Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov will file charges against a 16 year old girl who was involved in a deadly car accident on October 11th. Madeline Shely’s vehicle hit a pick up at an intersection on Highway 370. Shely and one passenger, 15 year old Carly Kelly were critically injured. 15 year old passenger Nathaniel LaFave was killed. The driver of the pick up was not injured.
Polikov says all the charges will be filed in juvenile court where it is not a criminal proceeding. He says juvenile court is designed to handle rehabilitation and this is the best option to take in this case.
