Woman Convicted Of Three Charges In Fatal Sioux City Crash


By Richard Pratt

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Sioux City woman has been convicted of three charges stemming from a fatal collision between her pickup and a motorcycle.

The Sioux City Journal reports that 37-year-old Kimberly Pauley pleaded guilty last week to not having a valid driver's license and not having insurance. She entered an Alford plea to a charge of failing to yield while making a left turn. Under the Alford plea, Pauley didn't admit guilty but acknowledged the prosecution likely could prove the charge.

Police say that on Sept. 27, Pauley turned her truck left in front of the motorcycle being driven by 25-year-old Cody Harris on the east side of Sioux City. Harris was pronounced dead at the scene.

Pauley's sentencing is set for June 27.
