Janesville Woman Pleads No Contest in Fatal Rhinelander Speeding Accident

A Janesville woman pleaded no contest Wednesday to charges stemming from a fatal 100 mph Rhinelander car accident last year.

According to court documents, 27 year-old Sara L. McGrath pleaded no contest in Oneida County Court to a felony count of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and a misdemeanor charge of endangering safety by the dangerous use of a weapon. She originally faced a charge of homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle.

Court records show McGrath was driving a yellow Corvette more than 100 mph along Highway 70 on May 2, 2009, when she lost control at a curve. Her passenger, 50 year-old Mary Frantz, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. McGrath was uninjured.

McGrath’s attorney and Oneida County District Attorney Michael Bloom worked out a plea agreement that includes a one-year deferred judgment, which allows for the dismissal of the felony count if McGrath stays out of trouble.
