The driver convicted of a fatal crash on Route 2 in Brooke County last January appeared in court on Monday afternoon. Kristy Jo Jones was out on bond awaiting sentencing when she was allegedly caught driving on a suspended license.
A bond modification hearing was held on Monday. The prosecution said Jones admitted to driving — and her bond was altered. She cannot leave the state without permission from her probation officer and is still not permitted to drive, though she remains outside of jail.
Her sentencing is set for April 23.Jones could be ordered to spend 3-to-15 years in prison for her original offense, which left a Weirton man dead.
