HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — The woman who pleaded
guilty to causing a fiery crash that killed a mother and two high school
students will spend a minimum six years behind bars.

In February, Erma
Brown pleaded guilty to three counts of DUI causing death.

The 2-vehicle
accident happened at about 7:30 a.m. on April 2, 2009 on Alternate Route 10 near
the intersection of Eden’s Branch Road in Barboursville.

Investigators
say Brown crossed the center line and hit the car driven by 47-year-old Carole
Crawford. Crawford, her daughter Meaghan, 16, and Kelsey Kuhn, 15, died in the
crash after their car caught fire.

During Monday’s hearing in Cabell
County Circuit Court, Judge Dan O’Hanlon sentenced Brown to three consecutive
2-10 year prison terms. That is the maximum sentenced allowed for her
plea.

Brown was taking prescription medication for depression and panic
attacks the morning of the crash. But during that plea hearing She admitted
publicly she was taking much more than what was prescribed.

Before
handing down the sentence, the court heard from both families.

Author: ”Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare – The Complete Truth of the Full Impact of Antidepressants Upon Us & Our World” & Withdrawal CD “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!”

She has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Serzone, Remeron, Anafranil, Fen-Phen, Redux and Meridia as well as the new atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa, Geodon, Seroquel and Abilify), as well as pain killers, and has testified before the FDA and congressional subcommittee members on antidepressants.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: store.drugawareness.org And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan. You can even get a whole month of access to the withdrawal CD with tips on rebuilding after the meds, all six of my DVDs, hundreds of radio interviews, lectures, TV interviews I have done over the years PLUS my book on antidepressants with more information than you will find anywhere else for only $30 membership for a month (that is only $5 more than the book alone would cost) at www.drugawareness.org. (Definitely the best option to save outrageous postage charges for those out of the country!)
