Editor’s note: This story clarifies that while a plea deal has been worked out, Bosel hasn’t been officially sentenced yet.

(WKBN) – Columbiana County Recorder Theresa Bosel has been convicted of vehicular manslaughter in connection with a crash last year that killed a man from California.

Bosel entered a “no contest” plea and was then found guilty by Judge Molly Johnson.

The state and defense worked out a deal for Bosel to serve 30 days under house arrest, to have her driver’s license suspended for a year and to spend 12 months on probation. That would also include a $150 fine.

Bosel hasn’t been officially sentenced yet; that will happen on December 29.

In September, Bosel tried to back out of a plea deal with prosecutors over concerns she would have her driving skills tested and was set for trial later this month.

She was charged in connection with a crash in August 2019 that claimed the life of Cecil Chamberlain.
