Man sentenced in deadly Columbiana County crash

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio - An Alliance, Ohio man who pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter learned his sentence Tuesday in Columbiana Municipal Court.

A plea agreement had reduced the charge against 20-year old Conner Sell, for a two-car crash, which caused the death of Jesse Mitchell in February of 2012.  

Prior to the sentencing, the victims mother and sister gave statements and told Sell they forgive him.

"We realize you have to live with this the rest of your life but don't and Jesse wouldn't want it to ruin the rest of your life," says mother of victim Kim Mitchell. 

"I pray you see how precious and how fragile life is. Don't waste your life. Don't be careless. Be thankful," says sister of victim Kimberly Mitchell. 

Sell told the family he is terribly sorry and wishes everyday it would go away.

Vehicular manslaughter is a second-degree misdemeanor. Judge Mark Frost approved the prosecutors recommendation and sentenced Sell to 90-days in jail, a two-year license suspension, a $750 fine and three years probation.
