Lebanon — Joshua D. McCraw would spend a dozen years in prison, and another 11 years on probation, if a judge accepts a plea agreement filed last week.
McCraw, 21, was charged with 14 separate crimes, including causing death while being intoxicated and reckless homicide, after he drove a Chevrolet Impala at nearly 90 mph into a rural Zionsville home on May 10, killing one passenger and injuring three other persons, including a husband and wife who were asleep in their bed.
Nikki LaBolle, 21, Lebanon, the passenger, suffered multiple internal injuries and died at the scene. McCraw and LaBolle had a child together.
Part of the plea agreement requires McCraw to pay restitution, as yet undetermined, to Pam LaBolle, mother of Nikki LaBolle, and to homeowner William Shoemaker, who suffered a broken arm in the crash.
McCraw has been in the Boone County Jail since he was arrested on May 12, immediately after being discharged from an Indianapolis hospital. Several requests to reduce his $25,000 bond were denied by Superior Court II Judge Rebecca McClure.
