Guilty Plea by Driver Distracted by Sex

MANKATO  (AP) – Prosecutors in southern Minnesota are recommending four years in prison for a man who has pleaded guilty to charges in a car crash that killed two women, including one who witnesses say he was having sex with while driving.

Mark Anders Chalin told Blue Earth District Court Judge Bradley Walker Monday he doesn’t remember anything about what led to last year’s crash that killed 23-year-old Amber Menezes, of Mankato, and 35-year- old Jonna Martin, of Lakeville.

Witnesses told investigators Menezes was straddling Chalin while he was driving on County Road 90 and blocking his view of the road. Chalin’s car slammed headon into Martin’s vehicle.

The 24-year-old Chalin pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular homicide.
