Woman behind bars for fatal crash sentenced for additional crimes

WHITE IN COURT PICUpdate (01/26/17 11:30 a.m.) — Breanna White entered and Alford plea for two counts of sexual abuse and one count of furnishing alcohol to a minor. An Alford plea is when a defendant enters a guilty plea while at the same time maintaining their innocence.

White was sentenced in a Medford courtroom on Thursday to 111 months behind bars for the crimes. All but 30 of those months will be concurrent with her earlier sentence for causing a fatal car crash on August 15, 2015.


Medford, Ore. — Breanna White, the woman who pleaded guilty to causing a fatal car crash on August 15, 2015, was sentenced to 18 years behind bars.

Oregon State Police say White was driving a car on Gunnell road, when it hit a tree, ejecting four of the five passengers in the car. A girl also died as a result of injuries from the crash.

White was also involved in another car crash just a week prior. Police say three passengers were injured when White struck a fence.

Since the rollover crash last year, Breanna White has been hit with more charges including conspiracy and sex abuse.

White was already sentenced to 15 months for trying to get someone to burglarize her grandmother’s home to raise bail money.
