A woman who had her driving privileges permanently revoked after being convicted of aggravated vehicular assault and DUI in 2005 may be allowed drive again.
Molly Farmer asked a Summit County Common Pleas Judge yesterday to reinstate her privileges. She was known as Molly Wagner when she was convicted after a crash in the Merriman Valley that killed 21-year-old Jacqueline "Jackie" Bryan.
The Beacon Journal reports prosecutors and Farmer's attorneys agree that the original judge in the case didn't have the authority to impose a lifetime driving ban. But prosecutors argue Farmer agreed to the sentence in a plea deal and that under normal guidelines, Farmer shouldn't be eligible for driving privileges until at least 2020.
Farmer was sentenced to five years of probation, 500 hours of community service, and what was believed to be a lifetime license suspension in December 2005
Judge Amy Corrigall Jones heard the arguments yesterday. She will issue a written decision.
