BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A woman who pleaded guilty this week to a car crash that killed another driver last year in Brunswick County faces new charges in Wilmington.
Anna Kathleen Pierce, 28, pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor death by motor vehicle in a crash that killed Sheila Crocker Sorrentino on June 18, 2012. Prosecutors say a judge sentenced Pierce to a 75-day suspended jail sentence, 36 months probation and 18 days active jail sentence.
Immediately after sentencing she was arrested on a warrant for breaking and entering, larceny and conspiracy. An arrest warrant says the charges stem from Pierce allegedly stealing four nail guns with another woman from a Wilmington home in July. Pierce’s co-defendant Jessica Davenport is in the New Hanover County Jail waiting to face a host of charges.
