Austin Jeffery Farley entered the plea Wednesday on felony charges of murder and driving under the influence of alcohol in the crash early Sunday.

The 26-year-old Irvine man pleaded guilty in 2009 to misdemeanor drunken driving.

Prosecutors allege he made a left-hand turn against a red arrow and crashed into a sedan carrying four teenage girls who were being driven home from a birthday party by a parent.

Ashton Sweet died Tuesday of her injuries.

Another teen was severely injured but is expected to survive.

Authorities say that Farley had a blood-alcohol content of more than twice the legal limit after the crash.

    He looks like a real genius. People should be forced to get a license before reproducing. The consequences of not requiring a license is that animals like this are born.

    Thurston Howell IV has gotten away with his previous 19-arrests relatively unscathed. It will be very interesting to see what Daddy does here with his son Numbnuts this time around.

      Of course, there just had to be a nasty racist comment! Do you read? You do realize this guy isn’t Hispanic, right? Oh never mind, you’re an idiot.

  7. The Boogey Man says:

    Have fun when you close your eyes and go to sleep tonight. Ashton’s spirit will haunt you. With your comment, you’ve brought her restless soul back from the other side. Can’t believe people post comments like yours. Don’t you realize that you’re now going to be haunted?
