A Sterling man is facing up to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday (July 17) to involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence, and driving with a suspended operator’s license.
According to court documents, Andre Michael Glenn, 27, was driving three friends home after a night of drinking and dining Feb. 20, 2017, at an area restaurant when he lost control of his Jeep Wrangler on Route 28. The Jeep struck the concrete lane divider and two of Glenn’s passengers were ejected. Gabrielle Miranda Perry, was found unconscious in the middle of the highway and was pronounced dead at the scene by first-responders.
According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, Glenn allowed the vehicle to drift to the right and then applied the brakes while at a high rate of speed to avoid hitting the concrete barrier. The vehicle hit the barrier and veered to the left. Glenn overcorrected, causing the Jeep to roll over several times. Perry and the other rear passenger were ejected from the Jeep.
Deputies found Glenn’s vehicle with no right front tire and extensive body damage, and Glenn had bloodshot eyes, odor of alcohol on his breath and he was so unsteady on his feet he had to be assisted to a sitting position against the concrete barrier wall near the accident wreckage. Glenn’s breath test showed a .14 blood-alcohol level, well over the .08 legal limit.
Glenn’s bond was revoked after his pleas of guilty and he is being held without bond in the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center. Glenn’s final sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 19 in Loudoun County Circuit Court, at which time he will face up to 12 years in prison.
