PUCKHKEEPSIE On Thursday afternoon, the jury in Camay Pryce’s trial returned a guilty judgment, finding the 35-year-old guilty of vehicular manslaughter and driving while under the influence of drugs in connection with the death of US Navy veteran Erin Doc Clancy.On September 7, 2022, there was a collision on Pleasant Valley’s Route 44. At that point, the jury supported the claim that Pryce was impaired by drugs when she tried to pass two eastbound cars in a no-passing zone and collided head-on with Clancy’s westbound car. At the scene, Clancy was pronounced deceased.
Pryce has been detained in the Dutchess County Jail since her arrest on April 19, 2023. The case against her was prosecuted by senior assistant district attorneys for Dutchess County, Jennifer Fluck and Anna Diehn.After the grand jury indicted her on April 6, 2023, police had been looking for her for a few days with an arrest warrant. After being found in Poughkeepsie, she was placed under arrest.
Judge Jessica Segal of the Dutchess County Court praised the jurors for their work and released them from their responsibilities following the announcement of the decision. Judge Segal turned to face the defendant, who was still wearing the orange jumpsuit from the Dutchess County Jail, and said that she was being sent back to the jail to await sentencing.
For the minor DWAI conviction, she risks a year in prison and a maximum term of seven years in prison for vehicular manslaughter. When she is sentenced on March 21, 2024, the court may potentially impose fines on her.
