Feauto To Face Vehicular Homicide Charges

January 20, 2016

Sentencing for a Clarksville teen… charged with vehicular homicide in Sac County… was scheduled for Tuesday in Sac County District Court… but his plea agreement was withdrawn and Trevor Feauto will instead stand trial.

The 19-year-old Feauto was 17 at the time of his arrest in August 2014… but was charged as an adult. He was charged with two counts of homicide by vehicle, a class “B” felony. In November, he pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving, a class “C” felony. He faced up to ten years in prison on each count and fines of up to ten-thousand dollars.

Sac County Attorney Ben Smith said the plea agreement was withdrawn because family members of the crash victims didn’t believe it provided adequate justice. Feauto will now stand trial on the original charges… two counts of vehicular homicide reckless driving and two counts of homicide by vehicle.

Feauto was driving a pickup which collided with a car driven by 16-year-old Bailey Jacobsen. She and her 16-year-old passenger, Lindsey Quirk, were killed. A report from the DCI Crime Lab shows Feauto’s blood alcohol level was 0.133 percent, above the limit of .02.

In July, 21-year-old Matthias Stork of Breda was sentenced to 45 days in jail for supplying alcohol to Feauto.
