Guam - Marco Nelson intends to plead guilty on Friday to vehicular homicide while intoxicated. In exchange for his plea, the Attorney General's Office will recommend he only spend between five to eight years behind bars with credit for time served.
In 2012 Nelson was charged with the death of his 4-year-old daughter. Nelson was drunk when he led police on a high speed chase and slammed into a concrete pole. His daughter was not in a car seat and died. According to the proposed plea agreement, nelson has agreed to help with public service announcements in English and Chuukese, warning people about the dangers of drinking and driving.
The plea deal would allow Nelson to be eligible for parole in three years. The change of plea hearing is scheduled for two o'clock Friday afternoon in Judge James Canto's courtroom.
