Russell sentenced to 14 years

In 2001 Frederick Russell's SUV hit a car with 7 WSU students, killing 3 and seriously injuring 3. He only this fall was tried, because he left the country and lived in Ireland until he was found and extradited. Frederick Russell was convicted of vehicular homicide Nov. 6 and sentenced Jan. 2. Russell sentenced to 14 years, Spokesman Review, Jan. 3, 2008.

Tossing away a prepared statement, Russell took a deep breath, fingered a black rosary with a silver cross provided by a former employer who had spoken on his behalf, and said, “I’m sorry. You waited too long to hear that.”
Russell is represented by Franscisco Duarte, who is also a UW Trial Ad instructor.
