Deshazor Everett, former Washington safety, pleads guilty to reckless driving

Jul 22, 2022

Former Washington safety Deshazor Everett pleaded guilty to reckless driving for his role in a December crash that killed his passenger.

Everett was initially charged in Virginia with felony involuntary manslaughter in January after an investigation found he was speeding before his sports car slammed into trees and rolled over on the night of Dec. 23.

Reckless driving is a misdemeanor in Virginia punishable by up to a year in jail. He's scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 8 in General District Court in Loudoun County.

Everett's plea to the reduced charge was entered Tuesday. Messages sent to Everett’s attorney and a spokesperson for the Commonwealth’s Attorney on Wednesday were not immediately returned.
