide, a second-degree felony, and driving under the influence of alcohol, a first-degree misdemeanor.

She admitted to driving drunk during a May 4, 2012, accident in which Miller was killed.

As part of the plea agreement, county prosecutors agreed to stand silent when Bissett was sentenced.
