Woman back in court after school denied her community service

Kelsey Reid

BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) A Clay County, Indiana woman was back in court after a local school district denied part of her sentence.

In the past we told you about Kelsey Reid, a young woman who was charged with involuntary man slaughter in a car accident. In 2013, a car driven by Kelsey Reid veered off a Clay County road and flipped several times. Passengers Darrell Moore and Alexis Holbert-Darkis died at the scene.

Part of her sentence was to speak to teens about the dangers of speeding. But, she couldn’t complete her sentence because of the Clay County School Corporation.

Wednesday Reid was back in court to find a solution. After the hearing Judge Blaine Akers told both families, he would reach out to the school corporation in an attempt to get them to co-operate.

“I don’t understand why it can’t happen,” Moore’s sister Ina Wright said. “I mean we have lost so many kids in this town, too many kids from speeding from reckless driving, from being ignorant.”
