Vincent on release pending childbirth
Stephanie Ann Vincent, sentenced in April of 2005, for the Jan. 1, 2004 vehicular death of Brandon Abrahamson, 20, of Borger , Texas , has been released from the Texas County Detention Center until March 16, 2006 .
In a Nov. 21, 2005, court document, Vincent's attorney, Creig Rittenhouse pointed out that Vincent, 40, has been a model inmate, and is pregnant with a due date of Jan. 13.
Rittenhouse continued that Vincent was not a danger to the public and that [due to the pregnancy] the sentence modification was in the best interest of justice.
Another document filed by attorney David Petty called for Vincent's complete release, stating that Vincent had expressed remorse to him [Petty] for Abrahamson's death.
In pleading guilty in January of 2005, Vincent admitted that she had been drinking for several hours before she got behind the wheel of her pickup, with Abrahamson as one of two passengers. She also pled to the transportation of an open container, (whiskey), and a loaded handgun when her truck overturned northwest of Boise City, pinning and killing Abrahamson.
In the document Vincent signed for her release on personal recognizance, she agreed to appear in court on March 16, 2006 at 1:30 p.m. , and abide by the orders of the court. At that time she would serve the balance of her sentence in the Cimarron County jail day for day for 147 days, and that she would pay the balance of jail and court costs within 60 days of her release from the Cimarron County Jail.
The document also stipulates that Vincent, while on her maternity release, will abide by all the rules and conditions of her original probation agreement. .
