Shady Cove man pleads guilty to negligent homicide

AR-151129841Jackson County, Ore. — A Shady Cove man facing charges in the death of a teenager after a rollover crash this summer will never be able to drive again.

24-year-old Casey Mock pleaded guilty on Monday to criminally negligent homicide.

In August, Mock crashed and rolled over a pick-up truck with 17-year-old Brianna Saint Arnold in the bed of the truck.

The teen died from her injuries.

Mock’s attorney described him as having low functioning mental ability.

Mock himself spoke in court apologizing for his actions.

“I would like to sincerely apologize I know that does not make it better, but I am very very sorry for your loss. I wish I could take it back,” expressed Mock.

Judge Tim Barnack of Jackson County Circuit Court says, “I can tell when people are sincere and when they are not sincere… Mr. Mock is sincere.”

Mock’s driver’s license has been revoked for life.

If caught driving, he will have to serve two years in prison.

Mock will have three years supervised probation and must comply with disability services.
